I’ve returned

Posted on: January 26, 2012

After another week off I am back.  And, I promise you, I will not be taking another break any time soon.  Life has been a bit hectic recently, hence the need for the breaks. But, things are getting back to normal and I am ready to blog and share what is going on in my life with each of you.

So, what exactly has been going on?  Well, I’ll tell you.  My husband is in the military and just returned home last week from a 6 month deployment over seas.  He had two months of training prior to the deployment, so he was gone a total of 8 months.  That’s 8 months I was home alone…without my husband…alone…with the baby…a single parent.  I have experienced being home alone when Tim was on a previous deployment and that deployment had its own challenges (my grandmother passed away while he was gone).  But, this deployment was difficult on a whole other level.  Being a single parent was, well, difficult, to say the least.  I now have a new respect for single parents.  But, that’s a post for another day…

Today I just wanted to share my joy with you.  The joy that my husband is FINALLY home and can now take part in experiencing the daily joy of raising our son and living our life together. 

*Stay tuned for my upcoming post on being a single parent. *

Yeah, great to see you back and that Tim is back also, you must be so so relieved to have him here with you and Giovanni 🙂 Let’s pray he doesn’t have to leave again like that anytime soon, like ever! Take care you guys

Thanks Ranay! We’re hoping he won’t be deployed again any time soon either. Keep praying for that!

So glad he’s home safe!

Thanks Christine!
