When I find something that makes me happy, I love to pass it on and share the joy!

I hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful holiday that celebrates the founding of this nation of freedom. I want to give a big birthday wish to my Sexy Beast!!!
The 82nd Airborne Choir is an LGOP (little group of paratroopers) here at Bragg that recently performed at my brother's residency graduation. His amazing wife was able to record two of the songs they performed, and today is the perfect day to share them with you.
So, grab some kleenex, and God Bless the USA!

After almost eleven years of being an Army wife, I am truly ready to move after three to four years in the same place. As I have said before, we have been exceptionally lucky when it comes to duty stations. Eighteen months after our wedding, we boarded a plane and spent the next three years on the glorious island of O'ahu. Three years later we headed to the swamps of Northwest Florida where we spent almost six years. Then, the boys and I headed to North Carolina last year. I have made all kinds of friends in our journey, and am thankful for every one of them.
One of the main reasons that lead to our decision for moving to NC while the hubby went to school, was that my brother was stationed there. Most people have the opportunity to grow up with family close by, but I never have. And until this last year, I didn't know what I was missing.
We found a house that was only 3 miles away, and I secured a job and a nanny. Although my Sexy Beast was away, there was always the comfort of knowing I had family close by. I had someone to spend holidays, birthdays, and lonely days with...until this weekend.
I have been fortunate enough to attend my brother's High School, College, and Medical School graduations, and finally, his Residency Graduation. It was a gorgeous day and I would have enjoyed it more if I wasn't already mourning their impending departure.
