Happy Thoughts:


Be Patient...

  "Be patient and be strong; someday this pain will be useful to you."
After reading through this post I realized it's really random so bare with me...
Someone posted this quote earlier, and I thought it fit how I was feeling perfectly. No matter what, you gotta just keep pushing through, and everything will be okay in the end. If you haven't already guessed, I had kind of a rough day. Days like these I just wanna hide under the covers and not come out. Now the day is over, and thankfully it's time for bed. Tomorrow is a new day, and will be a much better one! I'm expecting a package from him any day now & I can't wait to get it! It's full of goodies he has bought me so far on Deployment, and I have no clue what any of it is because he won't tell me! So I'll definitely post about it when it finally comes. 
On a better note, some of you may remember when I posted about holding an auction for my friend Kevin who needs a kidney transplant. The auction is over now and I am happy to say we completely exceeded my goals and raised nearly $2,300 to go toward his medical expenses!  and on another good note, we have passed our halfway point of deployment and my donut of misery is now looking a little less miserable! I am so excited to start planning for that day, it's going to be one of the happiest days of my life! I already have a dress picked out, I'm convinced it's way to early for that, but I couldn't help it.  I have a photographer set up already too! It's going to be such a fun day [: I just keep dreaming of running into his arms. 


  1. Wow, congrats on the money you raised!! :)

  2. Thank you for the quote, I really needed to hear that. I have been having a rough time myself lately.
    Happy to hear you are over the half-way point! Hang in there! :)

  3. I totally understand. I dated a deployed soldier for quite some time and it is the lonliest, most frustrating thing ever! I LIVED for the letter I'd get in the mail or for checking my email first thing in the morning and my Inbox said (1).

    You just cherish the moments you do get and know that you'll be back together soon.

  4. new follower here, been reading for a few days but this post made me want to reach out and comment. Hang in there, deployments are rough but they all come to an end eventually ;). On a lighter note I really enjoy your blog
