This has been the most difficult year of our marriage. There has been so much that has happened and so much that has kept us from growing together. But this is the first time i dont feel scared about how the reunion will go.

When Thomas first joined the army we were separated for just about as long as this has been, but this time it feels different. I dont feel like we are struggling to keep connected this time. Instead it feels like we have both been growing parallel to each other on our way to rejoining.

I feel so sad about leaving kingston. Well... i feel sad about leaving the people. And before, in previous times, reuniting would have been difficult if it hadnt been for family and friends to help us get out together by babysitting. This time, however, i feel excited. What a great opportunity! A new city, new house, new job, new church.

I know that there will be an adjustment time, but i dont think it will be complicated this time. I think it will be an adventure. I think we are going to grow as a family in a great way... and i am so excited to see it.

i'm so glad that God is giving you peace about this, and joy and excitement about it too! so happy for you and Thomas to be back together full time - and that you have been growing, even apart. Love you girl...
