My nephew is coming home ..

I just found out .. i knew he was supposed to be home from Iraq
before Christmas .. but he said he was not 100% sure that he would
be able to make it here (VA) from KY ...
He is safe .. and he is hungry ... he can not wait
till the 18th to get home .. told me he wants some ribs ..
and some cold beers .. i think i can do that ...
and he is coming over for Christmas day ..
so this is going to have to be a blow out ..
I am so proud of him i can not put it into words ..
I have been the only stable male in his life ..
he is like a son to me ..
i am just giddy ..

tell him "thank you" for us, for his service. and merry christmas.

Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze? Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

I'm so happy for you "Q" and your nephew. Two of our sons served, one in Desert Storm, and we couldn't be more proud of our service people.

Give him a great big hug from me and an even bigger "Thank You."

Let the ribs and beer flow freely.

Big "hugs" to you for your loving heart.
