77 Days!

11 weeks = 77 days!!!

The road hasn't always been easy...

at times, the mountain felt steep and difficult to climb...

but we always looked ahead and believed that our God would take care of the rest...

we've tried to make the most of each and every day...

and find the peace and stillness within! 

Deployments...they change your family dynamic in so many ways. They have a way of making you see and feel deeper then ever before. They have the ability to make your faith stronger and deeper. And yet they also have a way of challenging you to your core. I've had times where I've questioned our place in the Navy. I've had times where my patience was anything but steady. But one of the things that have always remained constant and true are my friends and family. They have been there when the days where overwhelming or when all I needed was a good laugh or cry. I can't say enough for the people that continually surround me with their love. In 77 days my best friend will be home. In 77 days Kennedy and Landon will have their amazing father by their side. In 77 days our life together will again be as one. I love you babe! Let the count down begin!!!

Yeah! 77 days! You can do it. I started counting down around this time too, now Dale will be home in 8 days! Too bad it is just for two weeks though. You can do it, stay strong and just think of how great your reunion will be. You are awesome and thank you for your sacrifice!

I am so looking forward to you posting Jared's homecoming pictures- it is wonderful the countdown can now begin:)
It will be a great time for celebration, and the knowing two and a half years of shore duty is on the horizon!!:)
