Friday, January 9, 2009 its been a while.

I know its been a while since I posted last. the last couple months have been crazy, and its not let up yet. The Holidays were awesome. God blessed us so much over the Christmas season. I was sure it was going to be a crazy, stressful day. And while it was crazy, it was far from stressful. My hubby was able to spend alot of time with his brothers over the couple days before Christmas, which is some he rarely gets to do. Then Christmas day we were able to spend time with both of our families. I had been kind of sad about not being able to give my kids much this year but the Lord provided more than I could have imagined. So much so that alot of it got left in NC because we didnt have room to bring it home. It was hard to come back to VA and life here, but it had to be done so here we are.

This year is going to be a long one. We are looking at a deployment and two possibly three moves before the year is over with. The kids and I are planning on moving to NC while Josh is gone, we are looking for a house, hopefully we find something soon. It was a decision we didnt come to easily, but in the end he decided he wouldnt worry about us as much knowing we were close to family.
I'm not looking forward to his leaving, I hate this part of Navy life. Separations never get easier, no matter how many times you say goodbye. What even worse now, is abby is beginning to understand when daddy's gone. She asks about him, asks me every day if today is the day we get to go get daddy. I am praying that the Lord will open the door to a new chapter in our lives then end of this year.

My baby is turning 3 in less then 2 weeks. I cant believe she is 3 already. It amazes me that this little person, with all her personality was not so long ago my tiny little baby. Sometimes I just want to stop time so that i can keep her just this way forever, but I know it doesnt work that way, so I must enjoy this time while I can. That just makes me all the more thankful that I am a Stay at home mom. I dont have to miss anything.
