There were things about you that I expected to learn… Things like just how much I love my husband. Learning to be independent and confident. Learning how to take care of 2 young children all on my own. And all those typical things like how the heck Tricare works and the time difference between here and Afghanistan.
What I did not expect to learn was that I CAN kill a spider on my own, I can speak up for myself, and I can get through the toughest day with a lot of prayer, a good cup of tea, and an episode of Modern Family.
More importantly I have learned these things:
- Who my true friends are.
- That although I LOVE my husband and want him in my life, I do not need him in order to be myself and to survive.
- I can endure SO much more than I ever thought I could (at the beginning, I thought I’d never figure out how to carry a 20+ lb. baby in the sweltering summer heat while wrangling a toddler all while dealing with severe joint pain).
- My relationship with God… Is MINE. I can pray, go to church, and speak God’s Word… Without my husband there to lead me.
- I am beautiful. This one surprised me because it was a very unexpected lesson… I am beautiful because I am me and not because someone is around to tell me so. God made me this way and I am fearfully and wonderfully made and I only need God’s opinion, although I don’t mind (and still want) my husband’s opinion.
My name is Megan and I am a stay at home mom of two little boys, Ian (almost 2) and Andrew (almost 8 months) and the wife of my high school crush, Jeff, who is a U.S. Navy Seabee! I’ve know him since we were 12 and we’ve married for 3 1/2 years. God, my husband and my children are my priorities and passion. I love music, acting, and writing and I’m excited to see how God uses me to help and bring His love to others through my talents and life!
