He NEEDS to Go

I know this will seem a some-what-wacky-and-bizzare post to most of my five readers...but so be it. My darling husband is a pilot in the USAF and as nutty as it may sound...he LOVES his job. There are aspects that I'm sure are not his favorite, but he loves serving his country, helping others and doing his part. Which is part of the reason that he NEEDS to go. He's been unable to deploy due to a minor medical issue that the AF is slow to waive, but what many people don't understand, is that why this might seem like a blessing (and it is because this is the only reason our third child is well on it's way), my husband would be happier deploying. Because it's what makes him happy, I'm praying each day and night for that waiver to come through, for him to be able to plan his mission, hop on a jet and fly off to where ever and do whatever it is that he does.

The more selfish reason for me basically praying that my husband leaves NOW and not later, is that I REALLY want him at our baby's birth...and if he doesn't leave SOON (by March)...it's not likely that he will be there. If it comes to having to deliver my child alone, I will happily (not at first I'm sure, but give me a week or two to get used to the idea) do it so that my husband can serve... I just want to know...I need to know...NOW. I need to wrap my brain around whichever outcome, be it delivering with my husband at my side, or by myself while my husband serves thousands of miles away and dreams of meeting our sweet little one.

So the point of this post, other than a therapeutic relief, is to ask all five of my readers, if they would, to pray that my husband leaves....tomorrow, please!

I'm a military wife, and I totally get it. I hope he gets to leave soon! And that he'll be back in time for baby's arrival. I understand your need to know one way or the other, too. The never knowing what's next is the thing that makes me most crazy about the military...
