Thoughts and prayers for Fort Hood


    As I sit at my computer ready to create today's blog post, I am at a loss for words.  I can't bore you with the details of what I ate today or how I need to exercise more often.  There are far more important, serious things going on it our nation today.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Fort Hood, Texas for the tragedy that transpired today.  As the daughter of a retired military officer, I grew up an "Army Brat" and cannot imagine something so horrific happening on post.  For those of you who don't know, living on post is an extremely close group of people united in a cause - to defend this amazing country.  It is so sad that a suspect could possibly be one of our own.  I have several friends who have been stationed at Fort Hood and have visited there myself.  I also have a friend who is stationed there with his family today...thank God, he and his family are doing okay.  I am so thankful for the brave men and women of Fort Hood and want them to know my family and I are praying for them.
