welcome home

I just wanted to jump on and leave a little note.

One of the marines came home today!

I love the smell of sweat and dirt. I am doing his laundry right now.

he called me at 7:20 a.m. and said "Mom I am at March and I have already kissed the ground."

When we picked him up he said "Thank you guy's for picking me up. It is nice to come home to someone."

I am going to go cook dinner for this young man.

I'm glad your marine is home safe and sound, and I hope he is just the first of many.  Hope you are feeling much better today.  That video was very powerful.

I know that feeling. I remember when Mark called from Iraq to tell me their tour was over and he would be home in two weeks. Even though he has been home since July, I am still amazed and thakful to have my guy home safe and sound.
