I hope I am not the only woman on this earth that sometimes forgets that not only am I a Mommy, but a Wife too. Or maybe it is just me!
I have been apart from my husband more than we have been together since we were engaged so maybe it's just different for me. When I became a Mother, my ENTIRE world changed. She became my #1 priority in life and my husband was deployed so I think I forgot how to be a wife. When he came home, we both had to re-adjust to our new life together and with only a few bumps in the road, we figured things out then . . . he left again. As I am preparing my house, my heart and my brain for yet another transition period, I am scared out of my mind. I have had some "Mommy time" to reflect, read and pray so that has settled my heart a little but I am back to not sleeping and my tummy is a complete mess. I get butterflies just thinking about wrapping my arms around my best friend, the love of my life and I CAN NOT WAIT!
I want to be that woman that he fell in love with, I am a Mother now and not much else has changed other than I have a smaller chest and waist size, my hair is darker and my patience level has drastically increased and I have also learned to love and be loved. I have to remember that my husband needs me too, emotionally, mentally and physically (even when I am exhausted) he needs me!
Please pray for us if you can. Nervous, excited and scared at the same time!
