Deployment Dreams

Earlier this week, I had a dream that I was deploying. One of my friends, who is active duty in real life, was deploying with me in my dream. It was our job to drive the convoy to Lexington, KY. I guess we were going to leave out from there. I was trying to get… Read More

We sat in the auditorium and waited for his… Read More

Family Ties

Spending time with family is very important to me….so much so that I hesitated when considering the military way of life with my husband. I had a fear of being thousands of miles away from family and not being able to stay in touch with them. I also had a fear of being pregnant in… Read More

Deployment Through a Child’s Eyes

I’m not the only one having adjustment issues with my husband being gone.  Our son is trying to wrap his little mind around this deployment too. About a week after Dear Hubby left, our son kept going in our guest room (my husband’s getaway).   This was unusual because our son hardly ever goes in… Read More

Relying On Others…

I walked out of the building where I dropped off my husband with mixed emotions.  I was feeling sad, but at the same time I was glad that this deployment was getting underway so that we could get it over with. Our son was holding my hand and jumping, just as happy as he could… Read More
