Another No Menu Monday....

There is no menu this week. 
There is only me doing my best to hold it together for the sake of my family as we prepare to say goodbye to daddy this week.  We have been so very blessed to have John home with us for the last almost 5 years, but now?  Duty calls.  And so, its time to put my brave face on and be all that my family needs me to be.  To support my husband as he so bravely says goodbye to his boys and to me so that he can fill the role that the Navy needs him to.  To hold my boys, pray like crazy for them and do all that I can to reassure them of their daddy's love for them.  To remind them daily how blessed they are to have a real life hero for a daddy! 
The life of a military family is not easy, but we have been immensely blessed on our military journey and we are so so very proud of John!  We appreciate any prayer you can spare for our family as we work through the emotion and adjustment that comes along with these goodbyes! 
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
~John 14:27~
