Yesterday we celebrated Thomas' 3rd birthday here at my house. My friend Tamara lives in a really small apartment, so I loaned her my house for the party. We had a really great time. Thomas was so cute opening up all his presents. Tamara did a fantastic job with the party. It was a Wubbzy party and she made a cake, centerpiece, craft and treat bags. It was all very crafty and beautiful. After the birthday party, we all met at 3 Amigos Mexican Restaurant for dinner. It was a little chaotic but good to get out as families, together. And hence, the reason I am writing this blog today.
In military life, I find myself without my husband regulary. Whether it be deployments, TDYs, late shifts, rotating shifts or just him being busy with his job, I am alone a lot more often than I would like. That is why I am so thankful for my moms group and all the wonderful friends that I have in the group. They are my support, my comfort, my shoulder to cry on and my ear to listen if I need them. I am lucky to belong to a group of women that mesh really well together and compliment each other. Sitting at dinner last night, I just realized how blessed I am to have them all in my life. Each and every one of them plays a different part in my life, but my life would be missing something if just one of them were to leave. They are my friends, my sisters, my partners in crime, my therapists, my babysitters, and sometimes they are just there! My job as a military wife and mom is made easier by their presence! I love you all, Tamara, Victoria, Rhiannon, Olga, Leah, Cara, Sandra, Kristine, Jessica, Meghan, Leslie, Jeanine, Maria, Ashley, and all your children as well. Thanks for being a big part of my life and sharing your lives with me! :)
