Supporting friends-being Thankful

I am certain that humans are "pack animals"

We function better together!
in a team
in a PACK

We aren't made to run solo.

We even believe this about marriage -
because we have the term,  "opposites attract"
Don't you think it's because one can be strong in an area where the other is weak?

I can think of many times in my life where simple acts of kindness have made a lasting impact on my life.

After Mike finished boot camp back in January of 1990 - we met another married couple and started
doing lots of things together.  Our times together were built on simple friendship and all things new:

Newly married
New to the Navy
and far from family - in a new place;
learning how to build a home together.

This couple is Michael and Krysti Ansley.

22 years later - we have six boys between the two families and haven't been stationed together again.

But the friendship and the memories remain.

For this reason -
I am asking you to support Mike's efforts to raise money for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

Here is the link to his fund raising page:  CLICK HERE

You can read more about his story below.
