Again here I find myself sans husband...again
Ok I digress...I was given this opportunity last October to take this job in DC, and well I just couldn't turn it down, this was the second time in my life that DC came knocking on my door, and might I add, this is a great job too. I really like the people who I meet at work. Now before my hubby left for Korea it was understood that he could choose his next duty station, well it doesn't work that way now, and he is back at his previous duty station, and now here we are starting our next chapter in this book of life, and it has been very difficult. I do pray about it daily and I do thank GOD for waking me up, and letting me be with my children, but I do worry about us living separate lives. A military marriage always has something nagging it, field trainings, military schools, deployments, long hours at work, something that makes it harder than a civilian marriage. Our marriage is not like my co-workers, who see their spouses every morning and every night, who get home at a normal hour, it takes constant work. Again most of my military spouses understand that communication is sometimes missing, or not there, but you "milie" on because you know that one day your lives will be normal once again. I would like to say that I was married before 9-11 and it was like this the entire time before the wars started. My husband would be home 1 week out of the month, the rest of the time he was out in the field training, then it was NTC rotations or JRTC rotations...so I am used to it..I guess, but it is still hard...
praying for you and your family crystal! you work so hard on your career and your family and it's so hard to be apart from our men while they're gone!!! i wish we lived in the same town and could keep each other company. :-)ReplyDelete
