Hi everyone!! Well since this is my first official blog I guess I will start by telling you a little bit about myself....My name is Brittney and I am married to a wonderful man serving in the U.S. Navy. Isaiah is my soul mate, my best friend and my puzzle piece. He understands me unlike anyone else and I am missing him more and more each day that we are apart. I started this blog as a way to help me get through the trials, frustrations, and everyday life of being a Navy wife!! We are currently going through Isaiah's first deployment overseas and all I can say so far is that its definitely a new experience!!! Being separated for so long takes a toll on any marriage but thankfully the Lord has been with us every step of the way. Although it is stressful, frightening and exasperating at times, I feel as though it is all part of God's plan for our lives and something he will help us get through together!! One thing I can say for sure is that when you are separated from the person you love, so many things come into perspective...this separation has opened my eyes and shown me how much my husband truly does mean to me. It has definitely made me appreciate and love my husband even more and made us stronger as a couple, and for that I am very thankful to the Lord. It has also shown me what little control over my life I do have, and dealing with and accepting that is a whole other story!! :) But for now I am doing pretty well and trying to remain positive and faithful in the Lord. Isaiah has been gone since March 3rd so as of today we have been separated for 1 month and 5 days and I haven't lost my mind yet!! lol its a miracle!! :) Anyways he is expected to return home sometime in mid August or early September so I am waiting (impatiently) for him to return home and for us to finally move from California to Virginia where we will be stationed for the next three years!! I can't wait for this adventure in our lives to begin and to experience living in a new place on the complete opposite side of the country, not to mention being able to actually live with my husband and sleep in the same bed!!! haha I know it doesn't sound like much but to me its my dream come true and any military wife knows exactly what I mean!!! Well thanks for listening and I will keep you all updated on the deployment and my everyday life!! Have a wonderful and Blessed day!!
