Good News!

Our baby boy is back from Afghanistan!


Just had to pop in and shout the good news! He's not home yet, but we're counting the days! Today hubby and I went to Texas to pick up a trailer and we stopped to grab a bite to eat. We had just taken our seats and pointed out that we were sitting right under a Marine flag, when he called! :) At least he's back on American soil. Praise God! Oh, I can hardly contain myself! Thank you all so very much for your thoughts and prayers. I am truly, truly grateful! Think I'll have all the happy tears cried before he gets here? Nah - me neither.
