So that Spouse o' Mine is gone for the time being. Gone, Down Under, down tramping in the Southern Hemisphere for several weeks.
adj.1. Being of a number more than two or three but not many:
OK. Let me tell you: several weeks to me means more than "many". Three weeks is a lot of weeks apart in our lives.
But then, I think of the Fort Riley and Fort Leavenworth families, who experience months, not weeks. They experience a year. Several times over. Sometimes over, and over, and over.
Anytime I think of missing that Spouse o' Mine, I halt. There are couples out there coping with "apart" which we will never experience.
Perspective in our world here in Kansas.
