It's time for a girls night

If I were to sit down and start writing a list of all the things I am thankful for there wouldn't be a notebook with enough pages. When David and I first found out that we were going to be stationed in Norfolk we had peace only because we know that we have a big God and we were clinging to the promise that He had a plan. I never could have guessed what He had up his sleeve for us.

My last post was written just before David came home. It was more of an emotional drill to try and figure out what was really going on in my head. Deployment is tough, I'm not going to sugar coat it, but just because your spouse has to leave on a ship for months on end doesn't mean that God does, too (a lesson I am still trying to remind myself of). One of the things that David and I pray for and hope for during our deployments is that we will look for the blessings and not let the days go by unappreciated. The blessings were not just showered on us, but more like fire house in the face sprayed at us. So let me show you a couple of my blessings. These pictures were taken last night at my friend Val's house. I just love these girls. Looking at these pictures brings so much joy to my heart. I can hear the giggles and Christmas music, smell the wonderful food, feel the smiles and just how much I love being with these girls. There were a lot of ladies there but for all of you who couldn't make it we missed you! We had a great time enjoying each others company, making crafts, eating dessert and just being girls! Love you all! (And thank you for letting me shove the camera in your faces!)
