The Official Picture

Today, Hubby had his official picture taken.

He comes home on Monday and says,
B: "So do you know what our official picture is for?"
Me: "Ummm, if you get killed on duty?"
B: "Yes! How'd you know?"
Me: "Wild guess."

He then goes on to explain further that they have to have an official picture for the media, and for the obituary. He has been in the safe keepings of the police academy for 26 weeks, and it just dawned on me the other day that I only have 2 more weeks of not worrying about my husband.

Not worrying if he will get in a wreck, chasing after a suspect.
Or get shot during a domestic dispute.
Or get stabbed fighting with someone.

I haven't had to worry about if he will make it home to the boys and I.

As scary as it is, I have to keep reminding myself that this is what God has called him to do. There aren't that many people who are willing to graciously put their lives on the line everyday just to make the world a better place. I know that God will protect him, until it his time to go. I have to keep praying for me to have COMPLETE trust in Him, and know that my handsome hubbas will walk through that garage door every night, kiss me, and tell me that whatever I have cooking sure does smell good.

I will drive myself crazy if all I do is think about things that could happen to him at work. I will probably find myself praying more now than I ever have.

I love to talk to Brayden about what daddy does everyday at work. He says that "daddy takes the bad guys to jail." I then say "Is daddy your hero?" he says " Of course he is mommy, is he your hero too?"

"Yes baby, yes he is."

  1. Cody gets an official picture done every year...definitely not one of my favorite things he brings up.

    I know you have got to be so nervous for these last two weeks, but you have a great mindset about it. HE has ultimate control, and as scary as that can be, it can be strangely comforting too.

    You know I understand your situation. Feel free to express worries or frustrations to me anytime!

  2. Thanks love! looking forward to hanging out so they can talk about all that morbid stuff, and we can talk about BABIIEEESS lol
