3.6.5

It is all about attitude and perspective. As I was going to sleep last night it dawned on me that I would be falling asleep alone for 365 days. I would be waking up alone for 365 days. And it seemed like such a l.o.n.g time!!

But according to my lovely husband, "it's only 365 days!" He says it doesnt really seem that long in his head. And as he says, it's only 365 for one night. then it's 364 and then 363.


So here's to a good attitude and a healthy perspective during this deployment.

That is definitely the way to go, one day at a time...in the bigger picture you need to think ok so its 365 days and then we have the rest of our lives together : )

You definitely have an amazing attitude! And, of course, little surprises could pop up in there like..."We're coming home two weeks early," and then it's only 347 days! That's what happened to Jerad, at least. It's great that Joe is encouraging you :)

I like his thought process. I'll have to make sure I remember that since it won't be long before my husband leaves too.

That is a good way to look at it for sure! I always just focus on getting to the next paycheck (1st and the 15th). We get paid, pay the bills due at that point in the month and start working towards getting to the next paycheck. It helps break things up for me. :)
