My Sister sent this to me....in honor of my pending Birthday

In light of the fact that in just days I will turn 40....and I seem to be having a hard time with it. She is a couple years older then I and I have been dreading this day for a long time. When my husband deployed last year and missed my 39th one, he said, "Babe, I will spend my 40th over here, but you will be in my arms on yours".....hm......Army had other plans, instead, I shall be spending it alone drinking a toast to the next 40, may they be as blessed as the last ones have been.........so in light of those out there who share my age and above, I like Andy Rooney and this makes me like him even more!

In case you missed it on 60 Minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40:

60 Minutes Correspondent Andy Rooney (CBS)

As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:
A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think. If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it. Older women are generous with praise , often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her! .. Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?', here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!

Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!



I love the words ORDERS! Cause we have ours.........

As my husband stated in the email to me when he sent them to me


Our ticket to Freedom!

Love you!"

Now is the countdown.......we are getting real close to their return date, hopefully enough time for them to work out the issue with my nerve. I think I have an entrapped nerve in my thigh, EMG test is next which will determine where the issue lies and it better be done next week or I will call and schedule it myself.........I think I will need soft tissue work done to work it out, and hopefully I will walk across that field when they come home and not in a wheel chair. Keep the prayers coming.......(Anyone that knows about this condition let me know what you know please!)

I feel horrible about not keeping up with everyone, but I am so medicated on most days it really is hard to think straight. I hope that everyone is well and that things are fine.

With much love ~ A Soldier's Wife


Oh McSoldier you should watch out....

Because apparently according to this quiz McDreamy is my Celebrity soulmate......of course you had no problem telling me that Angelina Jolie was yours without taking the quiz, so we did it online together and low and behold you were right.......what is up with that?.....so I guess we will just stay together, what do you think? Either that or I take out Mrs. Smith! :)

Love Poem.........For my husband.

Baby, I am so sorry I worried you........I love you so.......

All Because of You

Author: Kate Reneigh Woodruff

I awake each day with a smile
And greet it with a laugh;
The world is a treasure to me
Because of you.

Every time I think of something sad,
I replace the thought- with you!
My mind is instantly changed
And my heart is filled with gladness.

Every breath I take is meant for you,
I live this life surrounded in joy
And I bathe in the promise of your love,
My soul belongs to you.

Each time I see something beautiful
I want to take it and bring it to you;
My life has so much meaning now
All because of you


Two posts in One.....a 2 fer....he he

And yes folks she is on drugs again......

First T- A Quest for T that is I apologize for spending what seems like forever reading your blog tonight, I fell asleep reading it..........

You have also touched on a subject that is so close to my heart.........my relationship with my husband, my soulmate, my best friend and the one person in this world who completes me.

I have posted poems to him over the months that he was finally able to read, which sparked him to write a poem about his love for me.......it's very private and it shall remain so, but what I will say is that not one person in my life ever wrote a poem about their love for me........or about how my love for them has changed their life........

He also wrote a book for me while he flew across the ocean, praying for me to be alive when he got here, entitled "Why" the Why is why I love this woman, and it was not about merely about me, it was about what my love for him has done for him. These two things have changed my view on life.......on how I shall survive the last of these couple months without this man who is my other half of my heart........it is now with hope and faith......faith that God has instilled in each of us. Faith he probably instilled in us along time ago but we were too young or immature to recognize it or to hold onto it like we should have.

I am not a hugely reglious person, we attend church, we pray, but I don't preach to others but I will discuss church with others if they are up to the challenge (I'm quite a good debater but do acquiesce when beaten) but there is one verse that has forever remained a good part of my life and that is Ephesians chapter 2 verses 8-9: For by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not of works that no man should glory.

Maybe God provides us with this wisdom at a time when he thinks we best need it........I don't know, but thank you T for making me remember something that I really feel someone I know right now could hear about now.......
