MY SOLDIER IS HOME AND A HAPPY DAY

Nathan got home Momday afternoon from Afghanistan. It was his son's second birthday. I had asked the little fellow that morning where was his daddy and he pointed to the computer screen. A TN tean had just won the US Little League Championship and they came in at the same time. Reporters were there to welcome them home, but not for the soldiers. But a professional videographer from their church was there and filmed the whole thing. And there was an honor guard there for the soldiers also. I would like for all of you to watch the video. The link is Vimeo.com/48333574. Of course you may have to add the Http and WWW depending on your computer. The fat woman in teal and weeping is his mother. It is not hard to tell who is the wife. It is a wonderful day in the neighborhood...

They are happy tears or tears of joy. The little fellow was so excited and happy and we had to forcibly take him from his daddy's arms as they had to go to the armory and check in first and the baby couldn't go. They said that he got out of his bed in the middle of the night and was curled in his daddy's arms the next morning. (glad he waited until the middle of the night--they are still young you know.)

I am crying as I watch the video. I am so happy for them because he is home safe. I really, really am happy. They are a beautiful family and those little ones are so precious. God bless them all.

But I am also crying for my friends. I haven't been on here too much recently, because two weeks ago friends of mine lost their 21 year old son who was a Marine. He was murdered in Afghanistan by a 15 yearold who was supposed to be working with the Afghan police force. If anyone wants to know more about this wonderful young man, his name is greg Buckley, Jr. You can google him.

There were two other marines killed with him and I would like you to say a prayer for all their families. It has been a nightmare for them.

Lucile, I'm so happy for you that your son made it back safely. It was so heartwarming to see his reunion with his wife and kids and mom! I'm so glad this had a happy ending!!!
