Happy Wednesday!

I love Wednesdays because somehow knowing the week is half way over already gives me the hope and strength I need to keep going each day. Then soon enough the weekend appears and it is one more week of deployment down! :-) 

This week marks 4 months that my hubby has been deployed and I am so excited!! 

Even though we're only about a third of the way done I keep telling myself that if the next 4 months go by as fast as the first four then we will already be eight months in and almost in the home stretch! Then before I know it, next year will be right around the corner and my hubby will be home! ♥

I'm trying to keep up this positive attitude and stay extremely busy so the days fly by. Thank you everyone for all your kind words and support you left on this post.  

I was having a rough weekend to say the least, and it was one of those situations where thing after thing kept going wrong. I realize now that I have to get back up when I fall down, and pick up the pieces of my life. 

It's not always easy but I know if I persevere then it will all be worth it when my husband and I kiss each other for the first time in 11 months on the pier at homecoming. That is what my heart is waiting for. ♥

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!



  1. Brittney, you are so much stronger than you even realize. Don't beat yourself up about momentary lapses of sadness. You are completely entitled!!! But remember they are only momentary. Allow yourself to feel the sadness instead of forcing yourself to get over it because otherwise that's how resentment builds. Hang in there hun! You're always in my thoughts!

  2. Congratulations on four months down! That's no easy feat! You will rock the rest of this deployment- I know you will. Big hugs!

  3. 4 months!!! WOO!!! We got this girl, may need my good friend Jack Daniels to help me out, but we got this! Haha And I am dreaming of that kiss on the pier...homecoming will be so amazing after 11 months!

  4. I love Wednesday for that same reason! Hope the rest of the week is better for you!

  5. You are so cute! I am sorry to hear you had a rough weekend but you have a great attitude, keep it up! Yay for 4 months down!!

  6. So glad to hear you are doing better. We have our days. You will make it!
