Everything does happen for a reason!!
Well, just an interesting tidbit. Dh and I firmly believe that no matter what happens, good or bad, there is a reason for it, even though we may not be happy about it at the time. Case in point, as per my previous posts, dh and I were having a fit because his vacation kept getting delayed for one reason or another. he wanted to be here for the kids spring break so that we could take them to disney world. well, we had been planning to drive there and 3 days ago, the engine in the van blew. we would have been who knows where with 3 kids when this happened if he had gotten here when he was supposed to. so, I take back all of my negativity and thank God that he was late. As it is said, we plan and Allah plans and Allah is the best of planners. Other than that, everything is going great, Alhamdililah. The baby took right to him, which he loved. He was a bit nervous that she wouldn't have much to do with him since she is only 20 months old and may not remember him. Alhamdililah, she is just fine with him. Guess that is all now.

Dh just took the kids to school, time for a quick note. Everything is going well, Alhamdililah. We are so glad he finally made it home. Kids are loving every minute. Been very busy, obviously. He says Iraq is about 20 percent better than at the beginning of this whole thing. Says the people are getting alot more involved in fixing things, getting rid of terrorists, etc. and that helps alot. Says a ton more has to be done, but at this point, at least people have hope, which is reassuring. Allah Kareem, things will hopefully continue on this path.

Ok, I must start by saying how much I appreciate everyone's words of encouragement. It really helps alot. Dh called this afternoon, he made it to Germany, Alhamdililah. So, now, Inshallah, he will be here tomorrow evening. Please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Will post again once he gets here, Inshallah.

Paranoia begins to creep in...
Ok, first off, I must say, this is not a joke. I am not creative enough to make up this junk. Dh just called an hour ago, they changed the time his flight is leaving Iraq. now, he will not get to Germany in time to leave for the US on the same day, he will have to spend the night and leave Thursday morning. I just changed yet another reservation. I am getting to the point where I think that he is not supposed to come home, for whatever reason. What is that saying, I plan, Allah, swt, plans and Allah, swt, is the best of planners. Who knows? I just don't understand why this is becoming such a mess. I almost don't want to answer the phone anymore. Every time I do, it is just something else not working out. Please keep him in your prayers.

Let's try this again!
So, talked to dh today. Inshallah, he will be here on Wednesday evening. We are just praying nothing goes wrong again. His boss sent him an email yesterday, saying that dh misunderstood his email and that there was never anything wrong with his vacation, that he could go ahead and leave. Day late and a dollar short. Besides, dh forwarded me the email, he did not misunderstand anything. Just trying to cover his butt after dh's nasty email that he got. But, anyway, Inshallah, he will be here day after tomorrow. And, to certain readers, this is NOT a drawn out April fools joke! :) I am not this mean, well, maybe sometimes, but not this time!! lol Will update if anything changes or to let you know he made it home.

Forget previous post
Well, dh didn't come home yet. Now, we are just playing the waiting game. According to dh, his boss in Iraq says his boss in the US has a problem with his contract so his vacation is not approved. now, this has been planned for over 2 weeks, so to me, this is a just a bunch of crap that he is informed of this the day he is supposed to leave. like they didn't know this earlier. and no reason was given, none at all. we sent emails, tried to call, etc. no luck. now, we just have to wait and see. just ridiculous how they treat people. just makes me furious. he was supposed to be on vacation a month ago, now we are waiting again. so, guess that is all there is to say. will update when something changes. I just try and remember what dh says, everything happens for a reason.
