34 of 52 ...Alone...

I'm living near my family now, I live in a nice community with many families, my kids are always around me and yet I feel alone.

My family works, they are busy, some live 20 minutes away, some live 30 mins away. Although we are no longer separated by miles and miles of ocean I still feel far away. It takes time to acclimate to a new environment, it takes (ME) an even LONGER time to meet new people that I get a long with. Blame it on the military life I've grown so accustomed to, blame it on all the shows I am watching now with women that travel in groups of 3 or 4 making me miss my girls from each assignment. I miss the talks, the game nights, the laughter, the cries, the fun, the companionship, the help with the kids.

It takes time I know. I am grateful to God for allowing me to be back home, for providing for us to be able to buy a home, for my health and the health of my kids. But God knows I'm a woman and I need to talk, I need companionship from a female, we all do no matter how much we say we don't, it's a crock.

OK the Violin is stopping now, thanx for taking a ride on the pity train, everyone return to your life, nothing to see here, move along.

On a Happy note my BFF is coming to spend the night tonight, we have LOADS to catch up on, so this will be fun. FINALLY an adult conversation where I'm not being judged but understood and empathized with.



  1. I love the picture and what you write. You are not alone girl ..... I wish I had enough money to spend weekends in Fl and every other weekend in PR! I'd keep you company! Stay encouraged, God is working and moving and preparing your new friends! - ur sister in NY!

  2. I like that "Preparing your new friends", that's a great way to think of it, they're gonna need the help, I'm loads of fun! lol.

  3. I totally know how you feel. I've lived here almost 2 years now and I can't even fill up one hand with the friends I have. I wish we'd gotten close sooner but I feel like I made a life long friend in you even though it was short lived while we were in the same place. It's kind of bittersweet. I think that we make some of the BEST friends in the Military community. We bond differently because we understand each other in a way our civilian friends don't. We have awesome friends litterally all over the world.
    What I wouldn't give to have all of my sisters here with me sitting in my living room drinking coffee and tea and laughing. :(
