I get to see my son for the first time in 1 year, 1 month, and two days. I am very excited and happy about this.
I went to the 6:30 meeting yesterday morning and that room erupted in applause when I shared that my son was on his way home - just like the group on Friday night. I am so grateful for the people who have kept my son and I close to their hearts in the last year - including you bloggers. THANK YOU.
I spent yesterday sprucing up the house. I rearranged the furniture on my deck and bought some new flowers. I put Christmas lights on some trees outside for a more festive touch for my son's homecoming. It felt so wonderful to be getting ready for this long awaited occasion.
Now I have to clean out my trunk. They search your car on the way into the Army base, and I might as well make it easy for them...
