Aloha!


This sweet girl is my daughter. She is married to an army man and moved away to Hawaii back in September. Her husband was deployed a few weeks ago to Iraq, so she is spending time with her dog(s) and working. She is an assistant manager at a hair salon and her mom is very proud of her! We talk everyday, several times a day, about this and that... usually about our dogs. (our children) This girl is a carbon copy of her dad... sweet, compassionate, giving, tender hearted... nothing pretentious about her! And she is FUNNY! She loves to laugh and some of my best laughs have been with her. (remember the Christmas party with the turkey hunting group?) I miss her. A lot! She was my shopping partner when she was here and I have not been able to replace her. She was also my Sunday School teacher assistant. (my class still tells me it's no fun without Mrs. April... but I don't believe them.. ha!) Did I tell you that I miss her? A lot! Her best friend is flying out to Hawaii this week to visit her. I'm so happy for both of them and pray that the huge snow storm doesn't interfere with her flight. I love you, Appie!

Its so wonderful that we have technology nowadays to keep in touch with loved ones far away! But, I know its hard for both of you to be so far away from each other.

Sounds like you have a wonderful relationship, that is awesome. I will be praying for your son-in-law.

I know how close you and April and how much you miss her. It is good that with our technology you can talk to her several times a day and with skype see her. Hopefully, you can make a trip to see her soon or she can make a trip home. The pics of her and friend were great. Looks like they had a good time. It was nice that she got to join April for a little while. Know she is missing her hubby, but hopefully the days will go by fast until they are back together.
