Works for Me Wednesday: Stationary Hubby!

I found this wonderful new blog, rocks in my'll have to check it out. Today's Works for me Wednesday is inspired by my good friend Jenn. Her husband just returned today from Iraq. After knowing her as I have, I can only imagine the excitement that her and her children are feeling knowing that he is safe and sound and back at home.

What works for me is, having a husband that doesn't travel. Military wives and single moms for that matter are amazing women. Eric has been out of town for 3 days training for his new job and it's been crazy. I've been taking care of the kids all by myself, and consoling Mason who's been miserably missing his daddy. I can't imagine having my husband gone for months and months at a time and to add to that knowing that they are risking their lives to protect our country. wow.

So to my wonderful friend Jenn, you are an amazing friend and an amazing momma to your three beautiful children. Your husband is definitely a hero to our country. However, you and your positive attitude, your ability to handle it all alone and make it work for you.....well, that makes you one hell of a hero to me! You're an astonishing woman!
