Dates and Times

We finally have the information I have wanted for the last eight months. I know when Daddy will fly into the nearby city. The deployment is almost over but it really takes weeks or months for our family to recover from so much time apart.

We have tried to keep our "lifestyle" while He was on the other side of the world. It is really hard. I am naturally submissive and like to follow Him but when He deploys I have to take over so many of His normal roles. I have spent eight months doing the things that normally fall on His shoulders. I did what I wanted, when I wanted and did not wait for permission or for His blessings. I have to hand back over all of my freedom when Daddy gets off the plane. It will be an adjustment....I think that is just a nice way to say hell. It takes a lot of pushing and pulling and shaping to get everything to fit again.

Our relationship will never be what it was before He left. We are not the same people we were when we kissed goodbye. We can't go back. Once all our pieces are put back together I do feel we will be stronger and better than before.

    1. I can be hard to put it all together again but, for the first time ever, we will have a few days alone. I really hope it helps us reconnect with each other.

  3. You have done such an amazing job. It's so hard when they deploy. I am so happy for you guys that he is coming home. Stronger and better, I agree with that also - and so many exciting changes coming, yes? Time for a new chapter, and you will kick butt it at like you did the last one, because you rock. :) xx

    1. Thank You! I am so ready for the next part of our lives. We have wanted this move for years and it is hard to believe that we are less than a month out.
