I've missed John a lot. However, I want to post a quick note about how I appreciate him and what he is doing as well. He is dedicated and he has always yearned to serve his country. He hasn't merely let that dream pass him by, he is doing everything he can to fulfill it despite his life not turning out quite the way he'd planned. I sometimes feel selfish and just want my hubby back, to be mine and only mine, but what a wonderful honorable thing he is doing. I know that he is so much happier to be fulfilling this desire he has had since he was a young boy. He is so willing to sacrifice and is helping me learn the blessings and hardships of sacrifice--not only for him, but for my country and freedoms.
So I want to say God bless America. God bless all the troops that have volunteered their time and efforts in behalf of all of us--and their families that sacrifice their loved ones to do so. I can see now that they sacrifice at least just as much. I'm grateful for the freedoms and protections we enjoy here in the U.S.A. Love you, honey.
