Wow Crystal, what a beautifully talented photographer and writer you are! I don't know how I came upon your blog, I think I googled a pattern for a sewing project and now I find myself enthralled in your story. I am 23 yrs old and not yet a wife or a mother, so I cannot relate as other people can in their comments, but I must tell you that you paint your stories in such a way that I can relate to how you cope with your thoughts and feel as if I know you now. What creative power you have. Thank you for sharing yourself.

Bless you and your family. Thank you for thinking of the families still in the military and dealing with the never-ending deployments. Mine's in Afghanistan right now. I respect the flag more then ever these days and hang mine proudly on the front of our home.

Beautifully written. I love our flag and I love flying it. It is an awesome sight and reminder to us not to take it or those that fight to protect it for granted.

Good to see you are getting settled. Sarah said she is going to send you something so I gave your mail to her. I love the blue in the kitchen, and everyone that comes over does too. Even my mother in law. Don't forget to drop the garage door opener in the mail if you get a chance, or even come across it.

I couldn't agree with you more. Before I married into the military there were certain things that I simply took for granted; the flag was definitely one of them. Now my perspective is forever changed.

I feel the same way about the term "great American". I didn't really understand it before, yet now I have a deep appreciation not only of what it is but for the people who deserve the title- as I am sure your husband does (as do you :))
