I'm dishing out humongous spoonfuls of my Vegetable Soup of Emotion!
I spoke with my son, B in Afghanistan! I am so blessed, it was the third time in a week! Pure Awesomeness!
He will start the prep process to come home this Friday! Yay!
All he is thinking about is finally getting home! This is where the fear enters.
In about two weeks, he will begin his voyage home!
As much as I am so super excited about him coming home...I still pray that he will return whole in body and mind. Perhaps I read too many military e-mags. I know our soldiers are coming home messed up and it pisses me off. Ok, ok... we have lost oodles of young, brave men for generations in war. From the stats I read, our soldiers are more prone to harm in the first two weeks and the last two weeks of deployment.
Almighty God in Heaven...I pray you protect my son and bring him home whole in body and mind.
