A Levesque #61 - Last Rope

 I can't even begin to describe the feelings that I have built up inside of me lately.  This is going to be personal mainly because God gifted me with the ability to not care about your opinion, and this blog isn't for people who know me per se.  It's mainly for my children so they can look and see everything will work out.   NO MATTER WHAT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE HOPE. I've been struggling. Never have I seen such selfishness. Never have I seen so much greed. Never have I seen so much betrayal.  Never have I seen families ripped apart because of ego and pride.   My house and my family will not be torn apart in the process.  We serve the Lord, and no weapon formed against us will prosper.  We are formed on a rock, not sand to blow away when trials come our way.   Somedays will be hard. Shit, somedays are hard. Somedays it will rain. Then, Somedays the sun will shine so bright you'll forget that it was ever raining.  Never give up on those you love.   Pray for them from

A.Levesque #18 - Mrs. A - American

To the group of people who don't know, we just moved to a new town.  Vassar, Michigan population 2,697.  

Every time I venture into town or into society in general here I am just overwhelmed with happiness.

Story goes:
I had an appointment today with my daughters' teachers.  After I checked in I headed down to the room.  I slid in the back.  On the screen, the teacher was showing actual photos she took herself of her experience of going to where the towers fell.  She was explaining the photos to these children who only know this as a day in history, but not their personal history.  

She emphasized the loss that could be felt there.  She showed pictures of the memorials that were set up months after the attack took place, because of their importance.  When she was through, I listened to her answer questions with a smile on my face.  You could see it.  She was moved.  

As a combat veteran married to a combat veteran, I felt so honored.  

This community has such reverence for their American history, and their honor for veterans.  In both the elementary and the junior high/high school both have memorials right inside their doors.  

Sometimes as a veteran, you can get frustrated with the ignorance of the American public and how little it seems our sacrifices are truly appreciated.  

Do they know what is laid down for these freedoms?  The day in day out of an American soldier.  The long hours, missed time with families, and parts of ourselves that are just lost forever.  

Having spent 15 minutes in the back of that classroom today made me realize I am exactly where I should be.  

Follow your hearts.
Find your voice.
Never give up and always push through.
One day everything will just fit into line, and it will all make sense.

Thanks for liking sharing and anything you do.
Love You.
