A year ago July 4th Infantry Dad wandered my way....starting a friendship and entrance into a community of parents of active duty military that has been incredibly rewarding for me. At that time Infantry Dad's son Matt was deployed to Iraq. As the other sons of our little commenting circle came home I've rejoiced for each, but always awaiting the return of Matt, the first "unkown" (to me) soldier on my prayer list. I counted the days and then the hours right there with I-Dad and greatly rejoiced when I got the email that said he was Boots On the Ground! June 6th.
I danced, believe you me, I danced (and yelled and cried and prayed)!!
Unfortunately, due to some changes that took place in my life at the same time I haven't had a chance to share this dance with you fellow bloggers till today.
Infantry Dad, I'm sorry it's late. Matt stays on the prayer list, as do you and your wife.
And if you listen close, you can hear Sugars (who is at my feet just out of the shot) singing for him too.
A huge Thank You to Matt for his service to our country and for doing what it takes so that I and my children may be free.
We are so very glad you're home safe.
