Take it while it lasts

This morning I stumbled out of the bedroom and saw my sweet girls snuggling together and watching "Maya and Miguel". The oldest lit up when she saw me and said, "You are the best Mommy in the whole wide world!!!!" Is that not better than coffee??? As I tucked them in, I told them I thought they were the best girls in the whole wide world. The oldest smiled and said, "Well if Daddy calls tell him that he is the best Daddy in the whole wide world!"
The rest of the day was good, but not so sugary sweet. We did home-school and I was excited to see how much progress we are making! Also, we are excited because in two days my husband will be home again! This Saturday he starts The Gauntlet. Basically, the past four months of training do not matter unless he passes those 10 days. Please be keeping him in your prayers daily!

Maybe you should have them sign a document along these lines, just in case you need to produce it later? :)

I want to hear the loooong story ... I'm almost tempted to use the telephone .... that's how badly I want to hear it. :)

Lord, I ask that You will continue to bless and guide Cliff. Help him through these next crucial days, and may he end up exactly where he needs to be. Amen.

I do understand your pain in having your husband gone all the time. I didn't realize how hard it was until he was home every night (if that makes sense). But I didn't have kids to take care of. I'm thinking of you and praying for you often.
