It's been a waiting game all week. Waiting for that phone call, waiting to get the rest of the homecoming items, waiting to see if the cakes I had made will make it to his arrival, waiting to drive to the airport to pick up my soldier. The waiting is KILLING me. Not to mention all the butterflies I've been having. You would think after doing this 4 times already I would be an old pro at it but it is always exciting to see your husband get off that plane and hug him again after being apart for so many months. Deployments always make us remember what we have and how far we have come all these years. Guess it's a curse and a blessing all wrapped in one.
celebration of him returning home to us. Our family is whole again. When this deployment is finally over I will do it even bigger then I just did for his R&R! Can't wait to be back in my husband's arms, even if it's only for 2 weeks. Will savor every moment with him. Sure does make you appreciate things when you know they're not always here to appreciate.
