Mommy Moments: Getting Fit During Deployment Changed My Life

There are times in our lives that define us. Moments that either pass us by leaving us feeling defeated, or moments where we are forced to grow and strengthen ourselves. As a mother, those moments seem to come almost daily as we are faced with decisions that leave lasting marks on the littlest humans we love so dearly. With such a huge task on our hands, we are often left to use our own experiences, hoping they will provide our children with the tools we gained in our own moments of success, or strife, so that they may be equipped to handle their own challenges when they arise.
