Ground Control to Airman Mom...

'Ground Control to Major Tom Commencing countdown, engines on Check ignition and may God’s love be with you' Not quite sure why I chose this song as my, 'I'm Back' intro... Hard to believe it's been almost two years since I last posted! Kinda like David Bowie's astronaut, things got a little bit turned upside down and a break from the blogosphere was needed. Things? Life. I'll unwrap details going forward, but for now I'll offer a quick recap of Airman Mom's life. John returned safe and whole from deployment! Praise God! He is now stationed here in the DC area...needless to say, I am one blessed momma! So grateful to have my son and his son within an hours' drive. I'm also enjoying the time with my D-I-L! Love this sweet family! B & V have added to our family! Grand baby #8 is a beautiful girl, named AnnaB. She was born last September, healthy and perfect! Hubster and I have been to SLC twice to spend time with this precious family! Honestly, there is nothing like seeing your child holding their child! My girls and their families are doing well! Hubster and I have been visiting new baseball stadiums every year...slowly checking off our Bucket List! So there you have it in a nutshell... All the good stuff of the past couple years! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Please join me in prayer for all those touched by the most recent tragedy at Fort Hood. May Almighty God protect all our brave service members.

Home...Very Soon!

Please continue to keep John, Di and the little E-Man in your prayers. John will be ending his six-month deployment very soon!!! Upon his return home, this sweet family has many adjustments... I know in my heart, they will overcome the challenges which post-deployment brings. This Momma is praying he returns through BWI... It will be so awesome to see John's face and give him a hug! May Almighty God keep peace in their hearts, as they endure these final weeks of deployment. May Almighty God watch over John as he travels back to U.S. soil. May Almighty God wrap this young family in his loving arms, as they settle into their new family life.

Please allow me to introduce an organization which helps the families of our wounded Warriors. Luke's Wings reunites our wounded with their families, helping with expensive travel costs. Here is the first paragraph of their Mission Statement: Luke's Wings is an organization dedicated to the support of service members who have been wounded in battle. Recognizing the immediate need for families to be with their loved ones at such a difficult time, Luke’s Wings provides families with the means to visit during the service member’s hospitalization and rehabilitation. By purchasing travel agency services and travel tickets for loved ones, Luke’s Wings provides an immediate and invaluable service to the families of our men and women at arms while also helping to encourage and motivate the service member’s recovery.

We must remember each and every Airman, Soldier, Sailor and Marine have a face.
Our brave Heroes have family and friends who love them so.
