Reading list anyone??

It's amazing how a single text message from my Marine can make my day. :) I often go a day or two without hearing from him but this morning while I was in school I recieved a text from him. My heart aways jumps the minute I see it's from him.. This is what it said.. " I'm so sorry for all this April, it's hard to sneak a text in between work but I just wanted to tell you I love you so much. " That made my day, i've been in such a great mood. It's amazing the power of a single text, call, or email. I always save the sweet texts on my phone and flip through them when i'm feeling down, it really helps calm my heart and serve as a reminder of his love for me. <3

I want to say thankyou to all the people that have been praying for Cale & I. It truely means more than I could ever say and over this past week i've grown to have a very peaceful and joyful feeling in my heart. I know that everything is going to work out and he'll be coming soon before he deploys. :)

Also since I absolutely LOVE to read, I have a brilliant idea! [I know you're reading this Brandi! :)] Over the next 7-8 months I have to find some way to occupy my time and I want to come up with a reading list to go down while Cale is deployed. So.... if you know any great books that are a must read or you come across any in your reading, let me know and i'm going to try to put together a list of all the books I want to read before my Marine comes home. It can be sort of a challenge :) Anyone want to do this with me? OR if you know of any hobbies or organizations that support the troops that I could get involved with, let me know! I'd love to volunteer any extra time I have for a charity organization or anything of that nature. Any suggestions, just let me know. I want to stay busy, busy, busy and this deployment will fly by!

I also ordered my t-shirt that I posted in a previous post. I'm so excited, I can't wait to get it in the mail, hopefully it fits because I want to wear it for red Fridays and support our troops! Yay :)

Semper Fi! :)


  1. I love to read, so I'd be up to joining you in a reading list.

    I'm sorry things are so hard for you. Sometime people let their own jaded experiences ruin something beautiful for someone else. Just trust God, and your heart and hang in there.

    Your Marine, and his safe return, is in my prayer journal.

    I hope you have a beautiful day tomorrow.


  2. Vixen Kitten thankyou so much. It truely makes my heart smile knowing that there are people like you in this world. People who are kind enough to pray for strangers. I really appreciate your nice comments and can't tell you how thankful I am. :)

    I hope you have a beautiful day tomorrow as well!

  3. AH! I'd love to help you with a reading list! I already have some books to recommend to you...and I have the copies so if you need 'em, you know you can borrow them =) First off, I DEFINITELY recommend Ted Dekker's "Blink of an Eye"; VERY good. And any Christopher Moore books that you can get your hands on. His writing style is pretty different and a little eccentric, but his stories are like nothing you've ever read before! I definitely recommend reading "Fluke" (it's my favorite) by Christopher Moore. And I'll definitely be thinking of some more, lol ILY so much April!!!
