Leaving. Going. Gone.


{image courtesy of Google Images}


Leo will be leaving within the next few days.

He will be going to Haiti.

Please keep Haiti in your prayers.

For those who did not survive.

For the injured.

For the ones who lost everything.

For our volunteers doing everything in their power to help.

For our military men and women.

For the families of our military men and women.

For me and my girls.

I don't know how long he will be gone.

It could be weeks.

It could be months.

I've never been so proud of my husband as I am right now.

But at the same time my heart is hurting.

I'm going to miss my best friend while he's over there being a hero.

Thank you, Leo.

Thank you to everyone who is sacrificing to help.

My love and prayers are with you all.
