I realized today that yesterday marked 2 yrs since the boys and I arrived in Germany. In so many ways I can't believe it's been two years and yet in so many ways it feels like we've been here longer. I love living here...it's home for us right now. I just feel that we're SUPPOSED to be here.
God has truly been so gracious to us to allow us to return to Germany after everything has happened in our lives. For those who don't know, we were at a different Army post, but in Germany when Jordyn was dx with Leukemia. She was treated at a German hospital for 6 weeks until it was safe for her to fly and then off we began the next part of our lives back in the states. Chad and I both loved our short time in Germany (we were only here for 6 months before she was dx...well Chad was here longer but he'd been deployed so he was here over a year by the time he actually left). Anyways....we prayed that God would bring us back here and he has. Different base, but so wonderful. God's graced me with some of the most wonderful friends here in our community. We just truly feel at peace here.
When he leads us back home to the states I know it'll be time, but I pray we're here for 4 more years (we have 1 more year of this enlistment and we really want to stay an additional 3 yrs). If it's in his will then we will get to stay. We still have so many places to see and explore!
