I just have a minute while the Soldier is taking a cat nap, but wanted to put a quick update up. His leave will be over soon and I appreciate any prayers you send our way. I am dreading the rest of this deployment and I don't know how the kiddos are going to handle him leaving again.
I have said it before, but these year (plus) deployments are just too much. Too much for kids that need their daddy, too much for marriages that are strained to the breaking point. Too much for anyone to bear.
I am thankful that he was here for the oldest's graduation. It was such a huge milestone for her and we are very proud. (You can see the news about her graduation here and here.)
I promise to be back the land of bloggers soon, as long as I don't lose my mind...
I did get five minutes on Amazon today, so here are the newest freebies (and a bunch of bargains) for Kindle. Don't forget to watch the facebook page for any additions.
The usual reminders and disclaimers:
- Prices change often and without notice. Books are usually only free for a limited time. Always check the price before clicking 'download'.
- You can read these books, even if you don't have a Kindle, by downloading the free app for your computer or phone. For a full list of apps, please click here. If you have been holding off on getting a Kindle, Amazon now has a reduced price one with special offers (i.e. ads on your screensaver) for only $114.
- Please consider following my blog on Google Friend Connect or by 'liking' my Facebook page. I will post books as soon as I find them on Facebook and it usually takes a few days to make to my blog.
- If you download a book, please 'Share the Love' by using the buttons below each post to let your friends know. And please leave a comment, I love to hear from you!
- If you enjoy the free book posts, please consider shopping through my links when you do purchase from Amazon. The small commission I receive for your purchase helps me justify all the time I spend on this blog to my Soldier! Thanks :)
