Like Yesterday

In some ways my husband's deployment to Iraq seems like forever ago and in other ways, it seems like yesterday. It was a year that affected me (and him) tremendously. I am thankful for how hard my husband worked during his 10 years in the Army. I am incredibly thankful (beyond words) that he came home safely from Iraq.


I know people that just got back from Iraq, that are there now and that are going in a few months. My husband wrote just a brief post about what Veteran's Day means to him. I didn't ask him to write it but it was insightful to me. Read Seth's reflections on Veteran's Day. Feel free to leave him a note. Above all, thank God for our service men and women. If you can, thank a solider today. Either way, honor Veteran's day by praying for one.
