Family Serving Our Country

Today's post shall be a little more close to home and close to the hearts of many. Whether it is/was your Grandfather, Father, Mother, Husband, Wife, Friend or even yourself, I think we all have known or know someone who serves in the United States Military. These special individuals put their lives on hold and their life at risk so that we may live with no fear. Live with freedom everyday.

This hits home for us. My brother in law serves with the United States Marine Corps. He has a beautiful, supportive wife and 2 young children. They recently made a huge move from the heat of the desert to where it snows and gets quite cold. With this move, came the knowing that he would have to be deployed again at some point. Too soon he leaves again for Afghanistan, leaving his family for a long term.

We had the privilege of visiting with them when they came to attend our wedding August 2010. What a fantastic family. They helped us out more than we could have ever asked for.

His wife has more patience and strength than I could ever imagine. To be able to handle his absence while he is gone is something that I know I could not endure sanely.
Please take a moment to say thank you for those serving and who have served for us.
Thank You Will for all that you do!
