OMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!!

I can't even explain how excited I am!!
The VERY FIRST set of Care Packages arrived in The Stan!
You can all thank Bethany for supporting your troops!!
(Those of you that are in the process of sending yours- you can just pat yourselves on the back ;)


Two at once? Heck yeah!







Sometimes: I think that I should be in a career by now.
Always: I remember that I am right where I need to be...supporting my soldier.

Sometimes: Not having him here or not being able to talk to him at the exact moment that I want
 to, is hard.
Always: I don't let it show, because he needs me to be strong.

Sometimes: He knows I'm not as strong as the front I am putting up.
Always: He then goes out of his way to surprise me and send me special messages.

Sometimes: The amount of Care Packages that I send him add up $$.
Always: They are SO worth it. Like, I'm pretty sure it's more exciting for me to create and send them, than the thought of my own birthday....

Sometimes: Soldiers think that no one cares about them stateside...
Always: We are showing them that they are wrong, one care package at a time.

Sometimes: I am afraid to ask you all to participate in things, because I'm afraid to not get a response.
Always: You all surprise me with your support, and ESPECIALLY with these Care Packages!

Sometimes: I feel a tidge bit lonely.
Always: You, AMAZING bloggy friends, are the BEST support I could ask for.

My heart is full....






PS. The recapping will be back tomorrow!

If there is one good thing about deployments, it is care packages. I loved adding silly gifts in (they loved cheap plastic Army men to wage war on each others' desks when away & crappy holiday decor) with all the tasty snacks from home... Since we're at the same post, if you ever need anything, please let me know! And I love those pictures!

I love that you are sending care packages. Pleas send me the address- I would love to send a package to will or his group.

You always impress me with your sincere heart and amazing strength. I realize we have never had an actual phone conversation, but please feel free to call me anytime. I won't act like I know what you are going through, but I am an awesome listener!! I am so so proud of you. Keep it up lovely!

Kathryn said...

Yea!!!! That is awesome! I love the pictures too. I always wondered what they did when they received a care package. I agree the $$ adds up when sending care packages, but I would rather be broke than not send them. :)
