All I want for Christmas is you.

7 Dec

AH!!!! I’m so gosh darn excited! SCOTT COMES HOME IN 15 DAYS!!!

He’s been gone since June 4th! By the time he is home it will be a week and a half short of 7 months. Golly, it’s been a long long road! God has continued to be so faithful even through the moments where we were so low and the light at the end of the tunnel seemed so far away. Although this isn’t the end of the separation it’s a nice break where we can just relax and fall back into a daily life routine, even if just for 10 days. We have to soak it all in and enjoy every sweet moment!

Scott has been very clear that he doesn’t want to make any plans. He wants to play every day by ear because he’s so used to a strict schedule where every moment is accounted for and planned out. I can understand him wanting the freedom of flexibility. He’s most looking forward to seeing his friends and family, sleeping in his own bed, playing with Clover, and meeting our new doggy Darcy. So many great memories will be made this visit!

I’m most excited to roll over in bed and have him there, to cook him his favorite meals, show him the projects I’ve completed in his absence, decorate the tree, listen to Christmas music while sipping wine, cuddle, and be able to call down the hallway to him. Honestly, just all the small things that make up a regular boring day in the life.

Everyone keeps asking me what I want for Christmas and I can say with no delay..nothing! I have all my wishes coming true just with having Scott come home! I keep getting butterflies thinking about picking him up from the airport and watching him walk into our apartment. This is another one of those moments that has kept me going through the days I just didn’t have the energy to put a smile on. I’m not gonna lie, I’m also very thrilled that I didn’t have to travel this month. I’ve become a bit burnt out on airports, lay overs, rental cars, and hotels. It’s nice that after traveling once a month for the last 6 that he’s the one coming to see me! :]

I’ve been trying to keep really busy for the last two weeks before he arrives. This week I have had something going on everyday and it’s helped to keep me from just staring at the clock. (Yes, I do count down the hours to being another day closer.) 9:11 am on the 22nd can’t come soon enough!!

So very thankful and as always…God is good!!!


Ps: Merry Christmas from Darcy and Clover (and us of course too)!
