This post is dedicated to our near and dear friends--the Evirs family. Mr. Evirs left on deployment a few days ago and he will not be back until the summer sometime. He leaves on his home front a wonderfully strong and courageous wife-Justine, a cute as pie tween Cayla, a ketchup lovin toddler-ette Kesley and bouncing baby boy Caelan. Oh and a GIANT cat named Poots.
Their bonds of love are strong and their will to thrive while separated is insurmountable; even still I know there will be many days where they will miss each other something fierce and I just wanted them to know that the Dills are thinking about them. The Evirs will remain in our positive thoughts until the day they can all be reunited again. To do what our brave husbands do on a daily basis is no easy task and one that often goes without much fanfare. Mr. Evirs, "Fair Winds and Following Seas" may your deployment bring wealth, wisdom and go by as fast as earthly possible. Mrs. Evirs, hang in there chick....we have been friends now for several years but I think (and DO NOT CORRECT me if I am wrong-ignorance is bliss after all... ;)!! ) we are more like sisters--sisters in motherhood, sisters in military wife hood and just plain ol' crazy extremely loud and funny sisters!! Your undertaking is huge but some how some way through hard work, sweat and probably some tears you will get through this--you have an excellent circle of family and friends around you who will take you into their fold and help you along during this tough time. And Evirs kids, Daddy's love transcends all time and space, he is already there in everything you do, just think of him.
Evirs family if there is anything you need from us please do not hesitate to ask, we are only a phone call, email, Skype message, care package, plane ride or one EXTREMELY long car ride away. And we love you all SSSSOOOO MUCH!!!
"A part of you has grown in me.
And so you see, it's you and me
Together forever and never apart,
Maybe in distance, but never in heart."
