Safe at Home

We traveled 942 miles each way last week to Fort Leonard Wood, MO.

Jason graduated as a military police officer for the US Army and this mama breathed a sigh of relief as we loaded his {very heavy} bags to bring him home.

Is there any other place we, as mama’s, would rather have our children than safe at home?

It has been a wonderful weekend of family time, movies, snacks, laughing, and re-acclimating.

On Mother’s Day, my family and I will walk to raise awareness for children in the foster care system.

Children that don’t know what it is like to be safe at home.

I was that child.

Jason was that child before he came to us.

Shayla was that child.

The value of a safe and loving home is never taken for granted in my heart.  Millions of children around the world and in your own neighborhood lack safe and loving homes.

Will you join me in praying for them?

And, if you live locally, consider joining me for Walk with Me, Shepherdstown {if you want to join our walk team, click on Psalm 68:6 team}

and the counting of gifts continues {excerpted from my Joy Dare/gratitude journal}

~  a rental car that got 44 miles to the gallon on average!

~  time alone with my hubby as we traveled

~  watching my boy transformed into a young man

~  facebook chat and texting with the kids at home

~  my hubby’s mad navigational skills

~  a daughter that can hold down the fort while we are gone

~  temporary fillings for a yucky tooth

~  K-love radio, wherever we travel

~  clean rest stop bathrooms

~  coming home to my own comfy bed {and pillow}

What are you thankful for?
