Just wanted to share this picture of Cole at my husband's Deployment Ceremony. Before Greg's deployment, I never realized the great sacrifices, and heavy burdens that are placed on the family of a soldier. To hear my children ask everyday "When is Daddy coming home?" and to know the answer is one, they will not understand. It is just heartbreaking.
Here is another picture I found while I was on pinterest today...
If I saw this picture a year ago, I would of thought "how sad". Now that I am a wife of a soldier overseas... I burst into sobs... because it really is SAD! Each pair of those boots represent a soldier, who laid down his life for MY freedom. He or she was someone's child, spouse, sibling, or friend. Those aren't just boots lined up in a row... they are memorials. To help us remember WHAT FREEDOM COSTS!
I am so thankful for the men and woman who serve our great country each and everyday! I am blessed to be the wife of an amazing man, who felt called to serve his country at 17 years old.
Lord give me the strength I need to stand by my soldier. Give me the peace I need get through the long nights without him, and the faith to know it is all in your hands!
This is just what was on my heart today, so I thought I would share. :) I hope you have a wonderful week. I have a few awesome projects coming up soon! Just taking it slow on the blog, so I can be here for my kids! I know you guys understand!
Thanks for stopping by,
