From a tiny acorn grows a mighty oak...

Hubby doing his impression of an oak tree....
I am sure you have heard the old saying,
"From a tiny acorn grows a mighty oak...
it is what is inside that counts."
Well, let me just say that hubby has inside what counts.
He is one of the greatest men I have ever had the privilege to meet.
He has what so many these days do not.
He has character, loyalty, perseverance, and the desire to always do what is right.
He has the heart of a warrior...
he was willing to give up over a year of his life to defend and protect this great county.
What a legacy to leave your children...a lesson of selflessness and bravery.
I know the transition home has to be difficult at times for him.
I can see it every once in a while.
But he has done it with such calm grace.
He tries to put me first, concerned with how I feel and how I am adjusting.
I look at him and know that he loves me.
Sometimes it literally takes my breath away...HE literally takes my breath away.
How did this happen to me?
How did I get so lucky?
What did I do to deserve this?
Whatever the answers, I just thank God for hubby...
I thank God for us...
I thank God for my mighty oak.
