Across the oceans, love is still in motion

I normally don't like to post videos. After all, shouldn't blogging be about our words?
But I found the exception.
[There was not enough kleenex to go 'round]

One of my best friends [who just so happens to be pregnant] just found out that her husband is going to be deployed soon after his training. This means he will most likely miss the birth/first few months of his first child's life.

She is unusually strong about all of this.
Because she is way more amazing than I am [or ever ever will be.]

I'm so glad my dad is in no way affiliated with the military. I don't think I could handle it.
I love being able to call him, see him whenever I please.
I can't imagine it being any other way, I'm a daddy's girl.

[My favorite part is 5:33-5:48]

We forget that the soldiers fighting to keep us safe have families too. They have
lives outside of their duties. God bless them for doing what they do, all for us.


  1. So creepy, I just watched this video on facebook this morning. I made the husband watch it with me. We were crying. Lol.

  2. Some expressions need no words. Very beautiful video.

    armed forces family members are way more stronger than the forces..i personally feel so.

    lovely blog

  3. Omg that video was the saddest/happiest video ever!! I cried the entire ten minutes and a little bit after. I can not picture being in that situation at all especially as a child!!

  4. OMG. I've seen this before and cried my eyes out! I don't have any loved ones in the service but dang.... this explains it all!
