Default HE'S HOME AT LAST!

My grandson just got to Texas from spending a year in Iraq. Since we are from Missouri and he is stationed in Texas, I have not seen him yet, but have talked to him. He and his wife and my lovely lovely great granddaughter will be home for Chirstmas. The whole family together again for the holidays.

I am so excited! It makes me feel for the troops that are still over there. Last year he left about 4 days after Christmas and was not able to be here in Mo. to spend it with us.

Hope you can all share in my excitement!!

I am so very happy for you and your family! I am extending a huge THANK YOU to your Grandson as well as the rest of your family. The sacrifices your Grandson has given to his country are appreciated as well as the sacrifices you all have made while he has been gone. I know the past year has been a difficult one - I am very glad to hear another soldier has arrived home safely. I pray for the day when they are all home and safe and sound.

Merry Christmas to you and your family. God Bless you all ...

What wonderful news. When your grandson gets to you for Christmas, give him an extra hug from me! I join TJStamper in offering THANKS to the soldier and his family for their sacrifices, and continue my prayers that all return home safely.

Let's keep Christ in Christmas.

What wonderful news for your family. I know how excited all of you are because we felt the same way last year when our son was able to be home for Christmas. Give him our thanks for his service. It is a long year when they are serving in Iraq. God Bless and Merry Christmas. Konnie
