THIS is What It's ALL About, People!

 This is my friend, Kati, and her hottie hero husband, Mike, and their kids. Mike just returned home from Afghanistan tonight. He's been gone a looong time and it is by far not his first deployment. I admire Kati, and other men and women like her around the country. It's hard being a parent on the best of days with your partner by your side. But she, and so many others, do the same things we do while their partner is fighting overseas. And I imagine that it has to be hard on the kids. Isn't this a beautiful picture? It just chokes me up.

Thank you, Mike, for all you do for us. Welcome Home!!


  1. I also teared up reading this post. What an amazing family. It takes a strong woman to go on raising her family while her husband fights for our country.
    Thank you Mike, for keeping our country safe.

  2. Love this. Thanks for sharing it. :)

  3. yes, Thank you Mike!

    I love these sorts of posts!
