Welcome May!

May 10, 2016

It is finally May y’all! I am so excited! We are officially 3 months down in this deployment. That is 1/3rd of the way there. I have made a lot of new acquaintances ( hopefully I can call them friends soon)  this past few weeks. I had a really bad break down and I just reached out to the other women that have men deployed with Michael. They were all so sweet and kind to me. We chatted in a group on Facebook and also a few of them sent me private messages to chat. I am wanting to make a trip back to base soon so that I can meet them all. I don’t think I would have made it through that break down without them personally. I wish there was some way I could thank them. Saying thank you doesn’t feel like it is enough ya know?

Besides my break down I am doing alright. I am staying busy with reviewing products, writing to y’all, and looking for a job. Mine and Michael’s 1 year anniversary was on the 6th. We didn’t do much since we are so far away. We talked on the phone for  few hours and ended up falling asleep together on the phone. That is about it. I am fine with that though. We can make up for that when we are together again in each others arms. That day is going to be one of the happiest days of my life!  Things will definitely be a lot better once Michael is home. My future has a bright side when it comes to him being in it for sure. I can’t believe we have been together for 1 year already. It doesn’t seem like it has been that ling just yet. I feel like it has only been like maybe 6 months. I guess it really is true that time fly’s when your having fun!

I love y’all and thank you so much for all your support and kinds words. It really means a lot to me. I will be back soon with another post so keep an eye out for that! Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog and go follow me on all my social media. My name is StayStrongTrish!

    Keeping busy is key to staying sane in any long-distance relationship, especially half way across the world! You can do it! 😀

      I agree Niki! It is hard to stay busy all the time though but I am trying my best. We will make it through this and come out stronger then ever!
