Thirteen years and many more to go.....




Thirteen years ago, I married the man of my dreams. We have been through more than most in our life together, we've watched our oldest child get dx with AML leukemia, watched her fight that evil disease for 14 months. We watched as the leukemia ravaged her body and then as GOD mercifully took her home to Heaven. We shockingly brought in our 2nd child in the first year of grief, and in just a couple months will welcome our 5th child. We've moved from Kansas to Germany to Virginia to Kansas and back to Germany. We've been through 5 deployments, 3 of them being Iraq, our longest for 14 months. We've spent more anniversary's apart than together, most of all we've grown in Christ together.

God blessed me with a husband who's far more patient than I am. Who's more forgiving, easy going, laughs easily, and adores me far more than I deserve to be, and most of all he LOVES me with all he has. I am so very blessed.
