Conflicting Emotions

This morning has been a giant emotional roller coaster. My mom left today and headed home. While we had an amazing time, I feel it went by way too fast. I hate that I live so far away from my family and that seeing them once a year (or longer) is the way it's going to be while living the military life. Thank goodness for Skype. I know this visit is what both of us really needed and I'm very thankful it worked out so she could come! When I came home after dropping her off at the airport, I cried like a baby. I already miss her like crazy! So sad she left, but there are things happening very soon to look forward too, and that's what I need to focus on.

Things that I'm looking forward too:

~Tea Party on Tuesday with some of my favorite girls

~Joseph coming home from 6 month deployment in less than a week

~Date Night



Please pray for safe trips for my mom and hubby to arrive safely home :)



  1. I am so glad that your hubby will be back in less than a week!
    Sorry your mom left, but I am glad you both could spend some time together! :)
    Thinking of you!

  2. I'm in complete awe of your grace and attitude while Joseph's been away, and am so happy that the time has come for his reunion with you and the kids! Keep looking forward to the moments that bring happiness! First thing... TEA PARTY! Shall I bring a little something to spike the tea with? :)

  3. big bear hug coming your way! loves!!


  4. sending muchos hugs, from here to there, i miss and love you.

  5. I am so glad that your mom was able to come visit. I wish she could have stayed longer. I know you and your mom always have a blast when she is around. I cant tell you how happy I am to be finally coming home. I have missed you so much and I cant wait to finally hold you in my arms again! We will definately have a date night when I get home. Love you and see you soon.

  6. * thinking of you *

    I live across the country from my mom (and my entire family) so I totally know how you feel. It's hard. If I'm lucky, I get to see them once a year.
