I wanted to share the photos and video from Luke’s last homecoming (July 2015) to help get you all excited for his next one in just a few months! (And if you’re just joining me in following this blog, Luke will be meeting our newest son for the FIRST time at the next homecoming!) I know going through these photos has made me even more excited and the video made me cry yet again. Homecomings are such an emotional but such a INCREDIBLE experience!
Being a military wife has many downfalls. His work comes first. Always. It HAS to. Our country comes before you when your husband is in the military. It can definitely get annoying sometimes but I couldn’t be more proud of my husband! The biggest downfalls by far are the goodbyes. They’re heart-wrenching and I wouldn’t wish them on my worst enemy.
Being a military wife also has its perks, though! Whenever someone asks what military life is like, I always tell people I believe military families get to experience some of the best things in life. Being separated for months at a time really makes you appreciate the person you are separated from and it makes you not take a single day for granted when they ARE home. That’s why homecomings are nothing short of incredible! I thank God my husband has come home safely from every deployment and that we have gotten to experience the pure joy that comes with a homecoming.
