Is anyone else just blown away that Thanksgiving is in four days? I can’t believe how this year has flown… and yet the 179 days without Ryan have dragged by… I know that the time remaining for us to be apart is short but at this point every day feels like an eternity!
I am so grateful for the change in plans… I can’t imagine if it had stayed JUNE! But… I’m about ready for this to be done… Do you realize that Ryan has missed 24.5 months of Isaac’s 42.5 months of life? That’s more than half of his life Ryan has missed and though I’m ever so grateful for the miracle of technology…
I’m ready to be HOME as a fully knit together family once more.
It’s been just shy of two weeks since my last post… almost three weeks since we got the news that we would be moving to Florida and would be apart for another six months.
I won’t lie, I’ve been pretty despondent. I miss my best friend, I miss who my boy is when Daddy is around, I miss my house and my pretty things, I miss my life. Six more months felt like a death sentence. When I finally gave it over to God and tried to find the silver lining I started to even out… but there was always this thought in the back of my head… “How am I going to do this?”
One week ago everything changed, again.
We got news (out of the blue on a Sunday afternoon) that we are now going to Schriever AFB in Colorado Springs (our dream assignment) and instead of June, we will be reunited in late December or early January!!!
I can honestly say that I did not see that coming!
God has blessed us greatly… I simply can not wait for this new adventure to begin.
It’s been one week since we learned the news of our extended separation and our move to Florida. I think we might just be okay. 😛
There is some chance that Ryan will be home closer to the end of February instead of the end of April but the decision rides on one man and he’s had it in hand since Monday… and so we wait.
I crave your prayers for calm, for answers, for favor, for sanity…
