Time to Shine {Features} No 101

Well my hubby has officially started his deployment. We tearfully said good bye to him a few days ago.  It’s been a sad few days but we finally heard from him yesterday. He arrived at his destination safe and sound. Tired but safe. The kids and I are still adjusting to life without Daddy and it will take sometime. 
I so appreciate all the thoughts and prayers coming our way!!! Your continued patience as this blogger tries to navigate things as a single parent without her carpenter is MUCH appreciated!!! : ) 

So how about we check out some features from last week’s Time to Shine party????

  3. Praying all goes well for your family. As a pastor’s wife whose husband has been gone on mission trips and such, I can relate on some level with being seperated amnd being a single mom at times! You can do this and you’ll be great!

  16. Thank you so much for the feature!! I’m very grateful. Best wishes to you and your husband and kids as you adjust to his absence.

  17. Huge hugs, Courtney! I know those first few days are really tough. I’m glad you heard from him. As time goes by and you guys get into a routine the days will start flying by. You’ll be on autopilot, I promise. Our first deployment I read somewhere that the the days are long but the months are short. And it’s true – sometimes you have those long days but once a month has gone by you think wow, that was quick! Then before you know it you have a few months under your belt and then you’re half way to having him home. We are just now half way through this deployment. You can do it girl!
