One Step Closer To Home

It's slowly becoming a reality. Last night we got a call from Chris..."hey Mom...I'm one step closer to home". It's not been the smoothest journey so far but at least it's a journey. There have been a few hiccups along the way but he didn't seem to mind. He had not slept in 24 hours but you certainly couldn't tell it by talking to him. He was on top of the world and so ready to be home.

As for me, it seems like my emotions are on overdrive. I can't believe it's almost a reality! Today my welcome home sign will go up and remain there until Chris actually returns to San Antonio. I want the whole world to know...he's almost home!

Take a picture of the sign. We'd love to see it.

Dottie I am so happy for you and your family. I know the feeling and believe me when I say that there is no other feeling quite like having your son home from war. You will have an unbelievable peace that will lift as soon as you know he is home. Looking forward to reading the post that says he is home.

Take care,
Lidia PAM of Anthony- home

My son John is supposed to touch down at 0400 Sunday morning. We are going down there tomorrow to get a bit of sleep before he comes in.

Thanks for all that you have done Dottie.
