1 year.

Friday, May 6, 2011

One year ago tomorrow, Joey was graduating from the police academy.

This picture totally and completely describes how proud I am, still to this day.

In the last year, he has seen more than I ever wished he would see.  We've had two officers killed in the line of duty.  Strange schedules and missed holidays, but we're adjusting.  We're learning how to be a family in the midst of all the craziness.  I'm fairly certain this has been the hardest year of my life, but it's all worth it just knowing that Joey is living his dream.

Joey, I'm so proud of you.  You are my rock, my hero, my love, and my best friend.  I'll continue to pray for you constantly - not only for your safety but that God would grant you all the desires of your heart.  I know you're living your dream and I could not be more happy to be living it with you.

Psalm 121

 1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
       where does my help come from?
 2 My help comes from the LORD,
       the Maker of heaven and earth.
 3 He will not let your foot slip—
       he who watches over you will not slumber;
 4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
       will neither slumber nor sleep.
 5 The LORD watches over you—
       the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
 6 the sun will not harm you by day,
       nor the moon by night.
 7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
       he will watch over your life;
 8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
       both now and forevermore.

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
