Living life on the edge of your seat!

Everything has been so much more exciting since Jon enlisted. It started with MEPS and waiting for his dependent waiver to be approved. Then waiting to see when his ship date would be. Finding out that he was actually going to leave 5 months early to surviving 13 weeks on just letters. And more recently living through 29 days with no contact and now being able to talk to him every day. Everything that has been thrown at him he has met and i am so proud of him. I now realize what the saying "living life on the edge of your seat" truly means. I have been on the edge of my seat for every letter, phone call, and change of plans. So now we are waiting to get his RA (recruiter's assistance) approved so he can come home before his class starts on March 12th. I am finding that taking each day one step at a time and not getting so stuck in your own plans is the best thing for your sanity! It's so amazing to see God work not only in my life but the life of my family. We are loving every minute of it. So much can be said of reliance. I have learned it is not a dirty word but just another tool in God's toolbox to make me the wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, and person He wants me to be. So bring it on I can't wait to see what up next. I'm even sitting on the edge of my seat for the ride!
