Slap in the Face

I have two blogs, some of you know that, some of you don't... this one is 95% infertility, and 5% military, the other one is vice versa... I usually keep things seperate, but this one I need to duplicate.

Being an Air Force recruiters wife has helped me to forget about the very true reality. Knowing my husband is non-deployable for this 4 year tour makes all the 14 hour days worth it. I've been able to forget, or at least block out last summer when he was gone. Him coming home with orders is not something I have to worry about for another few years.

But that all changed today. Today, and my tears flowed, and my heart sank, I remembered the harsh reality of our life. That this is the life we signed up for.

Please go over and give Rachel some love, and prayers. A Little Pink in a World Full of Camo.

Tomorrow she will be traveling to Florida to say good bye to her amazing husband one last time.

Though I'm an Air Force wife, nothing else quite seems right tonight- Semper Fi


  1. I read about that on another IF/Air Force wife's blog. It's just so sad. My heart goes out to her.

  2. I am so sorry to hear this. I can't imagine the pain she is going through right now. I will keep her and her baby girl in my prayers.

  3. Heart breaking. Thank you for posting this.
