You Know Your Soldier Is Deployed When....

1 . You sleep with your cell phone on your pillow.
2. You use an entire bottle of his cologne so you can smell him around you.
3. You get nervous every time the phone rings or you hear a knock at the door.
4. The shoes he left in the middle of the floor are now oddly comforting.
5. The postal clerk knows you by name.
6. You buy beef jerky every time you go to the grocery store.
7.You check your email every 5 minutes including in the middle of the night.
8. You have enough priority boxes, packing tape and customs forms for his entire unit.
9.You have a ton of friends with deployed soldiers who you've never actually met because they're all online.
10.You don't just tie a yellow ribbon around a tree outside, you tie one around your heart.

I like this too.... I've noticed April doesn't let her cell phone out of sight since Troy has been gone. I'm glad you know that Matt arrived safely... we are praying for you two!
