Regaining my calm

What a couple of weeks!! First the wildfires, then my second son being diagnosed with autism and now, a move?!?
Thank you Army.
My husband is heading off to school for 6.5 months for an ASI to add to his MOS (basically a secondary job title to his current one) we've been preparing for this, I've just been stressed out because of everything I will have to deal with on my own for the months that he is away.
On Thursday we were told that he has come up on orders to Fort Drum in New York. It's upstate New York, closest town is Watertown.
Here's the rub. Fort Drum is 6 hours from my family. This is the closest Army base that we could get to be near my family! This is fantastic news, we haven't lived close to my family since we got married! I would love to be that near home to have my kids able to know my family etc.
The downside, the options for therapies for my kids are minimal. They exist but in Colorado Springs, we have HUGE options! In NY we won't. But I truly feel God's hand in this. I don't believe that the posting was arbitrary. We didn't request this, nor was Ft. Drum anywhere on our list!! I feel that God has a reason for bringing this posting to us and we are trusting Him with our future. If for any reason Fort Drum doesn't have the resources we need, I trust that God will close that door to us.
With all the upheaval, I have been very off kilter this week. I have hardly been eating, I haven't been exercising. I feel badly for letting my Rock It team down, but there will be no points from me this week. I'm definitely praying that I'll be back on track next week!!
So, that is the news from us, I have been truly losing my calm here, I've been stressed, short tempered and just over all very emotional (didn't help that it's TOM too lol!!) but like I said, God is still God.
We trust Him.
