One Week-warning may offend

In the last week our world has been ROCKED!

A deployment, a death, and lots of sickness...so we have had tears, sleepless nights, more tears, stress about having everything prepared and have I mentioned tears.

I have had some amazing woman come behind me and give me the lift that you sometimes need.  I have also had the tears of a bestfriend, to help me remember that I am not in this alone.

But then there are those who have said things such as, "Why are you so surprised?" "You knew this would happen." and "Why is he in the Air Force anyway?"
NONE OF THESE ARE HELPFUL SO PLEASE KEEP THEM TO YOURSELF!
Yes, we are very aware this happens!  We are surprised because you would be too if you found out your spouse was headed to a war zone!  Lastly he is in the Air Force serving for your freedom and so you don't have to!

One of my amazing friends pointed me to a blog that puts a lot of my fears, hopes and realities into words better than I can...Please check it out here.
