Today is the day...

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...

I am so happy for you. Joy is such a wonderful thing. It is a wonder how we spent so much of our lives pushing it away. At least I did. I hope your reunion is all you hope. I know this had to have been a difficult period of separation. It was an honor to pray for you and your son.

An empty trunk is the sign of a expectant elephant.
