There are VERY few positives in your spouse being deployed, but one of those includes getting a spot up front at the Base Exchange =). You just have to find happiness in the little things.
A couple other reasons to find joy in our separation (a must in order to find peace with a deployment):
1. Getting to be near friends and family 2. Watching Addie bond with our loved ones 3. Finding a church home I love 4. Missing Tim uncontrollably (the horrible and wonderful part of a military marriage) 5. Looking forward to Tim's welcome home ceremony 6. Daydreaming about Tim and Addie loving on each other 7. Learning to trust God's plan for us
