A New Book

Had a couple books I put on hold come in at our local library. Wanted to share something from this book that I read over and over. I can't seem to put it down. The similarity of experience and an overwhelming relief that I'm not crazy after all wrapped up in one book.

"It happens to military spouses at different times, but eventually everyone wears her new reality--the reality of being a lone and afraid--like a cast. And as with a broken limb, you learn to function in spite of the crippling sense that you're just barely hanging on. It's only later that you look back and say, 'How on earth did I get through that?'"
