Two Weeks!!!!

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!

Chills and tears for you, the girls and Mike!! You are such a strong, caring and beautiful friend and I am so happy that it's now only two weeks away. I remember the summer when you all started dating...we would all hang out at the pool in LaGrange. Can't wait to see pictures of the girls when they get to see their daddy!!

Thoughts and prayers are still being sent your way and Mike's way.

God Bless!

I cannot believe it is almost time for Mike to come home. Caden has been hearing me talk to Nick about Mike's homecoming and he started making him a card. He enjoys writing notes and coring pictures, so in a few days you should receive a special card for Mike that Caden made in the mail. Everyone is right, you are an independent, strong beautiful mom, inside and out! I am thankful your strength with God and many prayers has helped you along the way. Mike and your girls are so blessed to have you ( :
