When life hands you...

So Jon is gone. He left on January 2nd, our anniversary, to head down to Marine Combat Training or MCT at Camp Geiger in North Carolina. He actually almost missed the bus! We were so sure that we would have enough time when we started packing after he spent like 5 hours waiting at his recruiter's office for his orders to be faxed back! We were able to pack everything in one sea bag, his diddy bag, and garment bag. It made for easier carrying for him. So he called me when he got to the bus station in North Carolina on the 3rd and then ... nothing. I haven't heard from him since. So what I have been hearing is that once you don't hear from them down at MCT that means they have been picked up for training. So if he has been he will graduate on January 31st. Then on to MOS school in Virginia. This has been a nerve racking time as I feel I was completely unprepared. There's not a lot of information out there either. So I am waiting for Sunday because they supposedly get there phones on Sunday for liberty. So on top of all that my intercession class has started and I am so in over my head. Then to top it all off yesterday my car died. I mean completely just died. With all this being thrown at me I am so happy that when life throws you everything under the sun God throws you a shelter. God has covered me and calmed all my apprehensions and frustrations. He covers all. That and my little "Marine" corner at work helps to dispel the frustrations too!

  1. I don't know why I just always love reading military spouse questionnaires. I love how much we all seem to have in common. Is that weird? I agree that the separations stink and are even harder when you have no verbal contact!
