I have been thinking a lot about last November compared with this one. It was such a sad month for us. My husband deployed Thanksgiving day. He deployed about 365 days after he returned from his 15 month deployment. I just remember thinking that a whole year was such a long time. How would I make it through another deployment? But now here we are. The deployment is over, finished, no more. We are getting ready for block leave and after that we will head to Ft. Campbell. So many fun things coming up!
I am not sure how we got from Nov 2008 to Nov 2009 but we did it. We made it through the year. We are all stronger because of it. I really think deployments do make you stronger. They can be so hard, but when it is over it is such a great feeling 🙂
My parents were able to come to visit for most of January. That was awesome and I was glad I was able to celebrate turning 30 with them even if my husband had to miss it. In April I traveled to a few places and in May left for the US for about 3.5 months. Then got back in Sept and just kinda got ready for his return.
I feel like my life has been made up of so many different seasons. I am so looking forward to this new one…:)
