I feel so blessed to have been able to spend time this summer at our home away from home with my parents. My parents have a cozy log cabin up in the mountains of North Carolina. My mom is the administrator of a non profit Christain ministry that hosts summer camps for children, teens and college and career. We have had the pleasure of coming here for many years, mostly spending summers while David would be away or when we were in between moves. We literally have stayed here for an entire summer while we have been homeless! We have come to know and love the families that work for the ministry and enjoy being loved on while we are here. And I LOVE being loved on and having people LOVE on my girls! And of course this year is no different, I am enjoying the love that we are shown and the support that we have received with David being deployed!
This summer has been an amazing visit and a time of rest for me. The mountains are always so peaceful to me and the view at my parents home is absolutely amazing! I get to sleep at night by listening to the rushing waterfalls in the background. Can you say HEAVEN!!
AND I sleep through the night here! WooHoo because that is major for me! There is just something about being at mama and daddy’s, no matter how old I am!
David is doing very well in Afganistan. I am very thankful for today’s technology and how we are able to facetime daily IF his wifi connection is working! We have some challenges with the connection, but most days we get to “see” David and that really helps, even if it takes 4 or 5 attempts! He is working a lot, 18 hours a day, 7 days a week. I guess David’s rest is not a priority during war!
Thank you to those of you who have left me facebook comments, comments on my blog, and sent me emails to show your support for my family, husband and the Military. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Please continue to pray for our troops and for my husband’s safety.
