Thank you Mamaw Vickie and Aunt Jill for watching the kids so I could attend this! Between you both, David's support, and the military helping to provide the finances, I was able to go and have an awesome weekend. God worked out all the details and it was a very special "get-away" with many "God moments". I am so thankful for God and for His provision, grace, and love.
