The day is finally starting to get closer! Well, technically it is always getting closer but now it actually feels like it. It has definitely been a long, hard journey but it is so nice to know that we are finally getting there. I've had my bad days of tears and depression and good days of trusting God and motivation to be the best wife that I can to my husband and now we are almost to that wonderful day when we are finally reunited. Since I last wrote, I have moved back to my hometown to live with my sister, started my new/old job, and gotten re-established in my church at home. These days, I am busying myself by making preparations for when I finally get to see the love of my life once more. I'm searching for flights and hotels and basically just making travel plans. I am also looking for the perfect outfit and doing my best to be in the best shape possible for that wonderful day. I am so excited that I can hardly stand it! I have definitely been tested in many ways since Cameron left for basic training on April 1st, 2013. As a result, I believe that I have become a better Christian and a better wife. I have really been learning to trust God and I can now see how he has been using my struggle for good. As a wife, I have really just been striving to be supportive to my husband in every way possible. I pray for him constantly and I am always looking for new ways to show him my love and to honor both him and God. I'm not going to lie, this has been extremely difficult for me and anyone who knows me well (or even not-so-well) can testify about just how much I have struggled. Especially in the beginning. Throughout it all though, I have learned a great deal of things and I am thankful for the experiences that God has given me and the lessons that he has taught me. While I never want to be separated from my husband again, I know that with him being in the Marine Corps now, that is just wishful thinking. But now I know that no matter what, God will provide and he will pull us through. The strength of mine and my husband's love for one another has also been tested throughout this whole journey and I have come to see just how strong it truly is. I can't help but get tears in my eyes when I think about all of the obstacles that we have overcome together with God. I have been greatly blessed with the life that I have been given and I wouldn't want to have it any other way. I love my man and can't wait to see him in 26 days!
