So I had my first post all written out and my computer reset. Lame computer. So the reason I am creating my blog is first for my kids, because I am not a journaler...and also for our family and friends. I love reading my families and friends blogs so hopefully you will enjoy ours too. So here goes my first blogging experience.
So the last couple of months have been a whirlwind for us. Sam graduated from Law School and we headed to Kansas for our first JAG assignment with the Air Force. Two weeks after we arrived here Sam found out he had to go to training for 2 months. That left us in a new environment with not really knowing to many people. I was pretty bitter about the fact that we didn't have any friends...Keely was going to be starting Kindergarten and Weiland was going through his terrible twos. Plus on top of that we had to miss out on our family vacation so we could get some stuff unpacked before he left. As you can imagine it was a little difficult for me to swallow.
Well, as I look back on these past couple of months and reflect on the time I had by myself with my kids...I realize how strong of a person I can be when I truly put my mind to it. Despite the couple of weeks of heart palpations, lack of sleep from being in a new house, wishing that I could not be a mother except when my children were sleeping, and missing my husband I wouldn't change the fact that he had to leave. I am stronger because of it and am proud of the things that I accomplished and realize the person that I want to be. To those of you who will or have to do life without a spouse at times..remember that the Lord will help you through anything. You just have to turn to him ,which is sometimes hard,but well worth the effort.
