Military Spouse Appreciation Day - Salute to Michelle and Grace


Today is Military Spouse Appreciation Day and Calvin and I want to thank Michelle and Grace for all they do as military wives.

Michelle and Ty

Abe and Grace

They create loving, happy homes.  They deal with unknown schedules and uncertain military assignments.  They recognize that deployments and separations are inevitable.  They celebrate their husband's achievements, and encourage them when they're discouraged. They counsel and advise their husbands and fellow military wives.  They move frequently and are willing to start over, make new friends, go to new doctors, serve in new church congregations, and find the good things in the areas where they live.  They are kind, strong, conscientious, and loving mothers . . .

And they do it without asking for pity.  They serve willingly.  Thank you Grace and Michelle.  We love and appreciate you and your service to our country, your husbands, your children, and our family.

For Michelle and Grace keep showing your kindness and braveness to every military spouse. Both of you are role models and inspiration to us all. It is very nice to know and see how you can handle things well. Keep it up and thank you.
