So thankful for phones and all the modern day communication devices we have! R and I got to talk for a very long time today. It was soooo nice!

Yesterday, I had a "woe is me, I miss my husband so much day." Ok, if your a military wife, you know what I'm talking about. There are two kinds of MW's......we either miss our husband's soooo much that we get rid of all things that remind us of him cause it hurts too much.....or we flood ourselves with everything about our husband cause we can't get enough. I tend to be the second.
I may or may not have sprayed my bedroom with his cologne and shut the door.....just so I could open it throughout my day and experience my husband's scent over and over. :-) and....I may or may not have made his favorite meal cause....well, it's his favorite meal. and....I may or may not have thought about throwing myself down the stairs in hopes that my leg would break and maybe he could come home early. Ok, I really didn't think that last one. Besides, I'm a wimp. lol.
In all seriousness though, I do miss my husband so much it hurts sometimes......but I am grateful he is safe....and I am grateful he is able to provide for our family so I don't have to work outside the home.....and I am grateful he is always so involved in our lives even being so many miles away. I am so blessed!

Thankful for my husband. Though the miles are many between....he still has this way of supporting me and making me feel special. God could not have picked a better husband for me!

Thankful Day 1

I am thankful for my Heavenly Father and my salvation found in Jesus Christ!

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6

Sometimes I'm so overwhelmed at how much He loves me!

Confession Time....

Confession # 1. I am not always successful (ok, never) at staying on a budget....especially when it comes to my grocery budget. (and my super hubby is a successful dave ramsey follower)

Confession # 2. I don't really like to ask for help. I think that is probably pretty typical of most military wives. We love the control and power we get from thinking we have it all together. So False!

Confession # 3. It's been really hard to get meals going and healthy while R is away.

Confession # 4. I really want to lose weight and focus on preparing healthy meals for myself and the kiddos.

I love to cook. I love to be creative, grocery shopping, and meal planning. BUT, it's been pretty hard since R has been gone. Not sure why, but I've heard it's not uncommon for military wives to struggle in these areas.
Sooo, today...I signed up for E-mealz. If you haven't heard of them, they are pretty great. They have lots of different meal plans to choose from (we chose gluten-free) and you can even choose what store you shop. (we chose wal-mart) AND, they stay on a budget. I'm pretty excited about it. It's pretty cost effective....$5 a month. I'll keep you updated!
