This Is It

Today's the day.

Quentin goes on orders today....and for this week ...I'm a single parent. The next few months will be training orders, getting things ready for the guys to ship out to he'll be home hit & miss.

I started a blog several weeks ago just to deal with the deployment and all the emotions that it conjures up. I've kept it private...until now. I think I'm ready to open it up to readers, but No Comments. I know that people can say things meaning well, and come out...differently. So to protect me and you, I'm going to keep the comments off on that blog.

You can find my deployment blog, In Between Time, here.

I'll be praying for you. I can't imagine going through single-parenthood.

Blessings all over you, sweet friend.

Praying for you, your husband and family tonight.

Please tell him "thank you for serving" for me.

Blessings! ~ Rachel

Thank you for your comments. I will check out your blogs. They look very interesting and I'm sure they will be helpful to me, since you said this is your second deployment. And wow, 17 years of marriage. Congratulations! I know me and my husband will make it that far eventually. This is my first deployment, and I'm not taking it well. I don't like being alone. I have no kids to keep me company yet. Only cats. So any advice would be greatly appreciated. And just a friend would be nice too! Have a great day!
