I LOVE YOU, your faith, your strength, your gripping writing skills, your courage to put your life out there for us to use as a source of inspiration! I just finished reading your book today and I can't even begin to tell you how thankful I am for your example. I love how much you love your husband and how much he passionately adores you. I love the sacrifices you both make on a daily basis to care for your children despite the pain and suffering. I love how you trust God and are striving to do His will.
Today when my husband called me from Afghanistan, I just poured out my gratitude for him, our love, our children, our health, the joy we feel when we're together and even when we're apart. I feel more capable to do hard things and to find a sweet sense of contentment in the small things. Even though my husband and I are apart right now and there are moments when I really wish he was here to help me parent my high energy boys, I feel the Lord strengthening me through many hands like all those who helped serve you in your time of need. I too know the Lord loves us and knows us individually. Your book reminded me of God's miracles and your faith reminded me to keep mine in constant alignment with God's will.
Love to you my new friend! How I wish we really could be friends as I know you would continue to inspire me!
