Pity Party

Alright there party people.  This is my first post in quite a long time I know!  We have had a whirlwind these last few months.  I keep meaning to post but it slips by the wayside.  But today I am taking a proverbial stand and posting on my blog.

But the post is really me whining.  Please bear with me.  I know you don't know me that well yet but I just want to let you know that my husband left for his first underway in three years.  He only be gone for 40 days but it seems like an eternity.  He will miss these last days of summer AND our oldest son's first day of kindegarten.  Plus, the thought of not having him home with us at the end of day sends me into tears every time it crosses my mind. Of course I know that I will get through this just as I have done before, just as millions of others have gone through it and survived.  And 40 days is just a drop in the bucket compared to those that deploy for months and years at a time.  But knowing that doesn't make it any easier. 

Thank you for listening to my whining.  I appreciate it. Here's hoping for a quick and safe return for my husband and all the other military members away from their families :)

I love you, Ryan!!

  1. My heart goes out to you. I am sure that it can't be easy. I know that he is coming back soon since I am commenting a month later, but living as a missionary kid and not overseas myself, I can understand that each time you are apart from those you love doesn't get easier. Thinking of you today...
