Beautiful family in New York


My daughter Jennifer really amazes me. While Matt is in Afghanistan Jennifer has to take care of everything including her 4 and 1 year old. She does a great job and her spiritual growth has really made me so happy. Boy do I miss her and the kids ,they are growing up so fast. Love you Jennifer Emma and Logan.

Moving on


Mothers Day was wonderful for me thanks to my kids. Jennifer, Emma and Logan skyped me and Logan blew me kisses (that made my day) Holly spent Saturday with me and took me hiking shopping and movie watching. She went to Church with me on Sunday. Sara, Kayla and Morgan stayed overnight last night and my dear husband fixed us up some mean Angus steaks. Jeremy was able to skype me as well. I have so much to be thankful for.

They're Gone....


It happened it has really happened. Jeremy, Sara, Kayla and Morgan have moved out of town. I have had multiple meltdowns. I know they are only 3 hours away but we do not have any family here anymore and our kids are also our friends that we spend many get togethers for many meals (summer BBQ's, ect) It is so hard letting go. I know that they are in a great place now for Jeremys career and I will be able to see them but not as much. God has some other plans for me that is what I am sure of. I just have to figure it out. So all of you that have let me cry, thank you it is my way of healing and okay maybe I am wallowing in self pity.......I WILL SURVIVE...
