Just a normal Friday

Well this morning I got up and ran DH to the office early. The Army Birthday was June 15th, so they were having a 3 mile run at Ft. Myer. So it was off to the office at 5:20am.

I came home and was just doing normal housework, then the kids all started getting up. My son, is getting ready for a sleepover tonight after play practice at church. He is sitting with his two year old sister reading to her. My sixteen year old is getting herself around and my 4 yr old son has been up since 6am wanting to do it is a super website for pre/K phonics/reading.

I forget sometimes during all the mess of life that I am so blessed. I have a husband who loves me, children who are my life (even when they are naughty) and a Savior who loves me!

Life is good!

My friend and sister in Christ, Marnie was diagnosed with breast cancer. The above link is for women with BC to journal their thoughts and journey. She is a very inspirational woman. Please be praying for her and her husband Dan.

I know, I know....

Time and obligations seem to creep in and if you are not a "serious" blogger like myself. I tend to let life, husband, housework, church etc....from keeping up with by blog, not that I have tons of people reading it. Which is fine, it is more for myself than anyone really.

We just got back from our home that we own in Alabama, we were there for two glorious weeks. We didn't want to come back. Alabama is our safe place so to speak. It is the one place that we can truly reset and refresh and energize ourselves. DH still has four to six more years before retirement. Yet my heart yearns to go and live there. Unfortunately that then turns DH into a geographical bachelor, and the children into a situation we don't want. Our two year old is daddy's little princess and oh how she loves him. It would break her heart if she couldn't run to him coming through the door after work, or crawl into bed with us if she has a nightmare. Being together as a family is way more important than to live in a house that we love. These years until retirement will fly by so fast, the others already have!

So until that day when we say good bye to active duty it is pick ourselves up by the boot straps go to Alabama when finances and time allow and enjoy while we can and be grateful for the blessings and the life that God has given us.
