One very sad and tragic day here

Everyday we are counting the days down when Leland is coming home from Iraq. Everyday we want him to be back home safe with us. In less as a month he will be. Finally. After a year of deployment.

Yesterday was the one day I was glad he was not home and just being at work.

I never thought I would ever say that.

When you have a loved being gone and deployed you always worry. No matter how much you get told or not. You never really know what happens where he is, he won't tell you, but you don't expect a disaster happening like yesterday right here. Here is just training. Here is home. Here is your time with your family.

Yesterday  was different. One person changed the life of lots of families. Mine was lucky. So many were not and lost a loved one.

Think of all the people and their families who died and got injured yesterday at Ft. Hood, TX.


  1. Hello
    I thought of you, the moment I heard about the shooting on the news here in Denmark.
    And here I cry when I read your blog. It is quite wrong that we should be glad that your husband is in a country is at war.
    How must it be hard days for you.
    Nice to your husband and their father will soon be home again.

    Many hugs here from Denmark

  2. Absolutely heartbreaking. You are all in my thoughts, and I too am thankful.
