How Lucky I Am

I believe that social media, blogging included, often displays an edited version of reality. In the case of Brown is the New Pink, this is partially on purpose. I want to create a positive space to separate myself from work. However, I think it’s also important to acknowledge some of my personal struggles so that it doesn’t seem like my life is all sunshine and rainbows. (Newsflash: it’s not.) πŸ™‚

Saying goodbye to Derek today was tough. I miss him terribly, and this weekend went by way too quickly. I honestly don’t know how military spouses do it. We’re 4 of 6 weeks into his rotation, and it’s starting to wear on me. I know that the remainder will go by fast, and I’ll be fine, but today is a rough day. Reading the A.A. Milne quote below made me smile and put my feelings in perspective. It is, of course, perfectly normal and OK for me to miss Derek, but I’ll also try to remember that I am blessed to love and be loved deeply.

β€œHow lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” – A.A. Milne,Β Winnie-the-Pooh
