Today, the fat lady sings.

I don't even know how to say this, I feel like I just lost a limb or something.  Today, we are officially civilians.  I could never have predicted how emotion I would be over leaving the Army.  I've been crying for days, yet I cannot put into words why this is so upsetting.  I've been trying to figure out what to write about this for days and I just have no words.  I really wish I could explain my emotions right now but nothing I type seems to make sense or convey exactly how I'm feeling.

Once again, the lyrics of my all time favorite song seem to be the only words I have.


"It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right,
I hope you had the time of your life."

You will thrive. Blind corners, especially life-changing ones, will throw you off and stress you out. What you've learned in the military world gives you strength, perseverance, and patience to succeed in the civilian world. Mourn the losses but also relish the memories and forge on to create new ones.

I'm sure it feels so strange! But, if anything, the military life teaches you how to adapt. I have nothing but faith that you'll find your "groove" soon. :)

Change is scary but good!

I so understand your emotions! Not that I've gone through it before, but when I think about hubby leaving the military I get worried and feel apprehensive about what our life will be like! Don't worry... once a mil spouse - always a mil spouse! :)

No words are necessary. Thank you both for your service!! =) Army wives make such a sacrifice as well.

JUST went through this 7 months ago and I wish I could tell you it's all better now, but there are still rough moments. Hang in there!
