What She Wore: green and white striped, short sleeved, button down shirt; grey pants, black strappy sandals.

Last month my husband filed his official paperwork to get out of the Air Force. 
Yesterday we got a little sign from above that this was the right decision. 
An order came down yesterday requesting a Captain to serve six months in Kuwait starting this June.   The Hub would be the first on the list to go, but since his paperwork has been filed, they had to go with someone else.  If they’d sent him he would have missed the birth of our baby and the first six months of his life. 
We would have dealt with this situation, but the Hub feels certain that this is a sign.
We’re headed on a new path–no telling where it will take us.

In one summer I had a baby who was hospitalized for five weeks, quit my job, and moved back to my hometown. This blog is about starting over.

    Proves that everything happens for a reason!!  I\’m so glad you will have him there for the birth and first months!

    that\’s a good sign.  That would be a terrible time to miss.  He wouldn\’t even know what he didn\’t know.  make sense?

    That would be really hard to have a baby and not have your husband there to experience it with you (even if you are doing all the work). It would be even worse to raise it for the first few months of its life by yourself! I\’m happy that you won\’t have to do that! Definitely a sign that you guys are making the right decicion.

    That is such great timing.  It was meant to be.  How great for all three of you that he\’ll be home.

    New paths are as exciting as they are scary…everything has its time, perhaps this time is for you and your family!!  Congrats on the wonderful news that your hub doesn\’t have to deploy.  I know the feeling and it is such a relief.~K

    Thank God it\’s all working out for you three.  It would be an awful shame for him to miss the birth of his first child………let us keep remembering those who have missed their children\’s birth as a result of being stationed overseas in our prayers.  Have a nice weekend!

    My hub\’s getting out in five months. It\’s kind of nice to read someone\’s positive reaction to the same transition. I get a lot of, "but aren\’t you scared?"s, and "what are you going to do??!"s.
    Sigh. We\’re not sure. But we can DO other things. Life goes on, outside the military.
