He's Back!!

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

As I write this Blog I realize how lucky our family is. My son has been deployed since December 7 and just returned home Fiday night, July 1st! His little boy was 1 month old when he left and now is almost 8 months old! What a reunion we had! We spent Saturday together and then made our trip home to PA Sun/Mon. As I sit hear this morning I am so grateful he's made it back and so proud that he went to Afghanistan and did the job he was assigned to do! I feel a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders and my heart knowing he's back safe! I feel now I can concetrate on things a little better now, so I am ready to face the next 6 months of this weight loss journey with a renewed determination! Christmas is not that far away what a Great goal to set!

    My heart is with you, I spend 19 month in Iraq and Kuwait serving our soldiers we go where they go, and it was an experience I will never forget.
