Memorial Day....and A Phone Call!!!

So yesterday was memorial day and by far it is the best one i have had yet. Sunday was a downer of a day because once again Brandon didnt call and all of his comapny surely lot that they would get a call. We all pretty much gave up hope that we would get a phone call from our soldiers until a couple days before graduation! We were wrong the Lord does answer prayers and we all got a phone call yesterday! For 20 whole minuets i got to listen to my husbands voice and it is an experience  will never forget!  I was in the middle of the checkout line in michaels when i herd his ringtone going off wich was weird because he told me he didnt get service over there with his phone. i screamed so loud people thought i was crazy probably.lol. i was with my mother in law and i basically dropped evcrything i was purchasing on the counter handed her my bank card and ran outside after letting her say hi to him!  i was on cloud nine all day and stll am! He is doing so well and im so proud of him...i have 28 days and a wake up till im in his arms again and i cant wait the reunion will definitely be an emotional one weather it be tears of joy or smiles of happiness   will not know until the  moment arrives. Brandon is in one of the hardest companies at Ft. Jackson and is working so very hard im sure that phone call was a very rewarding one. He shot an expert for his rifle qualification...anialaed at combatives winning in 8 seconds!!! Thats my man!!!He will be probably moved up to the very top running group by the end of this week which closes out his last week of white phase then he starts blue phase which is the last and final phase!! I couldn't be more proud of my soldier. He has been called respectful by his drill sgts which is awesome!! Well thats all for this post ill up date you all soon!

WEEK 5...Half way done

Hey everybody sorry its been a while since i wrote my life has been full of emotions, worry, writing letters,scrap booking, babysitting and hanging out with my mother in law! But i now have time for an update. life has definitely been a little bit more challenging without my other half here. I write him a letter every night and mail it the next day so he doesn't go without mail he writes me when he can....we reassure each other in every letter we write that we love each other more than anything and that's not going to change no matter what anybody from the outside world says!! WE are a STRONG couple with GOD as our foundation. I have 38 days left till I'm in my mans arms safe and sound at least for a night :) I really cant imagine my life without him he truly makes me complete its crazy i never thought id find someone to spend forever with and love as much as i love Brandon he truly is my soul mate!!! I love you baby!!! <3Proud Army Wife <3

Finally Got a Letter...no wait two letters!!

Hey everybody i know its been a while since i last wrote I've been super bummed out because up until today i had not herd from Brandon in just shy of two weeks its been really rough but today i experienced something i will never forget!!! The feeling i felt when i had those two letters from my amazing and strong husband!!! The letters were very very heartfelt and made me fall all over again for my husband but at the same time he had doubts that i know that certain people are putting in his head so he can focus on what his job is...understandably. He's doubting things that in the past year I've known him he'd never even think about so needless to say it kinda broke me that they would tell him stuff but he knows better. Hes doing OK, he said he misses me a lot and can't wait till I'm in his arms again so he can kiss me!!! Awww....! In my past year of life with him i have never seen him write more than a paragraph and i got two letters that were both 2 pages full completely of words i was shocked but so so happy i got them i was on cloud nine today it was a wonderful present to receive on military spouse appreciation day!!! I hope i get to hear his voice soon because i really miss him but am so much better i got those letters now when i miss him and don't get a letter i can just re-read those!! I wrote him a 3 page letter in response to all he had to say in his two letters and reassure him how much i love him and ill be right here waiting for him when hes done with training!!! This is a really long post so ill end it until the next letter! Later.

God answers prayers!!!

So today has probably been one of the most amazing days of my life!!! I got to experience first hand what the Bible says about God may not always answer prayers like we want Him to but how he Needs to, to help us overcome whatever is going on in our lives. I have not gotten a letter or a phone call from Brandon in a week and today tons of girls were getting phones calls from their soldiers so needless to say i was heartbroken. then i wen to Bible study and we talked about having faith in God to handle things because He is the one in Control!!! Boy did i need that lesson tonight. When i got home i had a friend request from girl who has a fiance in the same battalion as Brandon, and we hit it off right away!!! She was so sweet and even though we were both super bummed about our soldiers not calling or getting a letter yet we talked and cheered each other up. if we looked exactly alike you might confuse us we are so much a like and good news shes a christian too!!!! Such a blessing from God we have agreed to skype every night to keep each other going till we see our men!!! I'm so thankful for her!!!
