Our journey into the Army has been a bumpy one, but I do know it is what my husband is meant to do. I have never seen him happier and I have watched my husband grow into a solider and in that process become a better father, husband, and man. Everyone has days that they wish their lives were "normal." You hear Blair and I talk about these feelings in this episode, but it doesn't mean that we don't love and support our men. I am thankful for the experience and life the Army has given our family.
Not hearing from Dusty was hard. It was actually a 28 day span that the phone lines were down at his location. Those were 28 of the hardest days of this ten month deployment. I lost communication with my best friend. It was awful. I was thankful to have a support group of other wives and family around me during that time. When the phone rang on the 28th day, it was one of the best days of my life!!
Seeing Mrs. Goins and her son is truly such a treat!! They have an amazing relationship and it shows. She is truly glowing when she picks up her son and is talking to him. I hope that if one of my boys choses to serve his country that I can be as brave as Mrs. Goins. She is an amazing mother, mentor, and wife.
Blair truly breaks my heart in this episode. The pressure you have on your shoulders to make the two weeks of R&R the most amazing two weeks ever is so hard and it puts an emotional strain on the whole family. The love those two have for each other and for Colin melts my heart. I love watching them!
That is all for now, continue to tune in!
