The dreaded D word

That nasty word that no military wife likes...Deployment. Ours has officially started. Blah, I don't even really know what to think about it. I'm still pretty numb at this point. I'm no new girl at this military thing. I'm an old salty Navy wife. I've been there done that a time or two. But deployments still suck. This deployment however is different. This time we have 2 more kids then we did last time. So I can't just lay in bed and cry my eyes out. I have 3 kids to stay strong for and a house that will crumble on top of me if I show weakness. I'm hoping that with the kids and all their activities I'm so busy time just flies. That's my hope anyway. I'm pretty sure I'm going to have days where it's just going to be a struggle to keep my chin up. I found this quote on Pintrest that I thought fit perfectly and could envision my mother saying to me.

Something about this quote just makes me smile. So I'll remember it when I'm having one of those days. I'm excited to start sending care packages. Those are always a lot of fun to put together. This time I'll have the kids to help so that will be fun and less work for me lol.
