Organizing my computer: military wife strong

So I have been trying to get more organized.....the house, business, kids schedule, computer files, you know life in general. I guess that you could call it my new years resolution but I like to consider it a new habit not just a resolution!
I try to chip away everyday at a project. This morning, I was doing a bit on the laptop. I came across this picture.
It's of my friend, Kursten, and I during the birth of my 4th kiddo. In true military style, Ben missed this birth.
It never struck me as odd.....just something that I had to do. Baby is due to be born, daddy is in country fighting for our freedom. Check, check, check.
Little did I know when I left Pennsylvania, I would no longer consider this weird. That 2 out of our 4 children would be born without their daddy present......you know the things that you think/dream about as a little girl just fly out the window in this crazy military life.
It makes me emotional though seeing this.....new friends (like literally I met Kursten and BreAnn when I was almost into my 2nd trimester) stepping in to be labor coaches and support our family. Because they became family quickly. We don't have a choice in this lifestyle.
Maybe because I am still reeling from our surprise move and still trying to get settled in our new home, I ruined my mascara and make up this morning while filing away this memory.
So make sure you hug your family today.....blood or sisters-by-choice!
Miss you Kursten!!
