Not goodbye....

Life. It can sure become crazy and full in a moments notice.

Mine sure has.

There are a lot of "feeeeelings" going on over here at Chez' Owens with all of the changes about to happen. None that I feel right blogging about. It is never easy for a military family to have a parent go off for an extended period of time. Going to war? One of the hardest things ever.

I think it's time to take a little break from blogging. We are going to spend our remaining time together as a family doing.......I guess just doing stuff. Maybe a picnic here or there. Walks. Laying in bed and talking about nothing. Laughing. Holding hands when the "worrieds" get the best of us.

This blog has been a wonderfully amazing experience. I've met some of the best women. Thank you for taking time out of your busy days to leave a comment or two. Thank you even more for opening your hearts and sharing bits of your lives. I hope we can continue to email back and forth and I will definitely still visit your own blogs. For now though I'm going to keep quiet on mine to be with my family.

I do have a huge favor to ask.....Please keep our military families in your thoughts and prayers. There are so many of us out there who are getting our loved ones ready to be shipped out. We see the big green duffel bags packed with war type things. We sit next to our daughters as they try and process what this will mean for them. We deal with the nightmares that something bad will happen to their daddy's. We deal with our own worry that we can't share but hide in the secret places of our hearts. We cherish the times when we are out eating lunch with our husbands.....they with their uniforms on...and a stranger comes over to shake their hand. To say thank you for serving. It means so much more then you will ever know. And please don't forget me. I'll be back after things settle down a bit. I just have some hugging and back rubbing and big dinner making and long walks to take.

Big hugs to everyone,
