Air Force wife

My best friend growing up is an Air Force wife. I was thinking today that I do not tell her enough, or have ever told her, how much I appreciate the sacrifices that she is making. Bre has been my little sis since we met when I was 9 years old. We have been there for each other through graduations, weddings and babies. Sadly I do not get to spend much time with her because she lives in Texas where her husband is stationed. She will faithfully follow where ever the military sends him and she will do it with pride. I see first hand how hard it is for her and her husband to be so far from family in Pennsylvania. It is easy to forget to thank your close friends and family for their sacrifices. I am thankful for my little sis and am grateful for what she and her husband are doing for our country.

proud moment

I was in the car with my 6 year old daughter after picking her up from gymnastics today. We started talking about Easter and the upcoming Easter egg hunt. We were talking about what is usually in the eggs, candy. She started to get upset because she is not able to have sugar, which breaks my heart. Then she stopped and said its okay mommy we can just send my candy to the girl that fights for us. She won't have an Easter egg hunt.

I was so proud! She is so thoughtful. She is my inspiration for wanting to do more to help those that are sacrificing time with their families to protect and serve our country.
