Home for Christmas

Our soldier daughter came home for Christmas last night. This will be the first time since 2006 that we will celebrate the holidays with her. This time, she brought along her new handsome soldier husband. I thank his family for so graciously sharing him with us this Christmas.

When our two soldiers arrived last night, it was the first time we'd seen our daughter since she deployed to Afghanistan. (I want credit for not crying. I came close.)

As you gather with friends and family this year, please think of those military families who may not be together for the holidays. My daughter says that the USO does a great job helping soldiers both here and in far-flung regions enjoy a holiday meal and some good cheer. Won't you consider supporting them?

Peace on Earth and Merry Christmas to all.
