Love and worry go hand in hand

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Well, it's 12:10, about 2 hours past our bedtime. Jerry just got paged for a fire and quickly left. I absolutely hate this feeling. I can't go back to sleep until he's safely back home. Being married to a firefighter can really stink at times.
Now I see he forgot his cell phone. He usually calls me when he's on his way back, but now he won't be able too. Good vibes please..............

Susie, I know exactly the anxiety you're feeling, my friend. When Eric leaves, even though he wears a bullet-proof vest, I get a twinge. And he forgets his cell I have no way of knowing. I always say quiet prayers and talk to the kitties. We miss him, if only for 1 shift.....but that's all it takes. Many nights I can't sleep until I hear his key in the door around morning. Then, peace. Then, I sleep. You are a wonderful wife and he knows this and feels you with him. It calms him, too.

I'm thankful that this is not a worry that I have. I don't know how the spouses of firefighters and cops hold it together. Many vibes and prayers, Susie -- you're both in my thoughts until he's home safe.

Thanks does stink, but it's the profession they love, and we have to beleive that God is watching over them..........

You are right, God is watching over Jerry, waiting to return him to your loving arms, please try not to worry, I know you will, but I had to say it

I know it isn't the same but Brandon works 40 minutes out of town, and well, our winters make the highway SCARY. I can't do anything if he is even a minute late, I freeze and clutch the phone. So in a way I understand~

Jerry will be home soon, cuddle up with TTP and try to relax

Thanks everyone........I don't worry about Jerry as much when he's on a regular shift. I guess I'm just busy and don't have as much time to worry. But when their fire dept gets called in for mutual aid in the middle of the night, that's when I DO have time to worry........doesn't happen often, but when it does, ugh! Thanks again for all the caring! Glad you guys were up! Time to start myday again............Is it Friday yet????
