Happy Ressurection

Happy Resurrection,

Today was a very important day for all of the Jesus Freaks out there...  Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rose again on the 3rd day... Thank you Lord!

I am so excited to start this blog, I have so much that I would like to share with the world as the spouse of a Marine. There is so much that goes on in our life and if I can help even one spouse then my job here in the blog world is considered complete. :)

Today the girls and I were alone for Easter, the hubb’s is away doing some intense training and we miss him dearly. He is dong really well as graduation is swiftly approaching in 2 weeks.   I am so happy that I will have my best friend back. I miss him so much and whenever he is away I can truly say I am a much different individual.  I have yet to learn to completely live without him.  But I do understand the duty of the Marine Corps so I am happy to allow him to do his part in serving our country as I do my part in serving him...

We have so many different events coming up in our life in the following months... We are relocating overseas and I am happy and a bit apprehensive about the whole move... I have so many things going on in my mind about the move and I think I am just holding it all in as I have no one to tell because my best friend is still away.  But not to worry as soon as he returns I will begin to pour it all out. Lol!

It will go a little bit like this... Welcome home honey... So yeah, I am not sure how I feel about the move to Japan that we are embarking upon. Like I have my training career here that I have built from the ground up , I have such a good church here, my mind just got settled and oh yeah the girls... They are just adjusting to their new school and environment and we are due to TMO May 16?! Boots due to hit soil June 4th... This is all so much and we just got you back home... And oh did u say you will have to deploy less then 3 months after we arrive AGAIN!!! So you are basically saying honey I am picking you guys up from here to drop you off over there.... And don’t worry it’s a foreign country but I will be back in 6-8 months. 

Hummm... Now that it’s out of my system... I will start packing, as this is my reality and it has been for the last 10 yrs of being married to this Marine.  Just as he lace his boots I will lace my boots... When he put on his pack, I will put on my pack and we will hump, walk, and run side by side. This is what I signed up for. It is not always easy but why would taking care of the world’s best be uncomplicated, effortless or undemanding?!

All you need while he is away is Honor, Courage and most importantly... Commitment. Through the hard and the good. If you posses these attributes you will make it along your journey...

Nice to meet you all... Some will read my blogs and take them completely out of context as others will know exactly what it is I am trying to convey... All I can say is I am who I am, and I am VERY proud of it.  I’ve learned that it is not about what you’ve done but what’s been done for you. It is not about where you’ve been. But where your brokenness brings you to... I will not always be politically correct throughout this blog and I will not always use perfect grammar or English for that matter.  But to the ones that are easily offended by such, pls excuse me in advance. :)

  2. Although I am not married to a Marine I was one and as told early on in training, once a marine always a marine.It is spouses like you who make being away a little easier, to know that there is an outlet for the commited men and woman of those serving our country unselfishly. Puts a little bit of hope back in military marriage you are an example to all who serve with the men and woman who serve and together we serve. thank you.Kenya Collins
