Another month and no promotion

OK well you remember last Fall when I told you that Mike made the promotion list. He was so excited and boy did we need some good news with all the bad news. Here we are in June and the Army has not promoted one E-8 in his MOS. Not one!! Poor thing looks every month. Oh well it is gonna happen that is all I care about. I wish I had a camera with me last week when he was here. He had his new rank in his car displayed on the dash. HA how is that for motivation.

I have been blog hopping lately and enjoying reading. Some of you are such great writers. Which has brought me to two thoughts. The first thing is I am getting excited to meet some of you that will be attending the She Speaks Conference in Charlotte. I am not going to be attending but am looking forward to getting together with some of you so that I can thank you for praying for me face to face. It has meant the world to me. So if you have not let me know that you are coming please do:) The second thing that has been weighing on my heart is where do I go from here. God has my attention. What direction am I suppose to go? Am I suppose to put my journey into some sort of book to help other woman going through cancer? I am not a writer but I keep getting this nudge.

I have received several emails about the bracelets. Alexa will be home on Wed. So give her a few weeks. I know there are lots more states so don't be shy to ask.

Heading to PT tomorrow I cant wait.

Happy Summer
fighting like a girl

Follow your heart hon. Some people write books just for themselves that never get published. but they don't care cause it is all there togtether. Others have the need to publish. My daughter lives in Charlotte and had laposcopy today. I will pray for both of you!

It is so hard to watch someone you love work for something... and not get it month after month! But I agree hang in there it will come!

Thanks so much for your sweet comment. We enjoyed helping with the Cancer Challenge very much.

I am familiar with the aftermath you're experiencing (lymphadema & shoulder stiffness) - do what your PT tells you (coming from a PT - ha). It's a long road, but you have an amazing spirit.

God Bless, Kacy

i linked to your blog from another blog and am going to try to catch up on your older posts, but just wanted to say hi in the meantime. my husband was on his promotion list for about 5 months, then he received the orders that he had been promoted but it took them 3 months to pin him - so he was going around with one rank, but getting paid at the new rank....the army makes so much sense sometimes...!

i pray that you find the direction God wants you to go in soon. sometimes i find my answers in the strangest of places, when i'm not even looking.
