Day One Hundred Ninety.

I have a million reasons why I love my closest friends, but one of the reasons is that we share excitement together. We count down until our husbands return, we get excited for one another when something good happens, and we celebrate great news with one another knowing the other will be just as excited for us. Originally my friend's husband was suppose to have leave right around the same time as Jason in the spring. A few months ago his leave was bumped up and since then we have discussed the start of Jason's soon after Steve's leave. So today was that awful day for her where R&R ends and you have to say goodbye again...yuck. As sad and emotional as she was she sent me a small message with a little smile face that said, "It is your turn now." What an amazing friend to still share my excitement on a day like today.

It feels like just last month I calculated the weeks until R&R the night after Jason left and cried. I cried knowing I would never make it that long without him or even make it to the next week haha. I felt like a lost soul without any hope that I could do this. Now here I am! Could it be it is really my turn in my group of friends for R&R? Is it actually almost here? I think maybe so. I have ALMOST survived what I thought was the unthinkable 27 weeks ago haha. :)

I am so so so excited for you! And I'm so glad you have a friend who can share in your excitement amid her sadness!

This part is what makes the whole thing worth it! These last few moments leading up to R&R are so full of anticipation and excitement and joy! Enjoy every minute of it because it goes by too quickly!

Woooooo hoo! Soon, so very soon... I can't wait! I'm going to laugh if I go into labor when J gets home. It'll be a "Welcome home Jason and Mason" party we'll both be celebrating.

I hope your friend realizes how selfless that is of her to be so kind and sweet even though her husband just left. As we both know, not everyone is like that these days.

<3 you!
