So here I am.
In my room, on the wireless Internet. And I have less than 2 weeks left here.
In 2 weeks I will....
-I will see my beautiful bride's smile and hear her laugh in person
-See Cooper in all is adorable goofyness
-Hear Chase say dadda in person...and kiss those cheeks!
-NOT smell...stuff that makes normal people wretch!
-NOT hear artillery go out
-NOT worry about IEDs
-EAT MY WIFE'S COOKING!!!!
-sleep in my bed...
Ah...the list could go on and on. But...I am here, done. And it feels good. I look forward to the post when I am home, and I hope to put down on here what I have learned while I was here. What the Lord has taught me. It has been alot. And I look forward to sharing it.
I will start my trip home in about a week. And I really can not wait. This has been a hard year. This second part of the deployment has been harder than the first for me missing my family. It has been a little easier on the army side. And there have been alot of big things that have happened. But, the Lord has been faithful, and has carried me through.
So thank you too all of our family and friends. God has used you to make this time easier on us. I can't imagine what it would have been like with out you all. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I look forward to posting the welcome home/reunion pics soon. Stay tuned on Facebook, Tiffs blog and here. They will be up in about 14 days!!!!!
