There is really no other way to describe how I am feeling right now. I have less than 48 hours and I will be on a plane heading to sunny San Antonio to reconnect with my amazing husband. Really all I want is a HUGE hug!!! I think that is one of the things that I miss the most! When I've had a bad day he always can release the tension with one of his bear hugs. We have a busy weekend planned as I'm taking him off base and we'll be staying at the San Antonio Riverwalk. Everyone says this is what you "have to do" so why not. We've planned on taking a Riverboat ride, visiting the Alamo, dinner with his classmates, and of course some shopping.
In addition to my elation with travelling to see Mr Mr, I also received an email from a diaper company that I emailed a few weeks ago. I have been approved and selected to become a national distributor for the company. I couldn't be happier! This is one more step to building our family security. I am also looking at this as an opportunity to use my skills in Marketing to become successful. I'll keep you posted as things become more clear.
Sera is continuing to progress in her speech therapy and she just started occupational therapy. She has been diagnosed with ADHD, which we were pretty certain was the case. She is being tested for thyroid conditions, Hasimoto's has been mentioned, but the doc would like to do a couple more blood panels before they confirm anything. Additionaly Sera will be meeting with a ENT to have her adnoids looked at, they believe that part of her speech problem may be caused by that, plus she snores like a freight train here lately when she sleeps.
I am feeling a sense of the stress being lifted off of me. God does answer prayers, in his timing. And with that I would like to share one final thing: (It probably doesn't fit in this post, but oh well >:))
My brother, a proud Marine. I am a proud sister, just as proud as his wife... and as proud as I am of my husband. He was in a SERIOUS accident this past Saturday, so serious he is LUCKY to be alive! There are a lot of missing pieces in the puzzle, but I know this, someone upstairs was sitting on his shoulder. Here is a photo of the wreckage:
