That’s right, my Soldier is coming home! It won’t be long now till he’s in my arms again. I can’t wait. And neither can the boys; they insisted we find their “Merican” flags to wave when we see him.

I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll tell you it’s true: these long separations are always so hard, but the homecomings are always so sweet. Thank you, Lord, for joyful anticipation to carry us through the struggle of being apart.

Yay! So happy for all of you!!! I can't imagine how hard it is being away from each other than long. Joe hasn't been home for dinner all week and I was complaining (in my head) about it...then I read your post and thought, I have nothing to complain about. Rejoicing in the fact that you all are together again!!!!
