I had a surreal moment last week, one of those moments I know I'll remember forever...I had walked HK (our 3 yr old granddoll) to the park which is about a block from their house on base. There were 8-10 kids playing around. At 5 pm each day the national anthem is played over huge speakers on base. I was chasing after HK when the LOUD music began, but immediately my surroundings felt different. I looked around me to see that all the "play" had ceased as each child stood at attention, facing the direction of the music, hand over heart. A little ashamed, I quickly assumed the position. The sky was blue, the sun was shining, and a gentle breeze blew my hair. The little 6 yr old girl who was standing close by cut her eyes in my direction and said, "You know what that means? It means the Americans are coming!". I felt my eyes grow misty with pride.🇺🇸
There are sad/bad things that happen every day, but there is still quiet beauty and goodness that live among us. And for that, I am thankful.
Many of you have asked about our youngest daughter. Many of you have prayed for her too. Thank you so much!! She is out of the hospital now. She was in a private hospital, not a VA hospital (someone asked). They have yet to connect with a doctor who seems willing to run the needed tests to make a solid diagnosis. They are trying to get an appointment with a different neurologist soon. We believe finding a good doctor will be the key to her medical situation. She has insurance, so can't understand the hesitance to run the necessary tests...Thanks for your on-going prayers & concern.❤️
