First Drill/RSP

Well, Josiah had his first drill (or as they call it right now, RSP) this weekend.  And he loved it.  It was certainly different to see my husband come home in a military uniform.  It will take a while for me to get used to seeing him in it.  The kids think it is great, and they talk about the army and military all the time now.

For those of you who care here is video of what Josiah will be doing in the National Guard

When he has his December drill they have family day, and I get to go and spend the day with him.  I am pretty excited because I love seeing what Josiah is doing and what the places look like where he is.

Church was a bit of a challenge by myself with the 3 kids, but nothing that I cannot handle.  We definitely have work to do, but I found out that I can do it and it is not so bad.

I praise God that he has been changing my attitude about Josiah joining the National Guard.  Sure I know it will not be easy, but I am actually looking forward to the challenge, and I just want to please God in all I do.  I realize that I am responsible for myself and how I act, and I want to please God even if I am in a situation that is far from easy.  I do not want to have any regrets.

I am starting to get more excited about all of this, not to say that I do not still have moments of not liking it.

I just want to say thank you to all the military wives out there.  I am beginning to realize the sacrifices that they have to make are huge and they have to be pretty unselfish.  Thank you.

God bless!!
