     It's been kind of tough around here lately.  I'm adjusting to working full time.  And even though I love my job, it's tough to keep everything running smoothly while spending less time at home.  On top of my heavier work load Joey has been away training significantly more than he's been home lately.  It feels like deployment and its a constant reminder that deployment number 2 is just around the corner.  I keep telling myself that it will be okay and I'm strong.  But I couldn't feel more weak than I do right now.  Instead of letting myself sulk away, I've decided to focus on the things that I'm grateful for.  As a reminder that not everything is bad and stressful (even if it feels that way)

  • I'm grateful for my adorable dogs. Who never always make me smile. 
  • I'm grateful for our home.  A space all ours and all about us. 
  • I'm grateful for the beach, and the wonderful effect it has on me. I spent my Saturday reading on the beach, just relaxing and reminding myself that I'm okay alone.
  • And I'm grateful for the wonderful friends I've gained here.  The ones that understand exactly what I'm going through and know exactly what to do and say. 
  • More than anything I'm grateful for my husband.  My Joey.  I'm so unbelievably blessed to get to share my life with my best friend.  And even though we have to spend time apart I know that after we will be that much stronger.
