How difficult this must be for you and your family...Please know we are all thinking of you!

My heart is aching for you Dawn. I hope it comforts you to know that so many of your friends have you in their prayers. I know you have the strength to get through this. What a great man you have in Rich and the time will go quickly and he will be home for his leave. My how you will appreciate each other!! Hugs for you.

I missed your earlier posts about your husband. Is he in the service? I really feel for you. My husband just returned from Iraq where he served in the army in Mosul for a little over a year. He was an advisor to the Iraqi army and lived with the Iraqi soldiers. I'll be thinking of you as you go through this challenging year, and you and your family are in my prayers!


I'm sitting here just crying out to God on behalf of you. You are such a special woman and I know that you find the peace to endure this next year with a strenght only He can give you. Love you


Dawn ~ Here is a huge HHHHHUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGG! my thoughts and prayers are with you! Try and keep that chin up girlie!

This is adorable!

I will continue to pray for strength for you during this time apart from your honey bunch.

Yhe card is adorable...Just know that all your friends in bloggerland are thinking of you and your family and we are all praying for you. Remember that God does not give us more then he and we can handle together.

Dawn, I am so sorry. I will also keep you and your family in my prayers. This has to be so hard!

Keep busy and the time will hopefully go by quicker!

Rubber Hugs to you!

Love your teddy bear card and I'm sure your hubby will too! Sorry you're feeling a little down, wish we could cheer you up. Hugs!

Just wanted to give you a little {{{{{cyber hug}}}}}

I will be thinking of you and your family today. I hope that you can find something to do to pass the time. You are all in our prayers.

Lots of hugs and smiles to you today, Dawn.

Dawn, my thoughts are with you and your family today. Keep stampin' and this year will go real fast! Sending you a hug!

Dawn -
Just wanted you to know that you and your family are in my prayers right now, especially during this time of separation. I pray that the Lord will keep Rich safe and in good health while he's gone and that you and your daughter will stay busy and happy so the time of separation will fly by.
Blessings on you today, as I know this must be a sad day for you.

Dawn! thank you for sharing your special project. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
take care,

Well girlfriend, what can I say that I didn't already say last night, but you already know you and your family have been in my prayers ever since you told me about this opportunity.

Now, onto more brighter and happier thoughts.......................drum rolllllllllllllll.... You get to say "I told you so", after how many years I've been with you that I finally got the SU scissors, let me just say I was able to cut out nine (9) sets, yes count them 9, in the hour that I watched my show Medium last night! Can you believe 9 of them? And, I still have another half of a box to go! Yesterday, I brought 1 set to cut out at work on my lunch hour and it took 2 minutes! Oh why oh why didn't I get these years sooner? It would have made all those great sets I got from you so much easier to cut & mount then put to use! I could just kick myself. You know what the best part about these SU scissors is? You're marvelous scissor charms! There's no mistaking these are "mom's" scissors with that little bit of dawn's bling bling, KWIM?

Dawn...I so share your thoughts and concerns for your husband going "over there". Our daughter (mom of 3 little ones) left last week for Afghanistan for 6 months. It is scary. Keep the faith and pray a lot!!

Very nice card - he will love it! Having just got back recently from Iraq myself, I know what you are going through. Stay busy, write a lot (he WILL have email and probably a phone)and know that we all keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Rubbah hugs girl! Alex

you are in my prayers. I have been a silence follower of your site and want you to know that you have been an inspiration for me in the last few weeks to pick up my stamps again!
thank you for being the christian witness that you are
Isaiah 43:2,3

I can't imagine what you must be going through...just know that we will all send you our best wishes (esp. on particularly rough days like this one)...

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your dh, also with your daughter. She and your stampin' friends will help make the time go faster, I am sure! Thanks again for such a positive witness for Christ.
Hugs & prayers, Diane
Athens, MI


Came across your blog from another and wanted to say that I'll keep you and your dh in my thoughts and prayers, along with all the others who are bravely serving.

Be Strong.

I am praying for you and your family right now sweetie! I can't imagine how hard it is to watch him leave. The card is absolutely beautiful!

Hey Dawn,

I am sorry you having such a down day!! I can't imagine how hard it must be. Again to help you think of happier things did you see LOST last night. What was all of that? I felt so cheated, we saw nothing of Jack or Locks Dad. And I hated the ending!! I don't want to say anything incase you did not see it. Can't wait to hear what you thought! Keep smiling,

First I want to say my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family...I can't even imagine! Second...I LOVE your blog and I'm on it EVERYDAY!!! Thank you for sharing.

Dawn, My heart is hurting for you today as I sit here in my puddle of tears. I want you to know that you are in my prayers daily. I will be thinking of you. Jamie

Dawn, My heart is with you this evening. Both my husband and I are military brats, and have two nephews in the military, one serving in Iraq right now. It was always so hard to send our fathers off one more time (during the Viet Nam era). You never get used to it. But we are proud of our military heritage. It taught us alot of life lessons that we wouldn't trade for the world. I just want to thank you and your family and of course you "Honey Bunch" for what you are sacrificing. Stand firm in your faith girlie. You will remain in my prayers. I pray a restful evening for you.

Aww. You poor thing. I wish there were some magic words I could say to make you feel better.
What comes to mind is the ending of the footprints in the sand poem - and I'm paraphrasing here - but when you look back and see one set of footprints - it was then I carried you.
Know he is carrying you and your husband today. You are never alone even when it seems that way. Rest in His peace and His arms tonight.
Praying for you -

oh Dawn, my heart is breaking for you. I'm sending super gigantic hugs yours way. Be sad today and then start counting down the days tomorrow until he's home!! xoxo Barb ps...go get some yummy ice cream :)


Chin up! We will all pray for him for sure and you know what before you know he'll be home!!! My thoughts and prayers are with you!! Love your card to him....colors and my favorite..BEARS!!!

I've just began visiting your blog and I'm sorry to read your post today. Please know I will put your family in my thoughts and prayers. Stay strong.

You are in my thoughts and prayers Dawn!

I read your blog daily but never posted before, today I want to send big hugs to you and your family. I will be praying that you have God's comfort and peace during your seperation and safety for Rich.

I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

God Bless!


I had to comment today to let you know my heart goes out to you. I hope all of your blogger pals, stamping pals, and of course your family and friends can keep you distracted. I will put you & your family in my prayers. One can never have enough.

The night time must be very hard, so I'm praying for you now.

Praying for you, Dawn! I can't even imagine having that set of emotions that you're going through right now. But know that I love you and am praying for you.

Hi Dawn.
I too have been a follower of you blog for quite some time now.
I can't even imagine what you are going through right now, but I just wanted you to know my thought and prayers are with you.

Hi Dawn, I check your blog daily although I don't post much and just wanted to let you know I'm sending good thoughts your way. I was a military wife for 14 years (DH retired in 03) so I know just what you are going through. The first few weeks are the hardest - those and the last few weeks before he comes home which just cccrrraaaawwwwllll by. Chin up, girlie : )

So sorry to hear it's really here for sure! I'm praying for you, family & Rich. I know it will be difficult, but just keep turning your focus back on the Lord - "He will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are stayed upon Him"- Isaiah 26:3.

My prayers and thoughts are with you,your family and especially your husband. I know personally how hard deploymensts are but I just couldn't begin to imagine how it would be if Jimmy were leaving for Iraq for a year. 6 months were long enough. Big hugs always.

My prayers our with you and your family!

My prayers are with you and your family. I'm happy you have so many things to keep you busy! Just look at how fast that last year went by! At least you have email these days. 40 Years ago when my hubby was in Viet Nam we didn't have that great communicating thing! Keep those prayers going girl friend.

My prayers are definately wtih you. It takes an amazing woman to hold down the fort while hubby does an amazing job over there. Of course when my husband was deployed, I kept joking with him that he was playing in the sand. Just take it one day at a time and get into a routine and you'll find that the time will fly. You'll do a great job of staying busy with that new cuttlebug! I had three kiddos to keep me busy. Hugs and prayers!
