Beautiful Sunset in Iraq
Soldiers talking to family at home
A Sheik packing some heat
A gentle reminder...
This morning T pointed out to me that it is our two month anniversary. Two months since his return from Iraq. He asked me how the adjustment was going... Good question. Some days are hard. Most days are good. His perspective? "Feels like I never left" Mine is a bit different. I feel less adequate sometimes. T came back in such good physical condition that it makes me self conscious.
I am doing all the yoga I can stand, but I am still miles and miles behind him. Okay- I could probably be doing more yoga, but there is always another need that comes up. Like the kid who needs me to search for an umbrella, or write a check out for lunch money, or the blogs I check in the early morning that turn into 40 minutes of reading instead of 40 minutes of sweating. Although my yoga poses are getting easier, my will to begin has gotten weaker. Again-failure. But what are ya gonna do?
Here are the things we notice in each other that are new since the deployment:
Kelly says T is more fit
Kelly says T is friendlier to people and goes out of his way to make nicey nicey.
Kelly thinks T looks great!
T says Kelly is more confident in her abilities.
T says Kelly is more patient
T says Kelly is more beautiful (needs a new glasses prescription or else this guy is blinded by his love!)
Change can be good I guess.
