In anticipation of B's EAS (End of Active Service) date and our impending move, I have been remarkably overwhelmed with all the things we have to get done! All the planning, budgeting, packing, cleaning, repainting, ALL of it!! I have since given up sleeping in anticipation. (And this is still with a couple of months left!)
The Marine Corps has been such a part of our lives for so long. It's scary to step out on faith and try something new. But this is what is best for us. A lot of people have asked us, "Why doesn't B just reenlist?" Well, he at one time, planned on it. Things have changed, we have changed, and that isn't what is best for us anymore. Sure, it would be easier to just re-up. But we can't make life altering decisions on what's easiest. We can't settle because we have become complacent. We deserve more than that. We have great plans and great things we want to achieve and as great as the USMC can be, this just isn't the right road for us anymore.
I've been doing some reading and praying and attempting to trust that the Lord has a plan for us and everything will work out. And as He says,
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will
strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous
And I know that He will. And that is enough.
