Lord's Prayer for the Military Wife - Author Unknown

Lord, Grant me the greatness of heart to see, the difference in duty and his love for me. Give me the understanding to know, that when duty calls he must go. Give m a task to do each day, to fill the time when he is away, and Lord, when duty is in the field, please protect him and be his shield.

Worth the Wait


After frustrating delays, and changes to arrival dates & times, this was the text I sent out last week. This is Obi-wan as we waited at the airport to get his bags as he came home for his two week R&R. (BTW, he doesn't normally look this goofy, but between the MANY MANY hours of travel, jet lag, and sheer happiness of being home he was being goofy.)

This past week has been wonderful to have him home. The Diva & Prima Donna have been beside themselves with excitement. School was put on hold, we homeschool and both girls worked through the Christmas break to take it now instead.  We have not done anything real special, just hang out at home and be together. Obi-wan & I decided we would do something when he comes home for good in a few months. For now we have over 6 months of being together to make up for.
