Let’s face it… deployments are difficult. Even with utmost optimism, there will be pain points while your military partner is away. My fiance, Lucas, has been in Afghanistan for almost 10 months now. He was actually supposed to return home in two weeks, but given the global pandemic going on in the world right now, we were told this week that his homecoming will be delayed for an undetermined amount of weeks. Fear can creep up on you quickly when faced with uncertainty, but we’ve agreed to channel our nervous energy into positivity instead. I decided to start by creating this blog post (and YouTube video).
I wanted to share 5 fun ideas that helped encourage Lucas and I during his first military deployment. Although deployments aren’t fun, we found that these ideas helped brighten up our experience. Hopefully sharing these ideas can spark some joy into the deployments of others too!
