Choices. Life is all about choices. Making them. Hoping they are the right ones. Learning from them. Some are easy and some are difficult to make. What’s for dinner? Easy. Moving to South Korea? Difficult.
I am married to the U.S. Army, which means when he is given orders to go to South Korea he does not have a choice but I do. But what a difficult choice. 12 months without my husband but remain in my current job (which I love), in our current home (which we all love), near my family (LOVE!), and children’s lives are not disrupted with school, friends, and extracurricular activities. OR 24 months with my husband in a foreign country with no job, no home (house probably furnished for me), scared to drive, no family, no friends, and children will have to adjust, BUT I will have my husband and our family will be intact.
What to do? My husband and I both know which is the logical choice and which is the emotional choice but that doesn’t make it any less difficult. What to do? It is not that long, it is so long to be away from husband/daddy. We have lived through a deployment before, the last deployment was so hard. Great way to save money for future plans, rather have my husband than money. How much will he really miss in 12 months, he will miss so much of our children’s lives and milestones. I can do this, can I do this? What to do? WHAT TO DO?
