Case in point.......in February of this year (a month before i was due home) my husband found out he was deploying to Afghanistan and would be leaving BEFORE i returned home. Of course i am pissed at the AF.....but seriously we have to be thankful. Since this recession has started millions of people are being laid off their jobs....my husband and I have had the opportunity to travel and work in another country and make a good chunk of money for our future. I do miss him like crazy. I am hurt that the AF didn't at least let him stay long enough to see me come in. But i was able to take leave last week and go see him in New Jersey before he deployed. It was a good visit.
We as a country have to come together to find the flowers among the weeds. Everyday is a struggle for me to find the good things, but it could be worse. I could be back in Iraq, wearing PT gear or ABU's, eating DFAC food, working everyday with no days off, praying every night that a mortar won't hit my CHU tonight so i can make it home alive.
So when i get lemons, i need to make lemonade!!!!
