A Year...Already???

We have lived here at good ol' Fort Leonard Wood for a year this week. It's crazy to think we've been here that long already. I swear I have no concept of time because I'm still telling people that we "just" moved here. It has been a great year for us. We've really had the opportunity to grow as a family and to heal from our time at Fort Hood. I am still strongly connected to many of my relationships at Hood but I have found my footing here.

I am going to be honest though, at times I struggle with the hierarchy that exists here and the ego's that some of the Spouses and the Soldiers have. Their need for self-inflation can be very frustrating. Too many people here at FLW think too much of themselves and their rank or their husband's rank. That would be the one thing I dislike the most about this post.

I am enjoying all of my volunteer work and the relationships that I have been blessed with through it. I thought I did a lot of self reflection at Fort Hood but I'm finding that I am really doing that here. It's not an easy process though, it's quite humbling.

Looking forward to seeing what else FLW has in store for us.

I know! Isn't that crazy?? I keep telling people we "just moved" here, too but Aug 1st was our one year mark... time just seems to go faster doesn't it? Glad you're enjoying your FLW adventure - especially having your husband around - what a great & deserved blessing for your family :))
