Last few days.....crazy as usual! Had to get my car worked on,go to DMV(grrrrr) Well the kist goes on & on. I was leaving the house today & saw my neighbor outside. He asked if we were thinking of getting a swing set soon. Which is odd because Matt & I had this discussion just the other day. We had held off because we didn't know at the time if we'd be moving. Anyway I said I was getting one soon & we talked for a minute about neighbor stuff then I left. I ran a couple errands & come home to find that my neighbors swing set is in MY yard! He was standing out there with a huge grin on his face & I was so confused. He said that they didn't need it anymore. See he has twin girls but only gets them on weekends & they are getting older. I tried to pay him but he wouldn't let me. He kept saying I wish I could do more. Then later I realized what he meant by that. He meant he wished he could do more because of Matt being gone right now. I was & so am grateful for his kindness. He really is so very nice to me. He's gotten me through my window when I was locked out too many times to count! LOL! Then again I felt different about this. Did he feel sorry for us? I mean I am so proud of Matt & all he sacrifces daily but I don't want pity for him. He wouldn't want that! I am proud of my children who are so young but have went through so much since September but I don't want pity for them. I am proud of myself for making it this far when I never thought I could but I don't want pity. It's hard to explain I don't want our family or all the military families out there to go unnoticed. Then again I am getting through this & will continue to. Don't look at my family & feel sorrow. Look at my family & see pride,sacrifice,hardwork,dedication & love.
