  3. That just brought tears to my eyes. I've been thinking about your family during this time. I keep wondering what I'd do with those last few moments with my husband and it just breaks my heart. Plenty of warm thoughts for you. I hope you know how many people you have pulling for you...even if we are anonymous!

  11. My goodness. That's rough. I don't know what to say to make you feel better. Your husband is a lucky man, you are such a beautiful woman and loving mother, I'm sure he'll think about you non-stop. My chest I heavy for him having to leave you and his other two beautiful girls. What a man you have, mrs ba.

  12. Hi Bethany,
    I guess you could say I've been 'stalking' your blog for the past year. In March I ended up meeting your husband at a home where he was doing some work (I clean this home a few days a week). The only reason I recognized his face was from seeing your beautiful family pictures. I asked his name and then proceeded to admit to reading/stalking your blog :) You don't know me, but I want to sincerely let you know I will be praying for Seth and for you and the girls. My heart aches seeing these precious pictures, so I can only imagine what it's like living it. From just my few encounters with Seth I can tell he is an honorable man. He is truly blessed with a beautiful wife and precious little girls. Much love to you. On a lighter note....LOVE your blog...you're a crazy, talented writer....you need to be making some serious cash with your skills!!!

  23. Hoo ah, Killer B! Army pride. Army wife pride. Father pride. Pride & confidence. Laugh-at-the-future confidence (Prov. 31:21). "Hell & high water" confidence. "All things through Christ" confidence. Dang allergies, must be something making my eyes water & my gut tighten. You go, girl. Go for 51 more weeks.

  24. Having military family members who have to leave their precious families to serve and protect us and our country, we can NEVER thank you enough for the ENORMOUS sacrifices you make. There just are no words. I bawled like a baby "reading" this beautiful posting.

    Your special hubby, you and your girls will be in my thoughts and prayers. Stay strong. And I know it's not much but THANK YOU...from the bottom of my heart!
