Feeling Anxious (The Life and Times of a 4 Year Old)

He’s not feeling like himself today…

The uncertain schedule…

The…are they leaving…are they staying…

Another week here…

Another week there…

He is a creature of habit…

He likes what He likes…

 He even eats the same…

This uncertainty is making him anxious…

His stomach is in knots…

He can’t sleep at night…

He lays awake worried she won’t be there when he wakes…

At the end of 3 years of sea duty He’s going to have an ulcer. 

This is His reality…

So much pressure and He’s only 4…

  1. Beautiful.. As sailors we know it’s harder on our families that is is ourselves. We wear the uniform, but they make the sacrifice. He will make it through sea duty…he will be 7 then…. and after about 3 years of shore duty, he will be ready for you to go back to sea. And he will still miss you just as much….
