He's Coming Home

We snuck out of town for a few days.  Went down to Mexico to watched the waves hit the shore and do a little snorkeling.  It was great, BUT greater still  . . .  my boy is coming home.  He has been in Iraq for one year and his tour is over.  We received a phone call saying this weekend for sure, so we jumped back on the jet, flew home got in last night around midnight and we are out of here pdq.  I should be hugging him by the morning. 


These two picture were taken when he was home on leave in June.  He is a single guy with no children but all kids love him.


These last three picture were taken one  year ago when I saw him off to Iraq.  The little girl is his Sargent's youngest.  

Thank you to all who have come by.  I will back on next week.  

Blessings to all.

My heart jumps for joy for you. If you find a moment, give him a hug and thank him (from the bottom of my heart) for his service to us. And, thank you too for his service to us!

When you see your son please give him a big thank you from me. So much sacrifice - from everyone. So actually, thanks to you all!

I know you are overwhelmed with emotion at seeing your son. I can't imagine what it would be like to have a son in the service and off to a war. God bless.

Wow, I was thrilled to see your writing about your son. I need to stay in touch with you as I face my oldest (who will be 18 in May) joining the Marined in June just two days after he graduates high school.
