Truely Blessed

As I sit here in the quiet looking through our wedding pictures I am reminded how blessed I am to have such a wonderful man in my life. It has been just 2 1/2 months since Josh left for deployment and it seems like much longer. I miss him so! I know God is taking care of him and is using this time for His glory.

This is my first deployment and I just admire all the spouses out there who do this day in and day out for years and years. We need to pray for our military families who sign up for this life to defend our freedoms because they put so much on the line not just for their country but for their families, their children, their husbands/wives, everything. Military marriages are on the battle lines each and everyday and they need our prayers to join together to keep God first in their life and in their marriages.

My heart is just aching for military wives and husbands who are living this life. I was just listening to a song by Darius Rucker "It won't be like this for long". Read the words because it applies to each of us, just about life. Appreciate each moment you are in and remember "it won't be like this for long".

He didn't have to wake up
He'd been up all night
Layin’ there in bed listenin’
To his new born baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says
It gonna be OK

It won’t be like this for long
One day soon we'll look back laughin’
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby just hold on‘
Cause it won't be like this for long

Four years later ‘bout 4:30
She's crawling in their bed
And when he drops her off at preschool
She's clinging to his leg
The teacher peels her off of him
He says what can I do
She says now don't you worry
This’ll only last a week or two

It won’t be like this for long
One day soon you'll drop her off
And she won’t even know you're gone
This phase is gonna fly by
If you can just hold on
It won’t be like this for long

Some day soon she'll be a teenager
And at times he'll think she hates him
Then he'll walk her down the aisle
And he'll raise her veil
But right now she's up and cryin’
And the truth is that he don't mind
As he kisses her good night
And she says her prayers

He lays down there beside her‘
Til her eyes are finally closed
And just watchin’ her it breaks his heart
Cause he already knows

It won’t be like this for long
One day soon that little girl is gonna be
All grown up and gone
Yeah, this phase is gonna fly by
So, he's tryin’ to hold on‘

Cause it won’t be like this for long

It won’t be like this for long

Life is always eventful with 2 year old I woke up feeling relaxed, relieved and rejuvenated...I did not get that cup of coffee in the quietness of the morning but I did get it and it was just as nice. We ran errands today as well as a bite to eat with my friend Elizabeth at Torres Mexican restaurant. We helped set up for our MOM's Club Mega sale on Saturday from 8-12. I am excited about going through old clothes but then get sad knowing that my babies are growing up right before my eyes. I cherish every moment with them and look forward to another day to make a positive impact on their little lives.

This is short and sweet tonight...tired and need some rest for tomorrows big sale.

time to detox my body, my mind, & whatever else

I am searching for a healthy way of living and I feel my life, my body, my mind needs some detoxification. Yes I know this sounds crazy coming from me. I went to the library today to learn more about cleansing the body. Wow at the info that is out there and boy the toxic world we live in. My friend Sharon is starting to rub off on me as far as living more simple and looking at the world differently.

So, tonight I will drink some cleansing tea before I go to bed and start tomorrow fresh, read my bible, have my quiet time with God, have a cup of coffee in the quietness of the morning, oh how I hope this is what tomorrow brings.....

On another note, I miss my husband so much right now and look forward to hearing his voice everyday...those simple things in life that we all seems to take for granted; like a hug...a kiss...holding hands...that sweet smile...cuddling...I LOVE YOU Josh!
