Ok... so my husband has been gone a grand total of 6 months and we still have about 10 months left. Yes, this blows! With that being said, people are just idiots. I can not tell you how many times I have been asked "Isn't that hard? I mean your husband being gone THAT long." REALLY... ARE YOU JOKING. Nope, not hard at all... he is just at war fighting for your freedom to be an idiot. I always try to muster some serious answer like, "Well he loves it and it's who we are" or "Yes maam it's extremely hard but I love him so much it's all worth it". Some days I want to lift their hand up and smack them with it and say uhh... DUH. I am sure that so much of it is not knowing what to say because they aren't used to our lifestyle but then just don't say anything. I have been asked if I am scared for him, people wonder why my husband is in Iraq if there is no more combat... I don't mind legit questions about our communication or his branch of service. I am so proud of him but good gracious people, think before you speak.
Ok... onto day 4
Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for
Sadly, I don't really feel like there is anyone in my life now or before that is pending forgiveness. As I said in a previous post, I forgive pretty easily. I honestly don't let many people know me though either. After BD and I adopted Diva most of my friends walked out of my life therefore it left a void but also one that I didn't care to replace. Since she came I tend to keep to my family more. The less I open up the less people can hurt me and therefore the less forgiveness I need to worry about.
