A Silent, Lonely Journey

There are so many things I want to tell you but I can't. Sometimes military life is a silent, painful road. There are secrets to be kept. Security is first, and keeping things to myself is not my biggest strength. But, alas, I must. So that is why I am being quiet. I have recipes to share and funny things to tell you about and many, many house pictures to update you on but it will all have to wait. We are counting down to a deployment. It is taking up most of my time and my brain space. I am still fulfilling my responsibilities that I have for writing for other blogs like Goodwill and BVTMomsBlog. But otherwise it will be quiet around here until after the holidays.

We appreciate your prayers while our family goes through this difficult, but rewarding journey.

OK, one funny conversation that happened between the boys before I go...

Charlie: If you put the dog in the oven, he would be a hot dog!

Chase: No, actually, he would be a dead dog.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Holiday Season!


  1. I get the silent lonely journey my friend. Hang in there and know the Great Comforter is always by your side and if you ever need to talk I'm just a phone call away. ((Hugs)) and prayers for all of you. 

  2. Love your blog Tasha- you are such a strong mother and wife, I look up to you!     :-)    I think we all pretend everything is okay but sometimes we need to be open and raw and let it all out.. hope you have someone for those times!! Praying for you guys

  3. Thinking of you and your family constantly. Know that I'm here to listen, even if it's listening to silence.
    Many hugs!

  4. Yeah, we all go through that silent lonely journey..  that's what life is. But as long as we have our loved ones, always there for us no matter what, you have nothing to worry because you are being loved. Just keep the faith and you'll be alright! 

  5. I do have some fellow military wives I can talk with. We're just not best friends so it's a little different, you know? Thanks for thinking of us and for your kind compliment. :)


Every single comment is like a little present I anticipate as I unwrap it. Thanks for making my day!
