Amber from Goodnight Moon is doing a blog link up for deployment survivors. It's such a fun idea and everyone who links up gets to post about their deployment story and read others. Thanks Amber!! I LOVE your blog!
Here is the botton, be sure to grab it for your blog and post your deployment survivor story.
I don't have that one deployment story. Yes hubs has been deployed, several times actually. I turn into deployment mode each time. The first week I'm sad. Then I get over it and get on with it. My kids keep me ridiculously busy that the only time I notice hubs missing is in bed at night. I get sad but refuse to feel sorry for myself. I count down the days until he returns and dread when he tells me he has to go back. I don't like deployments at all...but I think we can all agree that the homecoming is *the* most amazing feeling. You can't really put it in to words and we all know, that no one will ever understand until they have gone through it too. To you fellow deployment survivors, you are AMAZING for your selflessness. It's a job that only a select few, amazing, brave, strong women can do. And Remember, at your next homecoming, say a prayer for all of those wives and families who werent able to get that welcome home hug.
