Military Spouse Appreciation Day

Thanks to another $100 donation this morning we are only $200 away from our goal!!!! I'm so excited!!

May 8th is Military Spouse Appreciation Day. I guess this post is a kind of like patting myself on the back, but if you only knew some of the women I am friends with...
  • Amber, who has a 4 yr old, is pregnant, and who's husband is deployed on a sub
  • Shelley & Susan, who's Navy husbands just finished serving a year in Iraq
  • Tabatha, my cousin's wife who dutifully serves at home while Chris is sent to Iraq (and God only knows where else) yearly
  • Candace, who's husband is technically on shore duty, but was just flown to Asia for 2 weeks
That's just a handful. These are beautiful, amazing women, who do it day in and day out. I honor them today. You must go to Faith at the Front and read Sara Horn's poem entitled A Day for You, Military Spouse. It's well written by someone who obviously knows.

Thank you for all you do to support your husband. :) I appreciate you!

Military wives/moms rock!!

I am friends with you (obviously), an Army wife, and an Army Reserves wife. I feel like I can never tell you thank you enough but don't want to do it so often I sound insincere.

Just know that if we weren't on opposite coasts (literally!!), Joel and I would physically help you anyway we could. He with babysitting and me with Girls Night Out. ;) {grin.grin.}

Until that day comes, I'll just keep praying for you. ;)
