The military gods aren't like regular "gods." While they are mythical, and you do pray for them to do their magic, you don't really pray to them. You pray to your God for them to work their magic, and sometimes do a little rain-esque dance in hopes that things will go your way. Those spouses that have been around the proverbial military block know what I mean when I say they rarely, if ever, bring good news into your life.
Well, the military gods are smiling down on me right now. I thought my beloved husband would be back at the earliest in the middle of August, but more likely the end o fit. However, unless the gods change their minds (which they can be known to do), my dear, amazing husband will be back home with me in less than three weeks! I am ecstatic! I dare not tick off the military gods that be, and if you could all do a little wiggle dance to the gods for me, I would be eternally grateful.
Less than three weeks! Can you believe it?! I can't believe this deployment is thisclose to being over.
