One More Year

So, news from the home front. We will be staying in Hawaii for one more year. Eric has changed battalions and will be deploying again sooner, rather than later. He'll be gone most of the year again but it will be okay. We talked about this a lot. We really wanted to get one more deployment in before we left here and this way instead of leaving around Christmas time, he'll be coming home. I in no way think this deployment will be easy. It's gonna be tough. This will be the 3rd year in a row he's missed our anniversary, his birthday, my birthday, Rye's birthday, Father's Day, Mother's Day. Not only that but the 3rd year in a row he'll be gone for half of the year. It will be a struggle but I know we can come out the other side stronger than we are now. I am counting on Skype to help up through this again.
Keep us in your prayer, I have a feeling we're gonna need them.

Just think he gets this done will have to do anymore for awhile? Be awesome if not. You can do it!!!! Just think of all the things you can pay off. That really does suck that he is gone for all those again that has got to be hard. LOVE YOU!!
