If I could sum up how the Army has given my life more meaning than I ever thought possible when I agreed to marry that ol' cadet, this is what I'd say: Perspective.

Well said!

My husband is currently home on R&R and I am so happy. The build-up to his return was nerve racking and I contemplated planning trips and specials things for him. Thankfully, I decided against all of it.

All he wanted was to be at HOME, and the kids and I are simply happy to have him here. What we all really wanted was to experience everyday boring life.....and it ROCKS!

Perspective.....yep, it's important to adjust it everyday. I know that I am very lucky and I am very thankful for EVERY little and big thing I have.

When I was on R&R, I made my wife breakfast every day but twice. I had looked forward to it for months, and I reminisced about it for months later. Coffee, breakfast, waking up next to the one I love. Awesome.

Now I'm home for good (ha), so sometimes she makes her own breakfast. =)

Well, thanks for that smack upside my head! I've been in the major throes of a self-pity party for the last few days (years). I really needed this.

In fact now that I think about it, I believe that's exactly why I stop by here every morning; we don't have hardly anything in common, yet I'm awed by your sunny outlook no matter what. Thank you again Sarah.
