Things have really been up in the air with James Deployment...first he was going, then maybe he wasn't (this happened more then once), then maybe he was staying behind in the rear detachment and then.....yesterday Brittnee called with the news that he would not be staying home and he would in fact be deploying tomorrow. This has all been a very emotional roller coaster for them. She is, as i write this, at his "Yellow Ribbon Ceremony" this is the final ceremony for the soldiers and their families before sending them off to the war. As i said...this is a very emotional time for her, without the fact that she will be delivering a baby within the next 3 weeks. So as you can see James will not be here for the arrival of his baby girl and that makes me very sad for him and especially for Brittnee. Every wife wants their husband when they are going through something like this, ya its nice to have your mom with you but ultimately you want your husband. I cant imagine, having delivered 7 babies...not having my husband there for each one. So please, please keep this little family in your thoughts and prayers...especially today but through the next several weeks and months. We are learning the hard way how unpredictable being a soldier can be. We all go to work grudgingly everyday but we have no idea how hard we could have it.
