At Last

He's home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My awesome brother is home from Iraq and arrived back at his base in Hawaii last night. I wanted to call him ALL morning but since Hawaii is 4 hours ahead of New Mexico I had to wait until at least 11:30 am (7:30 his time) to call him. As soon as he said "hello", I cried:) Please join me in breathing a huge sigh of relief and a quick prayer to thank Heavenly Father for keeping him safe while he was gone.

Amen! Pray of thanksgiving! Check! Thanks to your family for their considerable sacrifices. I pray everyday that our men and women in Iraq (and elsewhere overseas) are safe.
