It has been two months since our last entry and I hardly know where to start. I can honestly say that 2010 is breezing along rapidly with many slips and hoorahs along the way.
We have a brother-in-law who is serving our country in Iraq. He was able to come home for a 2-week leave in January but had to return to his tour of duty. Pauline and Wade have two young children. Wade's decision to serve overseas in Iraq is a great sacrifice on both of their parts. We are blessed that God has kept Wade safe and out of harm's way. We will be even happier by the end of the year when Wade's tour is up. We love and support Wade and so grateful to him and all the men and women who are serving our country so valiantly for our country's safety and for the freedom of other countries.
Lynn and I continue to plod on with our lives. Our lives don't ever appear to be as busy as the rest of our families, but we often look at ourselves and ask, 'where has the time gone'? Lynn is still contracting his service with the Army Reserve. My assignment with Hartford Insurance ended on Friday. I feel sad for the lovely faces and friends that I will no longer see on a daily basis; at the same time, I am anxious and excited for what lies ahead.
Lynn and I are so grateful and feel so very blessed to have our family and friends. They enrich our lives, they continue to strengthen us by their remarkable examples, they love us unconditionally, and our family and friends support us in all our professional and personal endeavors.
As March 2010 rolls around, Lynn and I can honestly say, "WE ARE INDEED BLESSED!"
