Ok this is a post that is very near and dear to my heart and i wanted to share this with you. My husband served 13yrs in the united states army and recently got out back in february. We went through 4 long grueling deployments and he missed out on most birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, etc. This year i am lucky enough and more importantly grateful to have him home with us for the holiday season which is something most military families aren't so lucky to get. When you are married to a servicemember or related to one you know they have alot of tdy's or field time or deployments so you are lucky to get to spend a holiday or birthday with that person. This holiday season lets keep the servicemembers who are not home with their loved ones in our thoughts and prayers along with their families because the families sacrifice alot too and without them our military wouldn't be able to do their jobs. Some are away at basic training or at school or just deployed it doesn't matter they are all heroes in my eyes and i thank all of those who are or have served. I can't imagine how hard it must be for these men and women to be away from their families especially at christmas time. My husband used to tell me you got it easier because you have the kids and our family but i don't have anyone and i am pretty sure that is true. So when you open up presents on christmas day or sit down to eat christmas dinner please say a prayer for those who have an empty seat at their table. It's because of them that we have the freedom to celebrate the holiday season.
