OK, with that out of the way, I and another milspouse, were recently invited to a dinner hosted by the local American Legion Post. We were each presented with a blue star flag to hang in our windows at home. Display of the Service Star Banner first came about during World War I. During WWI and WWII most flags were hand made by mothers across the nation. Each blue star on the flag represents a service member in active duty. When a family member is killed, the blue star is replaced with a gold one representing sacrifice. I am displaying the flag at home with great pride of my hubby's service to his country.
It was wonderful to be surrounded by this group of people who wanted to do something for the spouse of a deployed Soldier. The food was quite excellent, too! And to my new friend, C, whose hubby is also deployed, you've I'm so glad to meet another Army Wife! Thank you to those who made this dinner happen!

I'm looking forward to life getting back to normal for a while. It will be different having him around, but I'm excited for the transition. I'll have to move some shoes so he can fit his in the closet!

When you are waiting for a train, don’t keep perpetually looking to see if it is coming. The time of its arrival is the business of the conductor, not yours. It will not come any sooner for all your nervous glances and your impatient pacing, and you will save strength if you will keep quiet. After we discover that the people who sit still on a long railroad journey reach that journey’s end at precisely the same time as those who “fuss” continually, we have a valuable piece of information which we should not fail to put to practical use.

That's what's playing on the soundtrack to my life. That's what HunnyB sang to me on the phone this morning. I got the most lovely flowers from him delivered at work today!
In a way it's hard to believe it's already been two years. In another way, I can't believe that it's only been two years. Although we are apart, we still celebrate this milestone. We will continute to celebrate our second anniversary until our third anniversary takes its place.
