Need A Reason To Count Your Blessings Today??

So I just came across this blog entry via Goodnight Moon
and I have been sobbing a solid half hour.
It's the post of a woman's journey over the past few weeks from when she was notified (I know we all DREAD that word) that her husband was killed in action on July 7th this year
(Yes, that was just this month).
He is a Marine Corps SSgt and was only two weeks from coming home from his 
6th deployment.

That's really all I can say. 
It's a beautifully written post 
and my heart broke for her.

I can't imagine missing your love for 7 months
and then the first time you see them again is with a flag draped over them.
I can't imagine.
I mean, I have nightmares about it all the time,
but I can't imagine.

So please go and read her story and offer her a 
for both her service and grace, as well as the life of her husband and the freedoms his sacrifice are allowing you to enjoy. 
From one military wife to another,
I will be praying for them.
And I hope so will you.


  1. I could barely read the post because I was crying so much. My heart goes out to them!

  2. Oh my, what a story of strength but sadness as well. I can only imagine what she was going through. Thanks for sharing! Hugs!

  3. Thank you for sharing. I haven't stopped crying, but her story reminded me of all the things I take for granted.
