What I'll Do Differently This Time Around

This page came together surprisingly quickly...


Journaling reads:

I'm going to admit it. Lately, I've been a big grump. :( As soon as Kevin got home from the last deployment, I started to worry about the next one. I let it take away my enjoyment of everything -- I slipped into a deep sadness. I can't go through another deployment like this. For the sake of my husband, my kids, and especially me, I'll remember how to be Happy.

That is beautiful! And I know what you mean- my husband will deploy again 11 months after he gets back- I'm already thinking about it, and he won't even be home for another 4 months!

What a wonderful page. I can't imagine what you go through when he is not there and what the anticipation of him leaving must be like.
