I know, I know. I've been terrible at updating, but hey it's been kind of quiet on Chad's end. He's no longer up at the AF base, but now down with the rest of his unit. I still have this amazing amount of peace about all of it.

Chad told me that one of the good things about being down there is that he keeps busier, he's going on missions, he has PT 3 times a day, and since going there has lost weight, because he has less time. I hope him being as busy as he is, will make the time go by quicker for him.

I have really missed him so much this week. Monday marked 6 yrs since our daughter died. It seems unreal to both of us. He called on Monday. It was really nice to hear his voice, although I could hear the sadness in it, but well mine was pretty sad as well. Friday will be 6 yrs since we last saw our precious girl, closed the casket, and said goodbye to that precious little body that we helped create, no more painting toe nails, kissing those pretty little feet, no more tight hugs, cuddles from her, etc.

I know my pain of our daughter's death, but I can't say I know Chad's fully...he was her DADDY, I was her MOMMY. Two important, but very different roles and no one can lay claim on another's grief. Please keep Chad in your prayers as he does his best to deal with the events that we lived through 6 yrs ago.

I ask that you keep Chad in your prayers for his safety now more than ever. I have not talked to him since Monday, he had planned to call me on Tuesday and well he hasn't. I don't worry, because I know no news is good news, and that once he has a chance, he will call me. He was hoping to have internet in his room this week, if he does, that'll be so great. We'll be able to webcam with each other more often, etc.

Thank you for your continued prayers, love, and friendship.


God Bless
