Deployment Songs

It seems for every major life event there’s a song that just moves me through it. It personifies everything I’m feeling and thinking and when I take my eyes off the prize it gently redirects me to where I want/need to be. Music has always been there for me. When I feel sad and just want to embrace it instead of denying it, it’s there. When I’m happy and want the world to know it’s there.

Like I said before, Mr. G got PTS approved. That’s means sea duty any time after May. If I knew where we were going I could maybe guesstimate at the deployment schedule but we don’t know.
