This week at I Heart Faces, the theme is Best Face Photo. It has to be a photo that was taken in the past few weeks.
I chose this photo of my husband and son saying good-bye in the office of the Army recruiting station last week, as my son shipped out to Basic Training. My husband's face says so many things. His eyes say that he is remembering when this brave young man was a tiny tot and then a toddler...and then a pre-teen, and then a teen. It says that he is struggling with his emotions as they embrace and say good-bye. It says he is proud of his son and wishes him every success. My son's face says he is struggling to say good-bye to his family and start a new life in service to his country.
I am a mom to ten great kids, 6 of whom have 'special needs,' and wife to a wonderful man, who is a gift from God. God has let us get a glimpse of His heart for the fatherless, and He is allowing us to be a small part of His mission to them.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming, "Wow, what a ride!!!"---Unknown

All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
