To My FRIENDS

This past year has really been a difficult one. The boys and I have had to adjust to daddy being deployed on a monthly basis and just simply going about our day trying very hard to not feel his absense. Not easily done. Daddy's presence is larger than life; physically, spiritually and of course Stomach'ly! (he's got a big appetite~ as you all know).

Anyway, this past year has really forced me to put myself out there and make friends, in a bigger way than usual. I credit my MOMS Club for really helping me get rooted in this community almost two years ago, but I also credit the friendships I was able to make while a member.

This year has really made me appreciate the imporance of good friends, more than any other. We could be here another three years so to know that I have such a wonderful support network around me, is very comforting. The women in my life right now, are my rocks.....and I love them for that. Thank you girls. This is a tribute to you.

**This is also a tribute to my online friends too: SHELL, LEIGHANN, SUSIE, DEBI, JESS, KELLY, KELLI, THERESA. ( I just wish I had pictures of us all together....) Five years and counting girls**

I am so glad that you have such a strong network of friends around you. It has to make deployments just a teeny bit easier knowing that you do have options if you need it.

Love ya! :)

*MUAH*
I'm so glad you remembered ... it's all about ME, dude!
BAH HA HA HA!
I'm happy to have found you as well, my friend. The life of a military wife is always full, but it's not always an easy place to create strong friendships. I'm glad we bucked the odds! :)

Just had time to take a look at your blog! I love you too and appreciate you as well! I'm very thankful for our friendship and 2009 has already started off with a "bang" so I'm thinking we're gonna have some good times this year!
