"Just called to see how your night went. Love you babe!". That would have been the last thing I said to my husband had things went differently Monday. You see, my husband is a St. Petersburg Police Officer and was one of the first officers sent to a house where 2 of his fellow officers were shot and killed. I want to say God was watching over him yesterday, but how would the wives of the other officers feel about that? Was God not watching over their husbands as well? I can't answer those questions, but I can say I am thankful. I am thankful that my husband made it home alive. I am also thankful that I married a man who isn't afraid to serve and protect his community. I asked my husband how it was that he didn't end up in that house. He said when they gave out assignments he was told to go in the back of the house and had they told him to go in the front he would have went without question. That is what service is all about. To go where others would not go, without question. Needless to say, I am thankful he is alive tonight and I ask for all your thoughts and prayers to go out those officer's families who did not make it home.
