Who Supports Obama? Military Wives Among Others

As you can probably guess by now, I'm voting Obama on November 4th.

No, I'm not interested in a debate with you, should you disagree it's unlikely you'll change my mind, and I doubt I'll change yours.

*I do want to make this disclaimer, I am not voicing my husbands voting choice here, these opinions may or may not be his, but that is information that he chooses to keep to himself*

As a military family I have often found myself on the end of several attacks basically stating that by supporting Obama I clearly have not given any thought to our service men and women. Riiiiiiiiiiiight.

It is becoming ever more apparent that the military life my husband has chosen is one he wants to extend and continue on for an indeterminate amount of time. He enjoys and appreciates what it has to offer and the opportunity it provides for him to learn and give back to his community and country. So obviously I have given thought to our men and women serving the country and those who might choose to do so in the future.

Despite what the anit-Obamas may tell you, I am not alone in being a military family that supports Obama for our next president. Please take a peek at what these high-ranking, educated and informed military officials have to say about him.











Even U.S. Army Gen. David H. Petraeus statements have alighed with Obama’s foreign-policy proposals.

October 15th

October 15th is the National Day of Remembrance of Pregnancy and Infant Loss. at 7 pm in all time zones, anyone who has been affected by infant loss is welcome to join in lighting a candle to honor that loss.

You can visit the organizations website to learn more.

Since both my babies each spent a large chunk of time in the NICU, with Lilli being 5 weeks early, and Conner battling some freak GI infection that we believe he picked up in the terrible horrible awful hospital in which he was born.. In either case, I was at one point faced with the possibility that I might not get to take my babies home.

If you get a chance, please say a prayer or send positive vibes, or whatever you do, for all the families that have had the unfortunate experience of losing a child, and then go hug your babies.

On a related note, I did receive my notification email stating I had been accepted as a photographer with NILMDTS. As you can imagine this will be a very challenging opportunity but one that means a great deal to me, so I'll take your prayers too.

F-it Don't Vote

It's That Time!!!!!

Harvest Homecoming booth days opens today! We were hoping to go tonight but the Bean came down with a fever last night that's lasted into today so we may have to postpone till later in the week.

I'm a wee bit misty because Adam and I have gone to the Harvest Homecoming together every year for the last 12 years, and since he's gone to Ft. Sill, well it's a little hard to get that worked out.

If you go have a good time, and have some Chicken N Dumplings for us!
