The Day That Has Made Me Strong Again...

I have always been pretty independant... I thank my dad and Mike for that. They are the two men in my life that push me to want more... 

However.. I am a new, working mommy... and sometimes lost in the mix and playing catch up.. and in the middle of all of it ... I fall short and rely on Mike to help... 

for today Dec. 29. 2013 I become INDEPENDENT again...

We woke up early... the house was was quiet... the morning was filled with barks, baby crys, the sounds of bags packing and just a little past ten the sound of the clippers getting ready to give the standard military haircut. 

Just a few hours later.. lunch at panera.. and solid CYA LATER on base. I never cry in front of him.. I won't allow myself...for back in the day.. crying was not allowed every lady during the WWII era wanted to leave a solid imagine of themselves in their other half's head.. and that has always been my motto... I do however get in the car and drive off and once I hit a certain spot the tears always fall... my future will be different for awhile it will take some adjustment to be the long list of things that I need to be for my FAMILY!

... way different.. it will be filled with just me being mom, working, derby... and relying on a village to help raise my child.

I would be lying to you if I did not say I see tears in my future...... I do .. but they are tears of someone who is trying.. trying hard to be the best I can be at everything I am given in life.. 

May the next few months go by fast! May the continue to be blessed and may we be looked after..

    Every deployment is your "hot water", and every deployment, you get a little bit stronger.
