Finally Over

 i am glad this deployment is finally over. it wasnt a long one by any means but it was our first and therefore it felt like an eternity. over the course of these past four months i have felt many different feelings. when he first left i felt like my heart was ripped out of my chest - i felt like i was going to die. i cried and cried and cried. i didnt think i could handle it. but i did. i am suprised to see just how brave and strong i am. i figure if my husband is going to be brave - i have to be brave too. and i was and i survived through the toughest, most depressing days. it just kind of makes me sick to think how its inevitable that he is going to go again. it really makes me sick. because next time will be for a year. i cant imagine not holding him for one whole year. i wish there was something i could do to change this, but i cant obviously. 

i am just very proud of my husband. and i am thankful he is back home with me. i love him so much i cant even explain.

hah yea it was a quick one, this time. it went by kind of fast but felt long. it was weird. but all i can say is i am glad he is home and safe. that is all i can ask for

jeeez that was quick haha although I know for you it didnt seem like it. We got another 4 months to go

Thank God for the folks at home. They make our journey livable.

It's bitter sweet isn't it?My husband has been deployed since last August and we still have 3 MONTHS TO GO. Don't worry yourself about another longer deployment right now, cross that brigde when you get there! Be sure to take advantage of the time you have with him now, and enjoy every second of it! SO HAPPY FOR YOU THAT HE IS HOME AND SO PROUD OF YOU FOR BEING SO STRONG!
