Wow, life really doesn't turn out the way you expected it, does it? Yesterday I finished my Thanksgiving Day shopping. We had planned to participate in a program called "Operation Thanksgiving" where we host a military member,from the singles branch, who couldn't go home for the holiday. Everything was all set. Then life threw us a curve ball. Ben is leaving very early Wed. morning to go home to Oregon. A family emergency that is a very private matter. So I won't get to spend Thanksgiving with him. I am not upset. Not in the least. There is no doubt in my mind that he is where he should be. I will probably let the kids eat in the living room or something. That is there idea of a good time! :)
I wanted to say publicly, ( or somewhat publicly) how much I love Ben. He is so strong. He is amazing. He takes on so much and just handles everything so well. He is a good example to me because I can't handle anything!! I love him and support him and I know his family can make it through. Please keep them in your prayers.
For now, that is it. Have a good day!
