One of my all time favorite songs is Faithfully by the band journey. I hadn't listened to my Journey cd for awhile and was reminded of how much I love their songs when watching the season finale of Glee. Immediately after that episode I went and downloaded Gless rendition of Journey and burned it to a cd. I have their version of their song Faithfully on repeat and listen to it over and over. In alot of ways this song is the perfect theme song for military spouses. Especially for those who are going through a deployment.

Lines like "Being apart ain't easy on this love affair. Two people learn to fall in love again. I get the joy of rediscovering you, I'm forever yours, faithfully."This seems to capture the emotions I have been feeling lately

As you all know I've been in a bit of a funk waiting for this deployment to be over but when listening to this song today, for the 5th time. I had to stop and think about the deployment in perspective and actually be thankful for going through it

Since M has been gone we've both grown alot, both as individuals and as a couple. Our first deployment we were newly married and still adjusting to being married. This one took place after M had been home for a year and I had finally gotten adjusted to living in NC. I've told yall how we both fell in a rut before M left. I had work and school and M had alot of thing going on to. It was easy to not make time for us and our relationship

This deployment made me realize that we took all that time home for granted and could havespent it in a totaly different way. We both agreed that when he gets home we are going to spend more time cultivating hobbies that we enjoy together, traveling and exploring new places
