Home Safe and Sound!
It is hard to find the words to express how grateful I am that Chris made it home from Iraq! These past two years have been the toughest out of our almost 10 years with the Marine Corps. I am happy to say we are about to close this chapter, and move on to VA where life will not involve deployments for a while!!!! When I saw Chris hop off the bus, it seemed surreal that he was actually standing in front of me. I didn't want to let go while I hugged his neck. The kids were beyond excited to see Daddy. They both were up at 5:45 am that morning and ready to pick Chris up. Hayley has not let him put her down for the past 3 days. Luke is busy showing Daddy all of his new tricks and filling him in on all the things he has done while Chris was away. Praise God for bring Chris home to us for the second time. Thank you to all for your thoughts and prayers. They have been felt and much appreciated! God bless!
I am a wife to one of The Few and the Proud, he loves his country and happens to be the most amazing man who loves me unconditionally and is truly my hero; a homeschooling mama to 3 wonderful children that make me smile everyday, and a Christian trying to live my life for the Lord. Though I fall and stumble in my walk with Christ, I live in His undying grace and mercy. He has blessed our family beyond my wildest dreams and I cannot praise His name enough.
After reading many of my friends' blogs, I thought this would be a great way to keep friends and family up on what our gang is doing! Let me know if you stop by and see us.
