I'm sure my posts lately have been dull (and a little sparse), but with half of my world (and heart) on the other side of the planet, I'm having a hard time finding any words. That statement alone is a shocker to some, LOL -- Arlene? Speechless? Impossible! :P
I would be more than happy to take the easy way out and just post bunches and bunches of pictures filled with cute anecdotes about my little man -- who is growing faster than a weed! -- but my honey took the camera with him... there went that idea.
Note to military wives: It is a great idea to have two cameras!
At this point, I'm just trying to make it through each day without dissolving into a puddle of tears. Some days it's a lot harder than others. Some days, all I want to do is curl up into a little ball, hugging my knees tightly... and just stay there... until he's home.
But I can't. I have a household to run. I have a not-quite-two-year-old running around the apartment trying to figure out where his daddy went. I have to be both mommy and daddy for the next four months.
I can do it, but I'm learning, I can't do it on my own. I don't possess that sort of strength. But, I know Someone Who does.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Philippians 4:13 is fast becoming my motto during this time. Praise the Lord for great friends (both in "real life" and the blog world) and wonderful family who are continually checking in on me!
