"A soldier doesn't fight because he hates what is in front of him. A soldier fights because he loves what he left behind." - unknown

"God is our refuge and strength. He will protect us and make us strong" (ps 46:1). For those who will fly today, for those who are there now, and for those who will soon join the fight, Lord, shield them from all evil, strengthen their hearts, and bring them home safely.

This Is My Blog - Featured Blogger

Whenever I check the stats on the blog I am always amazed at how many people in so many different countries read the stories of our family. I am amazed at how many people from all over this world want to hear this story either because they can relate to it so much or because they can't. I feel so blessed that for whatever reason, people want to share in our journey.

When I look at these stats the country that views our story the second-most is Canada. When C was in Kandahar he worked with Canadians every week. For a brief period they lived at the same facility.

When this Canadian Army Wife emailed me I was SO excited to get to 'know' her. First off, she's hilarious. Second off, she's real. Probably two of my favorite things in a blogger. I asked her to email details about herself so that I could feature her and she made me laugh while I read them. I want to share a few of them and then I want you to hop over to her blog and visit her "about me" page which introduces her far better than I ever could.

Here is what she told me:

I am a Canadian military wife. (Yup, we totally have an Army here.  True Story.) 

We’ll call my soldier DH.
We’ve been married 10 years.
We’ve got 3 kids, I call them Freckles, Drama and Monster.
I planned to have a career, I really did.  But for now I’m a mom.  Which is much harder than the career I planned.
DH has recently decided he is a career soldier.  I could have told you that years ago, but it’s nice that he knows that now too.

So my Canadian readers, THANK YOU for reading and for sharing in our story. If there are other wonderful Canadian bloggers out there please leave your blog url in the comments and hop on over and enjoy This Is My Blog!
