Yesterday I was visiting with my neighbor
and really good friend, Jeanne.
During our conversation, she told me that her
younger sister was going to need some help this summer.
Her sister is married to a Naval Officer who is
being deployed for 13 months.
Yes…I said 13 months.
Out on the ocean somewhere with no leave.
He will miss over a year of life with his family.
For the rest of the afternoon I couldn’t get this out of my head.
I am so grateful for the sacrifices made by the
men and women in our armed forces.
But almost more than that,
I am grateful for the sacrifices that their families make.
Although our soldiers are heroic beyond words,
the real heroes are their families.
The wives, husbands and kids who keep the home fires burning.
So today and tomorrow…think about these people.
Ask God to bless them.
Fly your flag proudly.
Thanks for stopping by…
