Day 12 - 30 Days of Gratitude

Mikie picked up the kids at school today. Told Papaw they were going to the eye doc and would come back to the house that Mikie is remodeling for lunch that had been packed and then he would take them back to school. When they got back to the house Papaw had cleaned up the parlor, set up a makeshift table, laid out their lunches and had even brought them soft drinks and cookies for a special treat. 

Thankful today for a great daddy for my kids. One who remodels a house for a year so that we can have a shorter drive to school (longer for him) and live in the same neighborhood as the families we hope to one day minister to. 

And for a great Papaw, my daddy, who makes sure his babies are always well fed and even if he doesn't know how or what to do he goes to the new house and keeps Mikie company while he works.

Day 11 -- 30 Days of Gratitude -- Happy Veteran's Day

Thankful today for all of our Veteran's and for those currently serving. Also thankful for those who stand behind their family and friends who are serving. I wish that behind every warrior was a faithful, praying spouse, parent, sibling, grandparent or friend. Not all of our Veteran's are as loved as the many that I know. 

Today I salute my husband, SMSgt Michael Johnson. The following is a write up I submitted for the Hamblen County Schools website salute to our Veteran's.

SMSgt Michael Johnson has served with the Tennessee Air National Guard, 134th Air Refueling Wing at McGhee Tyson Air Base in Alcoa for 22 years. SMSgt Johnson entered the Air National Guard upon graduating from high school.

Mike began as an aircraft mechanic as a weekender and worked his way up the ranks. Currently he is Resource Advisor for the maintenance department and works fulltime with the guard. 

Having traveled worldwide with the 134th. He has been deployed to Germany several times, as well as Italy, Turkey, England, Guam, United Arab Emirates, Kyrgyzstan and well as many other countries.

He has supported several conflicts and wars in his 22 years of service and has received several awards for his service. 

The kids and I love our Hero and support him 110%. Michael might be questionable. :)

Day 8 -- 30 Days of Gratitude

Michael was upset with me this morning. I ran in the gas station on the way to school. When I came back I saw this on his window. I just smiled. Even when he is upset with me he still likes me.
