Godspeed Jason.

We got to spend some time yesterday with our friend Jason and his family as he gets ready to deploy to Iraq this next week.

Jason & Megan (and kids) : thank you for your friendship (and that awesome pulled pork), your service and your sacrifice.

Jason : we wish you well and look forward to your safe return in a year.

    After all the well wishes and good-bye hugs over the weekend, seeing it in print really brings it all home. I'm grateful to all our friends (and yours here!) keeping us in their thoughts. May the next year go quickly!
    Thanks for the lovely message, and thank you so much for coming!
    I have a couple of Star Wars action figures here looking for their Jedi master. Let me know a good time to drop them off! :)

    My thoughts and prayers are with Jason and his family. Our service members and their families make enormous sacrifices...I know because my husband retired from the Air Force 14 months ago. He served 20 years and deployed three times. All the prayers and support during those times did make a difference, but it's still so hard.

    Ali,
    I'm don't know how to send you my favorite baby girl quote and because you are so generous with your quotes, here it is:
    A mother who radiates
    self-love and self-acceptance actually VACCINATES her daughter against low self-esteem. Naomi Wolf.

    I had a niece and nephew there at the height of the war in Iraq. It was terrifying but God was good and they both returned without too many scratches. She was almost caught in a road bomb, but was unhurt. I prayed for a safe return every day and I also prayed for the families of the ones who serve. I pray for Jason and men and women like him who serve and sacrifice their time away from home to keep us all safe. Thank God for you.
