Today was the first day that my husband has actually
been "owned" by the army. 

Today was the first day I spent a whole Saturday here
by myself without a car since...a long time ago.

Today was the first day in a good long while
that my husband was more tired than me at 10:00 p.m.

Today was the first day John got to interact with the people
he is going to help through this chaplaincy program.

Today was the first day that my husband got to see
the evidence of the clearest reason God brought us here.

Today was the first day of many where I'll listen to my
husband tell as many stories in such an enthusiastic way
as he did today. 

was a good day.


  1. Hey Laura!
    I stumbled on your blog a while ago and noticed that your husband is joining the Army. I just wanted to say that we're 'in' and if you have any questions I would love to try and help if I can. Just wanted to let you know! :)

    1. Katie! I don't know if you'll see this, so I'll message you later today, but I am excited that you wrote here! Thanks for your encouragement; I'll definitely let you know when I need some help or advice!
