Projects, large and small, that's what I am doing to gain ground in staying organized and making it my life style again. This week I didn't do much but MAINTAIN due to circumstances I will blog another time. A week ago I did 2 things: I finished reading this book that my friend, Jill, loaned me years ago. It has taken me a few years to read this. I decided I would read the last 2 chapters and get it out of the house. Unfortuneately, it's a series! I don't see myself reading any more of it. I have other books I'd like to read that I posess. I will return this book to Jill this week! One thing out of the house! Last Saturday I scrapbooked with my friend, Heather. I did these pages and it was so fun to do! It took me awhile to figure out the photo layout. The paper layout was done at a scrapbook camp, in Sept. I got a good start. I need to do some journaling. That will happen soon. So there is photo organization done, more to follow. Hopefully we can scrapbook once a month. Scrapbook is of my granddaughter, Melody. She will be 3 in May, so I better get going. Now that she has a brother, Owen, I need to get photos of him and get his going. But need to catch up with hers first!

One of my favorite shows is Army Wives. Last night was indeed a tissue alert! Denise is notified of her son's, Jeremy, death on the field in Afghanistan. She is with friends at her soon to be daughter in law's bridal shower! What a sad ending to a day that was so happy! Why was it sad? Why did I cry? It's only a TV show! But I have come to love the characters on the show and much of Army life is like this..watching your husband, wife, daughter, son deploy and waiting for their safe return. KIA is happening. Daily living without your family member....Life itself.....
I am an Air Force veteran and Army Wives is a good depiction of life on base. We cared for and watched out for your friends. I loved the closeness I felt with people when I was based overseas. Away from home, building relationships and then watching people leave you cared about and knowing you probably wouldn't see them again. It's life. There was no war going on in the late 70s but we were there in case. I just feel connected in a way that makes me feel these women are my friends, even fictional. But we know in real life that life in military is not easy. We grieve the loss of our soldiers and when they come home wounded. God bless them and their families, all over the world that serve. We can help by praying and giving support if you know military people.
