Shout outs

The thing about the military is, we live in interesting places make the coolest friends ever. Then the down side. We move. I actually do not mind the moving. I cry just like everyone else when I am leaving my friends but I am geared up for new places and new friends. We have a lot of great friends in Louisiana. One family that we were really close with reads this blog all the time and just sent my husband a picture. I love watching him when he gets pics from these guys. He just sits in front of the screen smiling! This guy is his best friend. They are our family.
I wanted to put this picture up since he is obviously trying to make my husband cry that he can't get on the lake. I do have the pics of my husband going deep sea fishing. He says it just isn't as fun. I really just thought one type of fishing is as boring, I mean fun as the next.

Don't let his gruff exterior fool you, he is the sweetest man. The very best guy for anyone to call a best friend. His wife is mine, (feel better, we are praying for you!)
When we moved to LA, I really thought we would never ever go back there. Not even to visit. Then we got entangled in the lives of so many there. Our church, our friends. Now we will making many, many trips back. Sometimes when you meet people they are just friends. Other times they become part of you extended family.
Thank goodness I don't have to send Christmas presents to all the people I consider family.

Ya know, as much as I complained about Ft Polk, I would consider going back(did I just type that?)The girls really miss their friends there. I guess it was their last home-being here is nice but seems like an interruption-ya know--only a year-dont wanna get to close to anyone. Military sure has its ups and downs!
