Thankful {Day 10 & 11}

Thankful Day 10-
Yesterday just got away from me! I was able to spend some much needed time with Andrea and Ethan. I'm so thankful that they live so close. I'm thankful for the example Andrea is to me as a mom, wife, friend and importantly a woman of God. She is an encouragement to me, especially when she struggles. Don't worry Andrea, I'm not going to air any dirty laundry, but you know how some people deal with trials with strength and grace, that is Andrea. I'm sure like all of us she has her moments when she quietly cries in a closet (oh wait, I think that is just me?!), but in those moments she leans and trusts on the Lord. I love that about her. I'm thankful for the example she is to me!

Thankful Day 11-
Today we should all be thankful for all the men and woman of the military. It's because of them that we can have the freedom we experience today!
I'm especially thankful for this guy...
Travis is my brother-in-law that has been serving our country in Iraq and HE COMES HOME THIS MONTH!! Wahoo! We are so excited to have him home, he brings quite a fun dynamic to the family and we've missed him a lot. 

This little girl I'm sure is excited, she doesn't even know it yet! She is meeting Travis for the first time through Skype. Isn't technology great!?

Today, thank a veteran! They have sacrificed greatly for our freedom. These days, more than ever, we should be thankful for them!
