Mr. Webster defines the word, 'perfection' as the quality or state of being perfect: as a : freedom from fault or defect : flawlessness b : maturity c : the quality or state of being saintly
Hubster and I had a New Year's Day which was nothing less than perfection.
We attended an Operation Welcome Home event of an unscheduled flight. Chief was on this 'unscheduled' flight, because his scheduled flight was due to arrive on December 30th! He began his journey home on December 27th! Four delays later, Chief landed on U.S. soil. God is Good!
Awesomely Amazing is how I describe meeting this hero. I have e-mailed Chief for months now, while he was deployed to Iraq. Good Earth (where I work) held a Soldier Drive...we gathered and mailed nine boxes of goodies, which Chief was kind enough to distribute to Airman and Soldiers while on his convoys. The box of toys sent, were distributed to the Iraqi children at a Rec Center. Awesomely Amazing!
I asked Chief to let me know if he was coming home via BWI (Baltimore)...he replied that he would be returning home and his first stop would be in Baltimore. Little did we know all those days ago...how much frustration would fill the days to follow.
It matters not, at this point.
Chief is home!
Here are our photos:
(Our first glimpse of Chief coming through the security doors, a bit fuzzy but priceless!)
(We are so grateful for the Information Desk/Photo Takers of the world! Hubster, AirmanMom & Chief with a goofy AM homemade sign! Ask my kids, I am huge on making silly signs!)
(Hooray! One last security line! Next stop..Wright-Patterson! Home!)
May Almighty God Bless Chief and his family (did I mention he has two ultra-cute sons?)
I thank God my sons know the 'Chiefs' of our world.
