This is a song written a couple years ago by Amy-Jayne McCabe

The Rock

The Rock

By the dawns early light my baby’s far away
Still the kids and I will start another missing him day
Only destiny knows when he’ll return
We’ll be here for him keeping the fires burning

I am the Rock, a foundation of love
Solid and true with strength from above
I keep this family going, I stand beside my man
I live without knowing
I am the Rock

As my day unfolds, I reach into my soul
Though I’m proud of him
I need some peace of mind to hold
And when I think about the the sacrifices he makes
I’ll do what I can do whatever it takes

I am the Rock, a foundation of love
Solid and true with strength from above
I keep this family going, I stand beside my man
I live without knowing
I am the Rock

It will be ok and I will not stumble,
Our love is so strong Our world will not crumble

I am the Rock, a foundation of love
Solid and true with strength from above
I keep this family going, I stand beside my man
I live without knowing
I am the Rock

Yes, I live without knowing
But I am the Rock

I just wanted to get this up, since the lock fairies went crazy last night! My 20th thread. Like others, I never expected to be here this long. I will be here as long as I need it and as long as others need me.

I am getting ready to go to lunch with a group of other spouses from the ship. the kids are staying here. DH is supposed to call, however I emailed him this morning, that I had plans and the kids would be at a sitter's. I did not tell him where I was going or who I would be with. Let him wonder why I needed a babysitter for three hours on a Saturday.

I am off--need to do my makeup and hair. Love and smooches to you all! The bar is open, help yourselves.

Hi SMW,

Just discovered your new thread. I did post on my thread the other day about your question about my son's Aspergers diagnosis.

Hope you're doing well and that you have a GREAT afternoon! Sounds like fun and a great GAL.

Thanks all for stopping by!

I had fun at lunch. It is hard acting as if when some of the wives are able to talk about a lot more of the port call stuff than I can--since their Hs tell them about things. However, it does help me stay on track for speaking positives to push the enemy out of my marriage and away from my husband. The law of attraction makes complete sense to me. I am working on all of this. I cannot expect positive results if I do not speak positive results.

Now, back to my Domestic Violence final essays on Law Enforcement and Domestic Violence.

Hi Hon

Sounds like your day is going well. I sat at a football game for a few hours in the rain. Couldn't find anyone else to use my other ticket so I had to "eat it". The game was just ok. At least my team PSU played decent in the second half after a dreadful first half. I left after three as it takes me a couple hours to drive out there. At least I got out and did something...idk. Still kinda bummed out. The waiting for something to happen for me is getting painful. I started to show some of that frustration with the Lord yesterday in my prayer time. To have lost all contact with my DD15 back in the summer and to have such limited contact w/ my darling (and when I do ..not sure which W will emerge) is pushing me to the brink.

Glad you had a good time out for lunch. You needed that. And yes you are for sure ..the rock. I like that poem. Praying for you and the family. Peace.

your homework sounds like a lot of the same stuff my darling had to study. She got a criminal justice degree and works for the state as a corrections counselor. She counsels the axe murderers and other sickos. Don't know why she would want to be doing that ..but she likes the $ and the benes. I hope she can transfer to a more benign state job after she builds some tenure.

Good luck w/ the studies. You are amazing sis.
