Jerk Face. Yup I said it. A jerk face. Here I am moaning on about how I miss my husband and how much being away from him stinks and you know what, there are tons (like bazillions) of lovely military wives out there dealing with their hublets on deployment. And what am I complaining about? Stupid Basic Training. Yep I don't get to talk to him except for maybe a letter a week, but he is safe. He is not in another country, he is a few states away.
In the giant scheme of things I really should be counting my blessings. And trust me I am. But let me tell you, those wives are the ones who are amazing. They are the ones who I look up to. And one day I will be one of them. But right now, my prayers go out to the wives of men who are serving our country. May their hubbies be safe. May they come home quickly. Lord please bless them. And comfort them. Thank you Lord!!!
Here is my verse of the day: Hope in the Lord; for with the Lord there is unfailing love. Psalm 130:7
I am always failing the expectations I have for myself when it comes to loving others. From the love that I show my hublet, to the love that I show my friends or family. I am falling short of being the loving person I want to be. But I am thankful that God is perfect. And because of him, I can try again every day. Woo Hoo!!!
Oh and P.S. Another place I fail at is taking pictures. Do you know that I took my camera in to watch my hubs get sworn in and I DID NOT TAKE A SINGLE PICTURE?!?!?! I suck.
