Update on Steven

As most of you know, Steven is on his way home for his 18 days of leave. He's been traveling since Monday...mostly waiting for his flights...but he now has a schedule. He leaves tomorrow morning his time to fly to Kuwait (that's tonight our time) and is expecting to be home Saturday or Sunday! Yay! I'm so excited I can hardly breathe...or sleep! I think it's a 14+ hour flight from Kuwait to Atlanta, so I'm sure he's going to be dead tired by the time he gets home...and much in need of a shower! :-) hahaa. 2 Days...I cannot wait!!!!

On the same note, I'm feeling so blessed to have so many wonderful things in my life right now. My girlfriends here have helped me not only pass the time quickly, but have truly given me happiness and peace while Steven's been gone. These women are some of the strongest, most amazing wives, mothers and friends I have ever known, and I thank God every day for bringing them into my life. Also, my boss has been completely understanding and flexible with Steven's time home. He does not even want me to come into the office, because he knows how precious this time together will be. Not many employers have that mentality and I am more than thankful for his generosity. Our families have also gone over the top to show their love and support for us and for Steven's service. The care packages sent, letters, prayers, and support have given us so much strength and we are so grateful. Thank you and God Bless you all!
