And So It Begins

Hello friends!

We have officially entered a new phase in our lives: We are in the first week of what we believe to be the last deployment we will ever have to endure. It's so cool to be able to look back over the last fourteen years of our marriage and the separations that we have made it through and know (barring an act of God or stop-loss) that this will be the last. It's also a new experience for us. Every separation before this one, we knew there would be more. If my calculations are correct, by the end of this deployment we will have spent the equivalent of four years of our marriage geographically separated due to my husband's job. I am so proud of the man that I have married and the way that he has unselfishly and unfailingly served his country and provided for his family.
Blessings on your day,

God bless your husband and your family (that's you, babe) for all y'all's service to our country. I know I cannot fathom what the sacrifice has been. I am so thankful.

It's why the all the Military Families in my family get cards on Veteran's day...because the wives and kids were a big part of making it possible for their father (or in my sister's case, the mother and father) to serve our Country in this capacity.

Thanking your whole fam for the sacrifices y'all have made...and rejoicing that this will be the last deployment. Woo HOO!
