Last night I was tossing and turning. I knew it had become time to say goodbye to the drama that was unfolding around me. Close some doors on being used and those “friendships”. I know I deserve better.
I was on facebook and looked up the site to where Paul is training. Someone had posted on there about whether training is going on anymore and so forth. I said yes the company still exists. It happens to be the one my husband is. A lady responds and is asking questions. I answer. I befriended her on facebook.
We start comparing notes. She has lived where Paul is training. She has given me reassurances that I needed. She gave me the ins and outs of what to expect and what I should wear. Along with this she also gave me the opportunity to ask so many questions. Her husband and her son both have served. Her husband has served in Iraq and her oldest son in Afghanistan. Please keep him in your prayers. Her youngest is now in training with Paul. So I will be interested to see if Paul knows him.
I love when the stars align and you meet people who make a true impression on your heart. She has no idea how badly I need this conversation, this interaction.
I also found it cool that her son and my mom were both born in the same place in Germany. I have found a friend and one that I will treasure, as I walk this uncharted territory for our family. While the waters are murky and muddy right now, I am sure they will clear with time and understanding of how things work.
