Everything Inside of the April Brave Crate!!
Living life on the home-side of a deployment can seem like a heavy weight. The weight of loneliness and worry ach of our moments with an added sense of stress and tension. Over the years, I have definitely experienced seasons where finding happiness felt difficult- so the idea of joy, fun and (dare I even say) FUNNY in life’s little moments seemed impossible.
While each of us will carry the relaity of our deployment countdown with us daily, it’s not impossible to find joy and even a little bit of laughter while we move toward homecoming. By simply becoming open to experiencing these things, we can begin to help ourselves shift focus away from the struggle and onto life’s little pleasures. Deployment is tough- but it is NOT So Serious.
