Angies Calvary

Angies Calvary Donate Click to donate every bit counts!

"The horses are well rested and the troopers are excited as Angie's Cavalry rides into action in the fight against MS.  With your overwhelming support and generoustiy, Angie's Cavalry raised over $3,000 last year.  Your kindness and generosity mean so much to Angie and I and we can't thank  you enough....

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will use funds collected from this year's Walk MS to not only support research for a cure tomorrow, but also to provide programs which address the challenges of people living with MS today. Because we choose to walk for those who sometimes can't, because we choose to donate to Walk MS , we are getting closer to the hour when no one will ever have to hear the words, "You have MS."
Crank up Garryowens, the cavalry rides again....Thank you again, we love you all and may God Bless you and may God Bless America!" John Young

What's for the future

One of the things I have never liked about our military life is not knowing what will happen next. At this point not only are we dealing with deployment but also reenlisting. It's very frustrating on me because I'm the type of person that needs to know what's next, I needs plans, I need an agenda! I know God knows this about me and always puts the same trials maybe I will learn to let go, have more trust in Him with this part of my life.

Care Packages:
Raul got the two packages that where sent from work for all the soldiers but he still has not gotten the one i sent for Valentines day. Its been two weeks already. Im hoping not every package takes this long. As soon as he gets it I will post a picture of we we put in it. Im already collecting items for our next package. This one will include some much needed hygiene supplies and just some stuff to make him smile. Raul makes the hygiene part somewhat difficult on me because I like buying what is on sale and cheep, he loves his brand name stuff and wont change it for nothing!

He is doing very good. We are thinking about about signing him up for soccer but we just have to see about 1. the cost 2. time. Since now I work I feel like we are definitely missing out on a lot of stuff we use to do. Some how we will make it work with the schedule we have now. Mason asked a bout daddy all the time and I tell him he is at work in Afghanistan. I need to get a world map so we can see where its at. He enjoys seeing pictures we get from daddy. He prays for daddy every night and it melts my heart to hear him  and the things he says. Preschool applications come out next week and Mason if chosen (lottery preschool) can start school in August...YIKES! Ill have a 4 year old, where has time gone!

The power of Prayer:
Recently we have had a couple of deaths and accidents with in our communities youth.  So if we can pray for our youth for healing, for them to love one another, and let go of any racial differences. In times like this we need unity!

Deployment starts

So ounce again we are going through a deployment. This time my hubby has been deployed to Afghanistan. It feels like our first deployment since its a new location and he is with a new unit. I do not know what to expect and it is a little scary. I feel like the toughest part of this deployment will be Mason. He is a very active and talkative three year old that now asks for daddy. Last deployment he had just learned how to say mommy and daddy! I have definitely been praying for wisdom in this area and raising Mason. He says daddy went on a plane and he asked to talk to him on the computer. He LOVES seeing daddy on the web cam and they just make silly faces at each other. I love hearing Mason laugh and have a good time with daddy. This week we went shopping to send daddy his first care package. Mason had a lot fun putting it together and decorating it.( I will post pic of what we put in it ounce Raul receives it.)

Im going to try and wright about our care packages and just deployment stuff during this year. I wont promises my consistency as you can tell from the time laps of the last blog, but ill try. Keep our family and the rest of the soldiers in your prayers as we go through this separation.
