...of JOY! My heart feels as if it is going to burst from my chest. It's like I just woke up from a terrible nightmare. What a roller coaster ride my life has been lately. The emotional highs and lows, constant stress, the never knowing, separation from husband, family, friends, prolonged health issues, have taken their toll.
For the past two years my heart has cried out to God every single day. I've prayed and pleaded to be able to either stay home or get to come back home. With all the military restructuring going on we knew there was very little chance; maybe about 2% of that happening. I told everyone that it would take a miracle.
It seemed like every time we would have hope, something would happen that would crush our spirits again. For awhile there, I thought God hated me. Yes, I know that is just ridiculous but my heart hurt so badly for so long it was near impossible to see the light at the end of the tunnel. And just when everything was at the absolute lowest point, an opportunity arose that changed everything in the blink of an eye.
We get to be "home" for at least one more year!
Now I know that not everyone shares my particular faith in God and that is o.k, but if you knew all the crazy little details that I cannot share publicly and how things have fallen into place I think you too would agree that a miracle has taken place.
I cannot express how happy and thankful I am, and still even in a bit of shock. This opportunity solves so many of the stresses and complications that were weighing us down.
All the craziness of the last couple of months has really drained me emotionally and physically. But now that hope is in my life once more, I can see a little further down the road and it looks pretty darn nice.
I owe a debt of gratitude to all of you who encouraged me with your thoughts and prayers. I took them all to heart and I know they have made all the difference.
The nonsense is not completely over...yet. Hubby is still in Korea and I am still couch surfing for a time. But at least I have hope for the near future, and I am amongst friends and familiar routines.
If all goes well I should be settled and back into the swing of things by this Fall.
I just cannot WAIT to get my hands into some clay!
....oh and I have some new tatting design ideas...so this blog should be getting back to "normal" soon too.
Here's a little hint...
