Which is coming way to soon.
I go through spurts of wishing the time would slow down, a lot. And other times
when I wish it would just hurry up and get here so that we can get it over with.
There are many moments of frustration, sadness, happiness, and loneliness.
Anyway, here are my plans:
-to go on at least one more small bike ride with him
-to throw a huge cookout at our house with family and friends
-for him to be off work for a couple of weeks to be with me
(don't really know if that one is possible yet)
-to take advantage of every possible moment we have together
Here are my plans while he is gone:
-to save as much money as possible
-to pay off most of our debt
-to do some landscaping in our frontyard
-a girl weekend in Dallas with my mom and grandmothers
-a week long trip to see my cousin in Oregon
-to try to stay as busy as possible
(I'll be counting on a lot of you to help me with that one)
-keep my sanity
-work on my marriage and my own attitude, even while he is away
-pray for him continually
I am going to miss him so much. I recently bought "The 5 Love Languages",
a copy for me, and the Men's Edition for my husband. Our marriage needs so much work,
as I'm sure every marriage does. But it seems that ours is under more attack from Satan
because of all the time we spend apart. This past year we have spent at least 6 of
those months apart. And this next year will be 11-12 months apart.
So I ask that you pray for us. Pray for the husband, that he stays safe when away,
and that he comes home to me (I constantly worry about that). That he enjoys
his time seeing the world, and learns a lot while being gone.
Pray for me that I can stay busy, that I have peace while he is gone. That I don't find
myself feeling depressed.
Pray that nothing seriously goes wrong at home while he is gone, with the house, family,
Love you guys.
