Two weeks ago today, my husband came home from working his last day as a Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputy in order to follow a new calling as the Operational Manager of Brush Creek Ranch. We are excited about this new adventure we are able to embark upon and this new lifestyle we are being given the opportunity to live.

But today, I wanted to recognize and appreciate the last chapter, and to thank my husband for his service as a Deputy Sheriff. Its is a tough job. A dangerous job. A terribly under-appreciated job. One that isn’t nearly as glamorous in real life as it seems to be to the average 10-year-old boy.

Working as a Sheriff’s Deputy….Yes, he ruined more than a few people’s days with traffic citations. He also got drunk drivers off the road. He climbed over cliffs to rescue people in trouble. He broke up fights. He fought fires. He stumbled upon bombs and responded to bomb threats.  He saw human depravity at its worst.  He saved lives….and also had to carry the burden of knowing he wasn’t able to save them all. He was a hero. Is a hero still.

So to my hubby, his friends, and the rest of the under-appreciated officers out there: thank you for what you have done!

I am proud to know that our son wants to grow up to be just like YOU!

    What a sweet post and I LOVE the photos – those are great! I, too am beyond grateful to your husband and all those who serve. I am also grateful to you and those spouses who allow their significant others to serve as well – I can’t imagine that it is easy knowing the potential dangers he was facing every day he worked. Thank you to you both!

    You must be so proud! My family and I are in a similar situation as you. My husband has served 25 years in the military and will be retiring in two months. He has a new job lined up and I couldn’t be prouder of him. As you said, “We are excited about this new adventure we are able to embark upon and this new lifestyle we are being given the opportunity to live.” I cannot wait to start this new adventure. Good luck to your and your family!

    You post caught my eye from Sew Much Ado. My hubby and I are both retired Law Enforcement. Thank you husband for his service and give yourself a pat on the back because without the sacrifice of family our officers wouldn’t be able to do their job. Good Luck for both of you and your adorable little boy in your great future:)
    PS. I am now following you on LInky

    I got goosebumps! My Dad was a police officer for 25 years. I and my friends always looked up to police officers. It is such an incredibly challenging job. Good luck!
