A hug can never be took for granted. I squeezed my LEO with everything I had in me Monday morning. I have just now got up the strength to post…. My LEO is fine. He is perfectly fine. I don’t want to alarm anyone, I am asking for some deep prayers though.
So here’s what is going on. I am so proud of the courage Blayne shows as an officer. It’s very humbling to see him so brave even when I can spot fear in his eye. Stress in his heart and worry in his mind. We both have to be strong for each other and lean to eachother to get through the stresses.
We had an approx 10 hour notice that my Leo needed to pack up and fly to where the pipeline protests are. All the way to North Dakota. Let me just stress with all the violence going on all over the world, the word PROTEST scares the living crap out of me. If you haven’t read on the protest you can do so by one of my previous posts. Also, a Google search will pull up the latest. So up at 4am Monday morning to make sure my LEO gets off to Tulsa airport and on his flight that left at 7am. He has made it safe and sound there and we still know very little details. The protest is not a violent one at this time but again, it scares me to death.
The flight went well, for his first time. Trying to keep him calm through all of the cluster was a treat. Thankfully God has created an extra patient heart in me, and also a heart that is absolutely crazy about my LEO. So guiding and helping him in any way he needs is a huge pleasure to me. After all, that is exactly what God gives you a spouse for right? THEIR happiness, their well being, their smile… He put me here for him and I make it my mission every day to make his life as easy as possible. As stress free as possible and to make sure at the end of the day he has a smile that could go for miles. If you can’t tell, my LEO is very special to me. As are each of yours to you.
He made it to South Dakota around noon yesterday, he is seeing just how big this world is! They don’t know much of what or where they will be at this time, and are not even sure how long he will have to be there. The actual protest is in North Dakota however, so many people are joining this protest from all over that it continues to grow. There are reports of people from Germany, Canada and all over. Tribes are coming to protest the construction of the pipeline.
We were told the hearing is Wednesday, August 24th. After, we should know a lot more details and possibly when they send everyone home.
The prayers are greatly appreciated, I know he will be fine and be home soon. I can’t help but have fear and worry due to the hatred shown towards police. I think it’s only natural to worry. They say if he is brave enough to suit up, I have to be brave enough to let him. My strength is coming from God because when I hugged his neck Monday, I just almost couldn’t let go. So, as you can imagine yesterday was hard but could have been worse. With next to no sleep my emotions were high and my headache was pounding- I know…. Insert big baby tears. I refused to put on my big girl panties yesterday but today I am strong. We are anxious for his return and can’t wait to hug him again. Our officers need the prayers. They have sent officers from all over to this, so I know I am not alone as I sit on the porch and stare at the lake just waiting for him to call again so I can hear his voice.
If you frequent my blog you will know I speak from my heart, ya know… That really mushy part. I can’t help it sometimes… I am blessed in so many ways and often times things and people are took for granted. I can not stress how there is no time for that, life is so short. Love as much as you possibly can. We have been on quite the little journey and through some dark days. I remember a time when my LEO told me to take his hand and never EVER let go. I promised him I wouldn’t and he did the same, no matter what storm cloud was above us we have always kept our promise. Even at times when I was positive he had given up, or even he might have thought I had. We have proved to eachother we haven’t. We have proved to each other we’d keep our promise and always be there for the other. My LEO, like many of yours to you… Is my best friend. We laugh together, love together, grieve together and hurt together- he has shown me gods ideal of a couple being one flesh. So back to my mushiness… This world is full of so many different people. We have different likes, dislikes, interests, thoughts and personalities. This is how it’s supposed to be, it’s ok we are all different. It’s ok we don’t all think alike. What is not ok is the hate for our police. The violence in our world. The hate for others. It is so heartbreaking to watch it on the news. And you’re right, one person can’t change it all. They can help it though, you will never convince me a single persons heart can’t spread love and have a domino effect?!
