The events that took place at Fort Hood today hit close to home. That could have been our base. My husband, friends and acquaintances could have been among the dead or wounded. As a spouse, you are "trained" to worry and be nervous about what happens when they are deployed. At home, you are supposed to be SAFE, comfortable, worry-free, calm, relaxed. No one was prepared for today. I'm not saying their lives are more or less valuable than those who are wounded or KIA, this is just so stunning. It shook me to my core. I'm happy my husband came home safe to me today and I was able to hug him and kiss him and tell him how much I love him. I try not to take anything for granted and today's tragedy just refocused me on my journey to live every day like there is no tomorrow.

Thank you Jesus for another day on this planet!
