Happy Thanksgiving!

I wanted to jot a quick note to go ahead and wish you all a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving. I will update later on the events of our day! ((Hugs)) to you all!!

Hey everyone, We had a great Thanksgiving. I got to talk to Jason before we headed over to my moms. He did get a Thanksgiving meal prepared there at the base, however it just wasn't the same being away from home. I love and miss him soooo much. We talked about how before we knew it he would be home for Christmas (for two weeks).

The kids and I went over to my moms. Mother cooked a big dish of Chicken and Dressing (and giblet gravy), Greens, Green Beans, Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, and Rolls and had Cranberry Sauce. I made Sweet Potato casserole and macaroni and Cheese. My brother and his wife brought deserts! yumm yumm. It was all so good! We had a great time and it was so nice to get together.

I have so many things to be thankful for, my relationship with God, my family and friends, and my health. Thank you God for all you are and all you do.

Hello there.
I've been reading your blog for about a week now, and I just wanted to say hello. I'll try not to bore you with the random details, but I just wanted to tell you that my future husband is leaving for Iraq, soon. (Ie: Sat). He is going to be gone for 1 year. I am facing so many different emotions right now, that some words don't even describe. He is with the 101st airborne, 506th infantry at Fort Campbell in KY. Long story short, we were best friends in high school (never dated although I knew that he had feelings for me)and went our seperate ways in college. 6 years later we've found eachother (I found him, he's been looking for me) and we are more in love now, than either has been in the past. I was to be married and 3 mos. before the wedding, my fiance called it off. He has been married 2 times since being in the army and has a little boy about 7 mos. old. Can't describe what it's like to be in love with your best friend. As I said though, he's leaving soon for 1 year. I guess that will be the test - since we've found each other again, to see if we can (more, I) can stand this email relationship for a year.
Anything comforting that you may want me to know, any ideas on how to deal day to day, thoughts or ideas of what to send... would be greatfully appreciated.
My email is skjamie25@hotmail.com
I'd like a new friend who can shed some light on the situation, the feelings I may be going through.. But, you have a busy family life and I understand if you don't have time...
I'm happy for you that your husband will be home for christmas, I can only imagine what you are feeling like...
Happy Thanksgiving as well...
