It's not that I'm not strong...

It's that I am weak when it comes to certain things. I am a strong woman, I can make it through a deployment. I am a weak woman, I can't hold back my tears. When I say I can't hold back my tears I mean, I BREAK DOWN. You would think that someone I love very much just died. So, that is the difference in being strong and weak when it comes to me. I am STRONG because I can get through it yet I am WEAK because I can't get through it without my heart completely shattering into a billion tiny pieces. Does that make me weak in your eyes? How do you act when it's D time?

ANYWAY, Ryan and I went shopping at Old Navy yesterday and got a few things. One of the things I got was a hoodie. I had to have the hoodie because even though it says "Old Navy" on it, there is an anchor on it and it's Navy blue. I came up with some ideas for it and posted the pics and now I have a couple other girls wanting to do the same thing :) SO brilliant. The hoodie was only 10 dollars and they have matching sweatpants that I will be getting for 10 dollars too. Watch as my creative side comes out:

Cool hoodie! I know it's hard to think about deployment but you are strong! Never doubt yourself =)

You can do this deployment. You are strong because you're a Navy wife. And you'll see as time goes, you won't need/want to cry as much. Because you will get even stronger. Good luck!

Thanks for the nice comments. I think I found you on a Friday Follow that was already over and I didn't realize it was over until I went up and looked at the date - figured if people didn't want to follow the blog they didn't have to! But I'm happy I found you - my grandfather, 2 cousins, my husbands grandfather and a few of his uncles were all Navy men and my grandmother wouldn't talk about what it was like when he was gone (he was in Fiji during the war). And my Navy guys don't talk much either. So your blog is like something I've been looking for a long time.

That doesn't make you weak at all! This post reminds me of my post last night about me being weak. But you definitely put it into the words I couldn't.. if that makes sense? Lol.

But about your comment,.. thanks so much! And I'm here for you too! I might not still live in VA but hey, there's skype and we can cry over tubs of icecream together, virtually! Lol. Hope all is well! :)<3
