2009 was a great year for me. I have much to be thankful for, most of all family and friends. I am also blessed to have met so many wonderful Military families that support each other through it all.
With all the goodness that has come my way, my heart remains heavy with the burden of knowing that my son and all our deployed troops are in harm’s way.
Life goes on, so they say. And it does, except for those moments when I am alone and this sadness overwhelms me and the tears start. Or when a friend asks me if I heard from my son and I can hardly speak.
At times like this, I remember to “look well into thyself; there is a source of strength which will always spring up if thou wilt always look there.”
So here we are, another New Year’s Eve. While people are out partying and having a wild time, I am simply thinking that my son is one day closer to coming home.
Have a happy and healthy 2010. HOOAH!
