Thank You.

To Everyone.

Thank you. So many of you have been an incredible support system for my family while Sam has been overseas. There is no way I can even begin to thank each of you by name (because, inevitably, I will leave someone out, and I would hate to leave anyone out), but please know that we are forever thankful for you.

For those of you who helped me out while I was finishing up my M.Div., whether you watched Nathaniel for me during my crazy scheduling, or simply threw up some much needed prayers and listening ears: Thank you!

For those of you who adopted me and my crazy brood into your families for special occasions and weekly meals: Thank you!

For those of you who went out of your way to listen to me when I was having one of those, "OhdearhelpmeGodI'mgoingtokillmychildren!" days: Thank You!

For the many, many people who brought me meals, took my children, cleaned my apartment (scooped my cat poop!) in the weeks after I had Aaron when I wasn't "supposed" to lift anything heavier than him (technically, not even him): Thank You!

For those of you who prayed and prayed that I would find a job in my field after Sam came home: Thank You!

Thanks so much for being there. I cherish your friendships, our talks, the shoulders to lean on, the encouragement that I could do it. My family and I thank you.

p.s. Sam will be here Sunday evening. I'm picking him up at the airport and we are disappearing for a few days.

Thanks for maintaining your blog and keeping us posted with what's going on in your lives. It's been great keeping track of you and the kids in spite of the distance, time difference, and over-flowing schedules. Enjoy your Homecoming! We'll talk when the dust settles.

You do have a lot to be thankful for just as your family has to be so thankful for you. You do yourself proud.

I'm glad Sam is home and that he is done with this tour. I hope he's done with the army, period.
