Back to Army Strong

39 Weeks Down…Day 281

So, this time last week I was curled up on my couch wearing Ryan’s rrrrrranger panties and Army shirt while eating his GIANT leftover bag of peanut M&M’s, listening to my Deployment Playlist, and wondering how/why this was worse than the first time around.  Well, we survived another week!!!

I drove back from my conference in Orlando tonight so I had a lot of time to think.  Eventually this deployment will end and we’re one of the lucky couples that hasn’t faced back to back years apart; for that I am so thankful.  There are so many things that we have to look forward to and I am so blessed to be planning it all with the most amazing man by my side.  It literally blows me away sometimes to think of how God orchestrated us to be together from the beginning of time.  What love He must have for us to care about our future family back then!!!  It’s crazy how falling in love with Ryan has brought me to fall in love even more with God.

I spoke with my bestie (after Ryan, of course) and she made me sit back and think about the bigger picture (as she always does).  We have great communication, we love each other 110% and both give just that in our relationship.  We put each other’s wants and needs first and God will be at the center of our marriage.  We have such a strong foundation and we have been through so much by ourselves and together.  I’m just so blessed and today am reminded that we are in Month #10!!!!  We’ve got this!!!  Soon we’ll be married, in our brand new house, curled up watching Bad Boys II on the couch and deployment will be but a memory!!!

Hooah!  Can’t wait to be Mrs. Ryan Grim and to support him as his wife. ❤
