MilSpouse friday fill-in #1

i love reading other MilSpouse blogs.
reading the way they handle deployments.
seeing activities they do while their hubs' are away.
learning of their next duty station.
laughing with them.
crying with them.
praying for them.
reading other MilSpouse blogs makes me feel connected to a larger group of women who are in the same season of life as myself.

wifeofasailor had a brilliant idea for all of us to get to know each other a little bit more.

each week, she’ll post a list of questions on thursday (so you can have your blog ready on Friday).
go to her blog on friday and enter your blog post into Mr. Linky so others know who else participated and we can all visit other blogs.

here are this weeks questions.

how did you and your spouse meet?
i was working at jax navy, a credit union in our hometown, jacksonville.
he walked in wearing an army PT shirt, sweat pants, brown leather sketchers without the shoestrings, and a set of raccoon eyes from the goggles he wore in the tanning bed in the few minutes before he came in.
can you see him??
he was so cute!!
he was there to refinance his truck.
he sat down and i started the loan process like i would have with anyone else.
only difference is, what should have taken thirty minutes took two hours.
we talked and talked.
we was so cute.
oh, i forgot to mention the grocery bag FULL of rolled coins he had to deposit into his account.
i admit to have let out a small chuckle when he entered the building.
he was quite the sight!
ok, back to the story...
when he was approved for the loan i didn't have anything else to do for him.
except for deposit his bunches of coins.
after i finished he asked for my phone number.
of course, i gave it to him.
he will tell the story a tad different, saying that i was the one who called him first.
i will set the record straight right now.
i called him because in our two hour conversation of nothing important, (other than not wanting the time together to ever end) i forgot to get a copy of his drivers license.
so, i got to see him again!!!
two times in one day!
he was so cute!!!
he says that when he went home that day he told his mom that he had just met the girl he was going to marry...
we were so young then.
only 19 and 20.
he was 19.
now, he's almost 29 and i'm almost 30.
i can't imagine my life without him!

what is the best thing about being a MilSpouse?
to me, pride in my soldier.
i am more proud that he is my hubs than i can ever express in words!

what is the hardest thing about being a MilSpouse?
right now, the time apart.
a time or two in the past and in the future, PSC'ing.
leaving friends and watching them leave will never get easier.

what is your favorite dish?
i haven't had it in a while.
i could make a meal of my grandma's potato salad, macaroni and cheese, and baked beans.
all on one plate.
a little of each side dish on my fork.

if you could change one thing in this world, what would it be?
is it just me or is there an increasing lack of faith, knowledge, and understanding in Jesus Christ these days??
i would change this first.
more of the world needs to know Him.
really KNOW Him.
trust in Him.
believe in Him.
have faith in Him.
the world would be a better place with more Christ-like humans.
just sayin'.

I am not a MilSpouse but I LOVED reading your answers =)
Loved learning how you met. How much you love him - I can hear it in your words.
Thanks for your sacrifice. And for his service. I don't know how you do it, but I appreciate it!
