2008 is coming to a close...
It's hard to believe 2008 is almost over. The year went by so quickly. It's ironic how we started the year with the birth of our precious baby and ended it with the passing of Rob. I truly pray that 2009 will bring us much happiness. I also pray that it brings all of you much happiness and the rest of Rob's unit home safely. There is not a day goes by that I don't think of his men and all the other military men and women. Even though I knew something like this could happen to Rob, I never truly thought it would. The chances of this happening to HIM was almost like the chances of winning the lottery. So, this opens my eyes to all the danger our men and women put themselves in for our freedom. About a month before Rob was injured, my friend Ali was really worried about her husband who was with Rob. I remember telling her "Ali, of all the soldiers in Afghanistan, what are the chances something will happen to OUR husbands?" Wow. No longer can I be nieve. My friends are in the same situation I was and I pray that they NEVER have to go through what I'm going through. All I can say now is that they now have one of God's Warriors watching over them. I've enclosed some pictures of the girls from Christmas. Eva was so worn out she fell asleep in her exersaucer and Julia was able to make her very first snowman. So many people were so generous with them on Christmas. The girls were able to have a really nice Christmas. So, thank you again for everything you've all done. The comments left really pick me up when I need it the most and the girls can feel the love from even people they've never met. May God continue to bless you in 2009. I'll write again "next year"!!
