30 Day Military Challenge - Day 17: Post a picture of something your S.O. left with you while he was away and how that helped you. Did/do you carry it with you or sleep with it?
There is actually nothing he leaves me with. All of his things are already at the house, so if I would say there is something, it would be his cologne. When there are days that I feel so alone and that the deployment is never going to end and I absolutely miss him, the smell of him, or having that smell be near me as if he's still home, I would either smell his cologne or put it on one of his sleep shirts and then wear that to bed. Otherwise, the only thing that helps me through is seeing pictures of him and receiving phone calls, letters, or e-mails.
