my heart is over flowing.

just so you know,
i'm not blogging.
contrary to what this may look like.
but i'm AM,
just peeking in just to show you something
AmAzInG.
(you better click that link or else!)
right there.
and all of the other 1209218392849034 kajillion people
who have prayed for my family,
bought or made us dinner,
made us laugh,
watched my kids,
brought me treats,
checked in on me through texts, msg's, or phone calls,
played "dad",
sent packages to my Lover,
sent me sweet cards and letters,
and much much more.
all those people who have done things
to make life just THAT much easier.
to keep our minds away from sad things.
those people,
are what helped me through this deployment.
i love you.
you know who you are.
the countdown is on friends.
it. is. ON.
(no i mean it. like literally. it will be.)
wish me luck.
oh.
and a good hair day.
*wink*
and if you're lucky,
i might have
an ExTrAOrDiNaRy slide show
for you
to recap the reunion greatness.
!!OoOOoOooOoOO!!

Wow, that is AMAZING and so adorable!! What a great friend! (Okay, now I feel like an even crappier friend for not being so awesome and just getting caught up in my own "stuff"...)

I don't know you (other than from this blog) and you don't know me (don't have a cool blog to follow) but I was just thinking of you and thought you might like this song...

I promise it is safe to read. It is called "She" hope you like it. and hope your husbands homecoming is amazing and that you can transition back fast.

Brooke said...

BTW...miss your posts! They make me smile inside. Makes my day that much more fun (being a stay at home MORMON mom and all). Hope you come back soon.

That is amazing! I LOVE that necklace. What a nice person to do that in honor of you! You should be honored for what you have accomplished. You are awesome! I'm so glad that you and Austin have been reunited and I wish I could be a fly on the way when your whole family will be reunited...it gives me chills just thinking of it! All the best!
