3 Months Down, But 9 Months to Go...

I'm sorry I haven't blogged for so long. Yesterday we reached 3 months down, and I was feeling really good about that until I got the dreaded phone call that the battery had suffered another casualty. Usually I will have an inkling of these before I hear officially because of media sources and social networking sites, but this time I was shocked. All the events that take place after a casualty have happened very fast with this recent one. Our unit had our briefing last night to inform the other spouses of the incident. My heart breaks for the wife and daughter that lost their hero.

So my upbeat post of 3 months done on the deployment has become a dreadful sigh that we have 9 months left of this. Needless to say, I don't feel much like doing a review today. I'm just going to sit with the kids and enjoy some rain. I'll be making posts to update you on our progress over the past month, etc. in the next few days.

Please pray for all our troops serving in combat zones and especially the family that is grieving today.
