I can't believe Mike will be home in TWO WEEKS!!!!! I am so excited at the thought of seeing him and squeezing him and bringing him home! It's all I think about!
This feels like such an accomplishment. It has been hard at times by myself, but the greatest thing I've discovered? That God has made me a strong and independent person. I've missed my husband... words can't even get close to describing how much... But I have thrived instead of curling up into a ball of self-pity like I imagined I would. There are only a few times that I really wished I had his help around the house or with the girls. Instead, the last eight and a half months have been spent missing his smile, his laugh, his touch, his humor, his company - I have missed all these things so much more than what he can do for me. I just miss HIM. The wonderful man I've loved for the last 18 years.
(And a bonus: he'll be here to celebrate our 10-year wedding anniversary coming up in June!)
Thanks to all of you for your constant prayers, support and love!!!
Please continue to pray for Mike's safe return. I can't wait to post homecoming pictures here and on Facebook... and finally get this blog off private status! Yay!
