You know those days when you're just a little bit down?
Not a lot, not weepy or teary, not stay-at-home-and-bury-under-the-covers,
but you just need a pick-me-up?
That was yesterday.
I found out that, unlike most ladies with military men,
I'll be able to talk to Daniel everyday while he is gone.
Since his training isn't basic training—it's a tech school—
he has a lot more freedom and is able to call me in the evenings.
But, coming from the girl who spends most of my time with him,
this is something that is difficult for me.
When I come home, he's always there.
When I wake up, he's right down the hall.
When I go to work, I know he's only 12 miles away at his job.
I can't imagine him going overseas or being deployed for long periods of time.
For those of you who have been commenting about your soldier being deployed for a year or more,
you have guts.
You inspire me, big time.
Thank you for your helpful words.
Anyway, yesterday I was just feeling a little "blah."
I logged onto Twitter and a blogger had mentioned they had featured me
yesterday in a "scavenger hunt" type post.
I immediately clicked over to their post.
It was a lovely girl named Sara, and she had tagged me as having the "best blogger smile."
I was so honored.
Of all the bloggers, she picked me.
It gave me one of those, "Oh, that's so sweet, I just might cry," type of feelings.
Intrigued at what others picked, I clicked through the rest of the submissions.
I was floored to see that not only Sara, but two other bloggers
(Rachel & Danielle... go say hi to them!) had picked me as well.
You three totally made my day...
as well as all the other nice comments from other bloggers on their posts.
Thank you guys so much for making me smile.
You sure gave me a good reason yesterday.
