I'm trying to focus on the other things I have going on this weekend. I have a Mary Kay marketing event on Sunday, I have to work at the Buckle on Saturday, and I have plans with friends on Friday. I am hoping that I will keep myself busy enough that I won't feel the void of Hubs being away. I thought I was facing the deployment head on. Turns out, I'm just really good at distracting myself and not thinking about the reality of the situation.
I recently started reading Nicole's Blog. She is a gifted writer and beautiful Christian woman. I've found comfort in the words she shares about the challenges of deployment. Her blog has been both a source of information as well as encouragement as Hubs and I head into this crazy year. Stop by her blog sometime. You won't regret it.
