Military Wife--Everything Will Be Alright

Want to know what my day consisted of? either.

Imma tell you anyways. :) DSW, Charming Charlies, New York&Co, Sephora. Yep. Damage was done.  Why? Because I love to shop, but a more important reason I must say. More like a special occasion.  My husbands homecoming from a 10 month long deployment! 

Now I would like to tell you he will be home in a few days and he is back on US soil. Nah. Girls gotta prep. This one is prepping like 2 months in advance. I am getting antsy, nervous, hyped, excited, ecstatic, and super emotional. What us military wives go through is just plan crazy sometimes, but I LOVE IT! I get to feel crazy emotions that people don't go about having in "regular" day life. 

I get to go without speaking to my husband not even a text for weeks at a time and know how it feels to get seemingly sweet love letters. I get a rush from the mailman or going to the post office to send a package with dora stickers all over it with a toddler hanging on my hip.  I get to fall in love all over again when I will first set eyes on my hubby in "real" life not skype! 

There are so many different things I do day in and day out that "civilian" families will never experience.  I get to tackle independence! I know how to do simple maintenance on my car, dishwasher, laundry washer, and even know how to clean clogged shower drains.  ( SHHHH..Don't tell my husband I can do these things) 

I have come to find so much positive in all these so called negatives.  Don't get me wrong, some days are down right tough! I break down, I cry, and that's okay! I have my God and Savior to fall back on and always talk to throughout all of this crazy mess! I simply do not know what I would do with out His peace and grace. But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 AMEN!!
