Waiting for Grandson's Return
This will just be a short blog today, as I stop to reflect on what I am feeling today. Our grandson is just finishing up his 2nd tour of duty in Iraq, and due to arrive home in a few days. Oh, how I wish I could be at his homecoming ceremony, but have opted to give he and his new bride some much needed R&R before company shows up. They got married about a year ago on one of his leaves, and we have had the joy of meeting her when they came up to visit last year. Right now we're sitting on pins and needles waiting for word that he has gotten out of Iraq and debriefing in Kuwait. We will be so thankful to have him back home, and can't help feel for those who's sons and grandsons won't be coming home. Our hearts go out to them and we wish them God's healing touch.
I am really looking forward to April 1st, as they have invited me to come for a visit. It will be a grandma's dream come true, and I will finally be able to see my grandson again, and meet his bride's family. More on his arrival when we hear.
