1) please read this if you haven’t already. hopefully it will make you pause a second before you say something really insensitive and hurtful. http://rockpapernavy.squarespace.com/journal/2010/9/20/before-you-say-another-word.html
2) a big big big thank you to the people around me who truly understand and can pick me up when i am down. you girls rock.
3) is it october 30 yet? i want to be married to the love of my life already.
4) november will be the shortest but most amazing month. even if it’s for less than 30 days, for the first time in over 3 years i will get to wake up next to clint every morning, see clint everyday, and fall asleep in his arms every night. heaven!!!
5) i am trying really hard to think about the positive things coming up… the showers and parties, the wedding, my birthday, the honeymoon. but i still struggle a lot with the big, fat deployment that is looming overhead. feel free to send as much positive energy as you can in this direction…i could sure use it.
