In shock, these are the only words I can come up with to describe how I am feeling right now.
I just found out that one of my bloggy friends and fellow mil spouse lost her husband recently. He was killed while serving our country over in Afghanistan. Rachel is a young wife and mother who is now dealing with the unthinkable
I can remember reading Mrs. P's blog and following along with her pregnancy and the birth of her daughter. That whole time her hubby was deployed and I remember thinking of how strong this girl was, how courageous she was and how positive she was to deal with all that by herself, all the while awaiting her hubby's return and even organizing a sock drive for him and his unit. A few days ago she posted about her new tattoo which was of the yellow ribbon symbolizing the support for our troops. I just loved this girl's amazing outlook on life and again marveled on her positivity.
Today I am staring at my computer screen, in tears as I read her brave post about her husband's death. How unfair it is that one should lose a husband so young. How unfair it is that her daughter will never know his father and how unfair it is that the homecoming you were awaiting for for months on end is not the homecoming you had hoped for.
My heart goes out to Rachel and her daughter Ariana. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. her husband gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. If you would like to stop by here blog go HERE
