It's been a bad week over there, which of course leads to a lot of worrying over here. I worry for my husband, I worry for our unit, I worry for everyone. My husband has witnessed things I would never wish on anyone. I was dreading this part of the deployment--where he is in command and would see events that would stick with him for the rest of his life. I do not know how to comfort him, but I am trying. He bears a weight on his shoulders that I will never understand myself. I only hope that I am able to help him with that burden and ease the struggles and pain he faces. My prayers continue daily for all of our troops, our wounded, and our fallen.
While all of the above is central to my family, there are so many families in Japan that are suffering and struggling right now. I pray that God will show them his grace and that they will find comfort in Him. I would love to know if you hear about ways we can help, so please share if you know anything.
I am hoping that the next week is a better one for everyone. Sorry for such a somber post. After the past few days there just isn't much good to write about at the moment, but I know that things will look brighter soon. I promise my next post will be a much happier, or at least filled with funny stories of my crazy and cranky boys if nothing else.
