I’m a bit behind. Things have been kind of emotional in my house lately, my husband is getting ready to go to Korea for a year with the army and let’s face it, that’s hard on everyone. I’m just not ready for it and to be honest, I would probably be even more concerned if I was ready for it. Separations are not easy and this is the fourth long term separation since our darling Anne was born. Let me be the first to say, that it does not actually get easier. The uncertain political situation in Korea is frightening. The fact that Anne has a true understanding of how long a year is and she knows how much she will miss, all add to the fact that this will be a tough year. He leaves one month from tomorrow, and I will probably be a bit scarce between now and then. I promise it isn’t from a place of not wanting to blog but from a place of needing to refocus my energy for a little while. In the meantime, here are my May blocks for Do Good Stitches.
These great Spider Web blocks are from .House. of A La Mode. You can find the tutorial here.
Oh Melissa that is really hard! I can’t even imagine. Enjoy all the time together you have. Sending hugs xxxxx
I’ll certainly keep you in my thoughts! Love your blocks!
You do what you need to do. Whether that means closing the door (temporarily) on your sewing room, or sewing away your heartache any chance you get. A year is too long no matter the age. Your family will be in my prayers the entire time. <3
Your family is in my prayers! 20 years I know your pain! XX
Oh Melissa, I’m so sorry to hear this. Make the most of every minute, for all of your sakes. My prayers are with you and your family.
Your family comes first. You spend all the time together that you can this month. I love your spider web blocks.
The fourth one! I’m sure it does not get easier. And please thank your husband for me for his service.
Enjoy the next month with your family. A year is a long time and even harder because you’ll be worried about him and how Anne is coping. You can do this! Love the blocks.
I love that you are making your family your top priority (as you always do)!! Dad and I are here for you!! Love your blocks!
It is unfortunate that your husband has to go defend another country. Has he considered a change in careers?
