Lately, there has been alot on my mind and i've come to enjoy all the peace and quiet time alone that I can get. It seems as if everday that goes by, i'm growing to love the outdoors and nature even more. Nature is so peaceful and beautiful. I love reading, walking in the woods, fishing, and just soaking up all the beauty of another warm, beautiful spring day. I feel myself growing, learning, and appreciating more every day as Graduation draws near.
I have been reading alot more than usual lately. It seems to be the only thing that truely helps to get my mind off of Cale & this deployment. I have a huge stack of books waiting to be read so that will keep me busy for quite a while. I am so thankful that my very first teacher encouraged me to read and for my Mother teaching me to love to read. She always says that before I could read, I would memorize the words to books she read to me and I would "read" them when I was alone. Apparently I "read" so loud that everyone would tell my mother to make me hush so they could watch their TV. ;) But she was always taking me to the library and so my love for reading grew. It's my way of blocking out reality.
This deployment is putting alot of strain on Cale & I's relationship. Things are tough and i'm not going to go into detail. I'm just praying that we can get a chance to finally talk this weekend and work things out before he leaves for Afgahnistan. If it's God's will, then things will work out. <3
Spring Break is the week after next. :) I asked off work for half the week to spend some time with my brothers & nieces & nephews. If tomorrow is as pretty as it was today, we are going to cook out and maybe go fishing. I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend!
Just thought i'd share this picture because it made me smile. The newest addition to our "farm" family.
