While driving towards Eden, I spotted this vehicle:
And it made me smile. No, it made me grin from ear to ear, for days. Still does.They pulled into a station and I followed. Just wanted to thank them for their service and sacrifice and welcome home a soldier. They eagerly rolled down the window and I laughed to see 6 children and a very harried Mama. The children were just ecstatic and all talking at once. It was great! They were on their way to Ft. Hood to pick up their Daddy who had been in Afghanistan for a year. They had a set of 14 my old twins and they had just received a call that he would be in earlier than expected. The excitement in that vehicle was barely containable. The Mom was concerned that she hadn't had enough time to curl her hair and I just told her that she looked radiant (she did) and that as far as her husband was concerned, she would be a sight for sore eyes and the most beautiful thing he'd laid his eyes on for a long time. I did thank them and told them to thank their Daddy for me and the kids just erupted all at once. It was great and I'm still grinning. I wish I had gotten the soldier's name. I won't ever forget him or his family.
I also have a finished quilt to share with you. I started this quilt last year and finally have it finished.
