I have an address now. It feels good to be able to get a letter or card out whenever I want to. It is a relief. I know when Hubby arrived they had to put him up in temp quarters til a couple of days ago. The unit is excited to have him but wondering why he is coming in so late in the game. Oh well. he is safe and he says that the base is nice, huge and a day camp compared to where he was the last time. And he had it good there too. The only drawback is that it cost alot of money to get wireless internet in his hooch. We can deal with that though. He can use messenger at the MWR tent and we can chat for awhile when he makes it over there.

The kiddos and I had a really good night last night. The other day I was speaking with a good friend and she gave me some wonderful words of wisdom. Very simple but wise. When I feel overwhelmed I put my fist up to my heart and hold tight. She said "Let it go and let God deal." That was all she said. I put my hand down took a deep breath and as I was letting it go I felt this huge weight lift off my shoulders. Ever since then I have felt lighter and as if I can take anything on. It also reminded me how wonderful God is. Nothing is greater than He is and I can always go to Him. From those two sentences the Kiddos and I were able to laugh and have a good time lst night. It is the first time in awhile we have been able to do that. Buddy Lee was laughing without me having to tickle him and Big Man was joking around with me. It felt good.

I hope everyone has a great day. I am going to finish up laundry and take care of my sick Sweetness.

I know it will. It seems some of the most simple thing will be a huge relief or an eye opener.
