Merry Christmas to Me!

There's so much I have to be thankful for this season.  First the pregnancy.  Second, my husband was scheduled to go on a 3 month deployment starting today.  He was going to miss Christmas, our anniversary, Valentine's Day and possibly our daughter's 3rd birthday.  We were completely prepared for him to go.  Bags were packed, paperwork was processed, we were just counting down to departure.  Then he gets a phone call yesterday...the deployment is canceled.  WHAT?!?!?!  Ok, we were in a bit of shock for the rest of the day.  So many emotions going on.  We had prepared for it and we were ready for it, and now it's gone.  It's just hard to switch mindsets so quickly like that.  Today I'm more happy about it and of course, I'm so happy he'll be able to be here for everything, including going to Florida to see my family (gotta get him a plane ticket now).  He was disappointed because he was ready to go and get it over with, get some good flying hours and experience over there, but he's also happy that he won't miss out on everything.  He'll end up going sometime, it just may be another few months before it happens.  So much to be thankful for, and someone is sure looking down on our family this year.
