This past year has been a rough one for my crew. We have all moved at least once, and there have been more than a few big bumps in the road. But...
My Sean has managed to balance an enormous workload, and time with his girls. Never complaining, always there for his family.
Bailey, our chatter box, is doing much better.
Jacey has developed a real talent for soccer.
Marymine went thru a big bump, and managed to keep her head, and be there for her kids with amazing strength and grace.
Ali is the most focused young lady I have ever known. Lauren has a wonderful sense of humor.
Colt is a steadfast heart that keeps things running.
Cody, the devil doc corpsman to his very soul, has been on two deployments down range, this year alone.
It hasn't been an easy year for any of them. They are all kind, good, tough, and honest and honorable to the bone, and I'm proud of them.
To the rest of the world they may be ordinary people, to me they are the world.
I have written our troubles on scraps of paper to burn away in the New Year's Eve bonfire, still believing in a future filled with love and laughter and family.
