The Other Shoe

Well I had to mention it didn't I? I was recently worried that T would get deployed and now the day has come. He told us about a week ago that he got word that he will be deploying on Oct 11th. Just after middle boy's 12th birthday. We will surely miss him and I wonder how I will manage to do (by myself) all the things he does for me around here. Not to mention the sad fact that I will miss his company. But I have been aware of a feeling of calm that I can't understand ever since he told me. I know I am being comforted by the Holy Spirit. Troy has felt that same Spirit of calm. I know we will be watched over. I know we will be given opportunities to grow. I know everything will be alright... If your feeling sad about our news, please watch 'Bulbous Bouffant" in my last post. It has done miracles in our family this week! Laughter is the best medicine!!!

I have really enjoyed reading about your family on your blog. You can see ours at I am totally impressed at how you've kept yours up to date. We need more pictures of our newest daughter, Lauren, almost 11 months.
