The joy of deployments ending and families being reunited

A friend of mine had the chance to welcome home her husband today. He left for deployment BEFORE their baby girl was born. Today she got to meet her daddy for the first time. She spent 6 months without her husband, and she is helping me get through my 6 months without mine. I fell such joy in my heart for this tiny family- cause there is nothing better than being together. To all the families that have had to welcome home a husband, wife, brother, sister, mom, dad, son, or daughter..... make sure its an amazing welcome home. Let them know how much you missed them. Show them how much you love them. I will be able to experience welcoming home my husband in 4ish months and that will be a joyful day.

Cause I have a beautiful baby boy counting on me and an amazing husband counting on me... God give me strength to take on these mountains... I need help hiking over them.

The love of a father...

Even from across an ocean daddy can calm his son. Just the voice of John caused his son to stop crying. John is such a great daddy. That is all I have to say....

I have two people in my life that fill my heart with such joy. My husband and my son. I am completely in love with them both. When my husband left, I finally realized how much I REALLY loved him. I also realized how involved he was in my every day life. The simple things, like taking out the trash- since we had been in the apartment, I had not taken the trash out once... Simply holding his hand during a movie- didn't even realize how much I liked that until he was gone... I realized I took his love and kindness for granted- and I will never do that again. I plan to shower him with love and kindness and affection, just like I always have- but multiply it by a billion. As for our son, I loved him when I was pregnant- but it wasnt until I saw my husband holding him for the first time, I wanted to cry and laugh and well my emotions were everywhere. When I became a wife- I learned a new love, and when I became a mom I learned yet another new love. what do I mean by this? Well, I love my parents, but the love I have for my husband and son are different.
I tell you what, my love for these two amazing men grows stronger everyday. Everyday my husband is gone, my love for him grows deeper, and every time I hold our son, my love gets deeper. Remember to tell those that you love, that you love them.
