wow…amazingly original title…ha! No I’m just tired and can’t think of anything better. Russ has been home for almost 2 weeks now!! (If you haven’t already, make your way over to the HOMECOMING page for some more details and pictures.) I’m just going to *attempt* to put the emotions of the last two weeks into … [Read more…]
I am kind of laughing at myself right now…it’s amazing how we can see the circumstances around us and long for something better or easier. Then, once we get there, we do the very same thing. Two weeks ago, I was at a point with both my husband and this deployment where I was just … [Read more…]
My newest song…all glory goes to God!!

God works in strange ways many times. This is actually the second time I have written this post, but the first time got deleted. I was immediately filled with frustration when all that work disappeared, but now I’m looking at it as a new opportunity to maybe approach this post in a way I didn’t … [Read more…]
Today is April 1st… When most people think of April 1st, they think of April fools. But my first thoughts of April 1st are that it is the first day of a new month, which means only 2-3 months til my husband comes home from Afghanistan! Homecoming has got to be the most wonderful part … [Read more…]
I could have named this post a lot of different titles…some of the others I was thinking of were “A Date Alone” and “Life is What You Make It”…but I’m sticking with this one for now. I pretty much spent all of the day in the house, not because I intentionally wanted to or enjoyed … [Read more…]
I’ve been a wifey for a year now. Tomorrow is our first anniversary! It’s weird to me…(I know, a strange way to begin a blog post about an anniversary)…but it’s true. Because I don’t feel like I’ve been married for a whole year. Russ and I have spent 4 months and 22 days of that … [Read more…]
If anyone desires to know more about what Army life is really like, I would recommend standing in line for a half hour at the on-post post office. What you can learn there will give you more insight than even possibly the most well-written book on the subject. I knew when I drove into the … [Read more…]
Where do I begin? In the last 3 days I’ve gone from absolutely loving today, to absolutely hating it. Let me explain… On Thursday, I went to HEB to grab some groceries really quick for dinner. It was like paradise! Balloons, roses, chocolate, strawberries, and hearts were EVERYWHERE!!! I instantly became a pile of melty … [Read more…]
When I hear the word four, I think of so many things. Four can be an eternity, or the blink of an eye. Four more months (maybe) until hubby comes home. We still aren’t for sure, but it’s what I’m holding onto. This four seems like an eternity. Russ and I are both worn thin. … [Read more…]
God has been doing some marvelous things in my life, and teaching me some lessons, but he has used the medium of “change” to do so.
Our life is full of change. It seems like Russell’s schedule is like a ping-pong game. Back and forth. But what I’ve learned about ping-pong is that, even when the ball lands on the same side of the table, it will rarely land in the same place twice. And every time the player has to … [Read more…]
