Yellow ribbon in my side- bar: coming down!

With great joy and with a heart full of praise and thanksgiving, I am taking down my yellow ribbon, again! Our son Joshua has finished his latest tour in Afghanistan and is celebrating with our daughter-in-law in Amsterdam, Netherlands before returning home for their first Christmas together (and in the States) sine 2005!!They were reunited when both landed at the airport in Amsterdam last night, she from Maryland and he, from Arifjan. My Mamma heart is so full ! Our family has had someone serving in the Middle East since the War on Terror began, with very little exception. We are all home for now! Caleb is not due to deploy any time soon , Jon only re-activated with the Marines and his unit had just left before he signed back on, Gideon is planning to be re-enlisted after the first of the new year. As we continue to pray for the many families who are still separated by military service, the sight of our own, at home, serves as a deeply -grained reminder of how precious life at any stage, truly is!!

WELOME HOME JOSHUA! Thank you for serving our country and our world! WE love you so very much!
