She's a Military Wife

A woman for all seasons
A woman for today
She grows to meet the challenges
And grows along the way

Her life is not an easy one
With many loads to bear
But she proudly serves her husband
And the uniform he wears

Although she didn't take the oath
To preserve democracy
She's there each day on the home front
To keep our country free

She's foreign-born or a country girl
Diversity you will find
But to be an army wife
It takes a special kind

She's one who keeps on going
Through adversity and pain
She's the steady, strong foundation
When nothing stays the same

She the one who sheds a tear
As Old Glory passes by
But couldn't give an answer
If you were to ask her why

Throughout the years, she marches on
Through tears and joy and strife
She's America's unsung hero -
She's A Military Wife!!

Oh my! I forgot to tell you...

Well, it's been a while since I've updated...again. Sorry =) Things have been a little hectic around here. I mean, I should be use to that. Welcome to Army life, right? School's going full-force and Noah's growing at the speed of light. New things for him every day, which includes new things for mommy to correct...every day. however, I love my job. He's an amazing child.

Today is day number 219. It seemed never ending...(and tonight, it still seems never ending) BUUUUUUT!! R&R happened a lot sooner for us then I planned. But DH (darling husband) had it all planned out! March 9 was a great night!

Here's the story:
The night prior, three great friends came to help me organize my big closet. That was so sweet of them! But after we were done organizing that closet, they kept asking if there was anything else they could help with. They kept insisting (which again, was super nice of them, I love my friends). But I couldn't understand why. Well, little did I know, my amazing husband had it set up that he would surprise me on his R&R.
I was sitting on my bed with my laptop at about 630pm and Noah was watching his movie. All the sudden, I turned around and Adam was standing in the bedroom doorway. My face went pale and I just stared at him as if I saw a ghost. Then I jumped up, crying and kissed him (after I said..."WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?!"). It was absolutely the best surprise of my life. Noah was shocked and surprised. He looked at DH and said, "Dadda?" It was wonderful! Little did I know, he told all of my friends and family...everyone knew!

Thank you, husband for an amazing surprise and I cannot WAIT until homecoming!

Dear Lord, please keep him and all of his brothers/sisters that are beside him safe <3 Amen.
