Can you tell what's on my mind this month? In addition to celebrating my latest book, "Cowboy Comes Home" which is the second in the Double B series, I'm also dealing with the deployment of our son, Brennan, shown here with me and my husband. We couldn't be more proud or more worried about our 19 year old Marine. When someone out there says how bad the "kids today are", I'd love for them to meet some of the guys we know. It will be a long 2009 for our family as Brennan heads to Iraq not to return until Thanksgiving, but I know a lot of you are praying for him and his buddies and I'll keep busy writing and reading and posting.

I hope to be a better blogger this year and I hope to ramp up the promotion of my books.

For any other military moms or wives out there, stay strong, pray, and hang in there. Its really all we can do.

I will be sure to pray for Brennan's safety and for your family during this time of separation.

Blessings to you, Roni!

You're the second military mom I've read today. God Bless You and Brennan. You must be so proud--and so fearful!

Wishing you the best. Great blog, btw. :)

What a great picture! I will keep "your Marine" in my prayers.

We owe these kids a lot. I hope you don't get gray hair while he is away. Wishing Brennan a safe trip and safe return to his family.

Thank you so much everyone. I'm learning so much that I never knew I wanted to know about by becoming a military Mom; its a different world that's for sure. Keep up the prayers; one month down and 11 more to go until he's home again.

How difficult that must have been for your whole family when he deployed. May he (and all of them) be safe and come home to live a full life.
