I write this in bittersweet spirits. Tomorrow, Seth, Caleb and myself are going to spend the night in Atlanta. We are really excited to have fun but at the same time I know that this is the last "vacation" our family will have until the fall :( Eight long months with no Sethy Poo. The part that stinks the most is that Caleb is getting ready to take his first steps and say his first words. Seth got back late Wednesday night and had left early that morning so Caleb missed a day seeing his daddy. When Seth came in the door from work tonight, Caleb sat on his lap and cuddled with him forever! I could tell he really missed seeing Seth and it made me so sad to think about Caleb missing his daddy for the next eight months. We are going to skype and Seth is going to make a video, but nothing can ever replace Caleb being able to physically be with Seth. I am praying really hard that God will just get us through until this deployment is over and that he will keep all of us safe. I know God doesn't give us a spirit of fear or worry, I just have to remember that. We are very blessed to be healthy and happy and if a deployment is the worst thing that happens to us, we should be very thankful. I think about the people in Haiti and I just have to thank God that He has blessed us as much as He has! So I am going to enjoy this weekend together with my family and count all of my blessings. God is good, even in the midst of deployment and natural disaster...God is good and His mercy is forever :)
P.S. I have a new poll up!
