HOME

Home. One beautiful word, many beautiful moments.  Mike came home after almost nine months on May 11, a little after noon.  We could hardly take the anticipation, but he finally arrived safely and we found his arms soon after. Thanks so much to Lexie and Sommer for taking photos and video. Share in our joyous day!


Countless thank yous to all of our friends and family that have prayed and supported us through this deployment. We are so grateful to have you in our lives. And lots of prayers for all those still serving and their families. May they come home safe. And soon.

Thanks for the "help" getting me through that. After I hung up with you, that last picture put me over the edge again.

Oh Casey! That was beautiful. I am crying so hard Hannah and Madeline are concerned--are you happy Mommy? or are you sad? Haha. When Mike was climbing out of the plane it seemed like f-o-r-e-v-e-r . . . I kept saying, "hurry, hurry."

You all looked gorgeous! I know you are thrilled and I am so happy for you all! God is good!

Casey, I had heard how wonderful your video was from Ruth Ann who heard from Linda. Now it's not on your blog anymore and I'm so sad to not get to see it. I'm going to check your FB page. Maybe it's there. Praising Jesus that you and Mike are back together.
