Happy Day

Today my hubs came home from EMV (Enhanced Mohave Viper) training. Almost 5 weeks in the unforgiving California desert. He is none the less for wear..about 14 pounds lighter (I need EMV..forget weight watchers) and reeking like a body that hasn't seen much water in 5 weeks..but looking yum, yum delicious. It's a grim reminder that shortly he will be gone for a long time, to points much less friendly then the California desert..but he is trained, with the best in the Marine Corps and I am comfortable in knowing these last weeks have again prepared him for hell. It is hell for us all but let's be realistic. Those that wear the uniform bear the heaviest burden. You will never see me sporting the bumper sticker, Marine Corps Spouse, the toughest job in the Corps. Although it is cute, it is very far from the truth. After many deployments and hardships on my hubs part, I look at him renewed as my my husband and as an upright man. I sleep at night knowing he's out there for me, for you, for us. He is many in number and I sleep well. Thank you Greg...for everything. I love you.

I'm so happy he's finally home (for a while). There's just just a pride in our military husbands that I never knew could exist!

Thank you both for your service!
