~* He's Baaaaaack! *~

My hubby is home! Woohoo!! He got home around 7:30pm last night, and lemme tell ya, I have never been so happy to see anyone in my life!!!

Now, I realize that it was just a few days really, since I saw him over the weekend. Nothing like a deployment, which many spouses are about to experience. But I miss him when he's gone, and I'm excited that he's home. Simple as that.

That's all I have time for, so have a great weekend!!

~* Wonderful Wednesday *~

Since I'm all alone today, I'm skipping the "hump day" thing, but it is- already, at 6:07am- a pretty wonderful Wednesday.

Mr. M got to come home just long enough to take a shower and wolf down some food last night, but it was late, so I didn't really get to spend any time with him. But he did tell me that he gets to come home tomorrow night!!! Yeah, I know it's only a day early, but it still makes me incredibly happy. He also will have Monday off, which is nice for him, but I'll be at work all day.

So, remembering that news got my day started off great, but then I saw a text message that made it even better. "Hey sugarpie, I know you're asleep and I hope this doesn't wake you, but you are the most beautiful, amazing woman of my life and when you see this in the morning I hope you will know that you mean more to me than anything in the world. Without you, the most euphoric places on  Earth would feel like the 7th ring of hell. I want to do something nice for you when I get back. I love you."

(I fixed the punctuation and extended the shorthand) Oh. My. Goodness. My big, strong, bear of a hubby has the sweetest side ever!! He would kill me if he knew I just posted that entire message (not literally kill me, relax), but those words melted my heart and put such a huge smile on my face that I just felt compelled to share. On top of the extra dose of sweetness this morning, I realized that I've been in a better mood for the past few days in general. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I completely changed up my eating habits. I've started to realize that nutrition really does affect every aspect of your body. I could go on about that forever, but I need to get ready for work.

I hope everyone else has a Wednesday that ends as wonderfully as mine has started!

~* Count Your Blessings *~

This is advice we all give, but how many of us take the time to count our own blessings? Today begins day 1 of week 2 for Mr. M in the field. I'm not thrilled about it, and I'm not thrilled about the way he left the apartment this morning, so I'm going to take my own advice, count my blessings, and put myself in a better mood.

I am grateful for my dog, who loves me unconditionally and is always excited to see me come thru the door.
I am grateful to have a job, at a time when jobs are hard to come by.
I am grateful for my co-workers who barely know me, but have already opened their car doors to me.
I am grateful for my little brother, who took time out from Oktoberfest fun to let me know I am loved.
I am grateful for a stocked fridge and a full coffeepot.
I am grateful that it has not rained on me while I wait for the bus in the morning. (Yet).
I am grateful to have a soft place to lay my head at night.
I am grateful for anyone and everyone who has ever pushed me just a little bit farther.
I am grateful for everyone who has stuck by me thru countless mistakes.
I am grateful for my love of reading, because I will never be bored.
I am grateful for my health and happiness.
And last, but not least, I am grateful for my husband. I am grateful for the love we share and the life we are building together. I am grateful for his friendship, faith, and support. I am grateful to have someone to laugh with, and to cry with. I am grateful to have someone to dream with and someone to bring me down to earth when I need it. I am grateful to have someone to hold and who will hold me. I am grateful for someone to love with all of my heart, thru the easy times and the rough patches. I love you, Mr. M. Come home soon.
" Don't place your better days in the future."
