Default 3 years, it's been 3 years since he got arrested.

It's been 3 years since he got arrested. We had a visit today. It's truly a bittersweet anniversary. There are moments where I can still feel all the anger and fear I had, then to see the man he has become is amazing.

I cant believe how fast time really does move. My head space is completely different than it was 3 years ago. The anxiety, the worry, the embarrassment to now just going with the flow and extremely proud of him.

We are still waiting to find out when he will be released. We are hoping between now and May of next year. We try not to focus on time, but we can feel it's coming.

During visit, the weight of the time is getting to him. He never thought he would be gone this long. The guilt and embarrassment on his end is still there. He doesnt see the silver lining as clearly as I do. This was a necessary evil.

Thank you for all the support over the years. I didn't think 3 years later I would still be here posting. I sure didnt think I would learn that much about prison and all the ins and outside that go with it.

May God bless you and your families

Wow I love your post. I admire your strength. It is not as long as it has been and before you know it he will be back home. Hopefully it will be soon so you can continue to live life with your significant other.

Thank you! He is technically at the half way point. He actually thought he was away even longer. They seem to round up in there...lol he thought it was 4 years already and hated to break it to him that he was starting his 4th year. Regardless to him it feels like forever. I think those with longer sentences, accept this time differently. He truly hasn't. He deserved to get punished, but not for as long as he got.

He is still waiting on work release. His application is still pending as of 2 days ago. Then merit release next year. The in between time is hard because it is just doing time. I call it ground hogs day. His counselor told him to keep doing what he is doing and he should be good. So we just pray.

He still doesnt understand how I have accepted all of this. I dont see the reason to fight against what is. It is what it is until it is no longer, then we begin again.

This too shall pass. I have a tad bit of visit blues. I hate leaving him. He was hoping I would have changed my mid and stayed another night bc there is a visit tomorrow, but it is too expensive. He is 7 hours away. I cant just up and go back.

I just pray for good news sooner than later.
