Homecoming Giveaway!

We all know that deployments can be hard, being away from family and friends, adjusting to life as a "single" parent for the ones left behind and adjusting to life on a ship or in the desert somewhere.

As hard as deployments are, coming home can be even harder. Readjusting to roles as husband, wife, father, mother, and all the chores that go along with home life. Integrating your spouse back into daily routines can cause stress for everyone involved. The left behind parent doesn't want to give up the "power" so to speak and the returning parent may not know how to handle the new requirements for their time.

There is hope for families dealing with these situations. Sometimes it can be hard to go ask for help from a counselor or even talk about it with your own spouse but communication is key to moving past the reintegration period.

I have recently found out about another helpful tool for people dealing with Coming Home to family.

  1. This video is so sweet! It amazes me how I've seen so many marriages torn apart when their service member returns. After the honeymoon phase is over, it is really difficult to transition back to living together. I wasn't sure we were going to make it ourselves. We learned to communicate again and came out stronger than before he left. It just took a lot of time. <3

  2. Deployments are no fun but you make the best of it...thankfully we have been thru only one deployment but I know we have more ahead of us...I have treasured these last two years (even tho I had to deal with the cold & snow!!!) Homecomings are so exciting...I enjoyed ours...Things do change but after two years we are stronger than ever...& happy.
