I seen this posted on my friends facebook page this morning and just had to share it with you all here. Photo description: by Seal of Honor Please meet Landon. His dad Marine LCPL Carpenter made the ultimate sacrifice while serving with the 3/8 in Afghanistan earlier this year, just a month before his son was born. NEVER forget the price of freedom. Seeing this photo breaks my heart but in all honesty this is the price we pay for our freedom. Please take a minute to stop and say "Thank You" to a soldier. If it wasn't for them (8 comments)
It's never too late to be who you might have been. ~George Eliot
How true is this? Sometimes we get in these ruts and think why haven't I done what I wanted to do or why am I not the person that I thought I was going to be. Well pull yourself out of those ruts and move forward. Each day is a new day and with each new day you have a new chance to be the person you always wanted to be and do those things you always wanted to do. (0 comments)

My husband was able to come home from Hawaii last month for a visit. While here, my son and I decided to take him to a place we had found a few weeks before.

I am so thankful for the time we get to spend with him when he is (4 comments)
