today

I am sending out a package to a solider in Iraq.  He is a friend of mine’s son, who recently went over.  No, I’m not getting all political on you….I’m getting all Christmasy on you.

Yes, I sent it one stinkin’ day late and he won’t get it by Christmas…..but that’s not the point……the point is, I think the guys and gals over there, need to know how much they are appreciated.  They are fighting for us and giving so much of themselves and their families. 

I am embarrassed to say that it never really “hit home” with me the sacrifices they make, until I had a first hand experience of a mother on her knees, completely knocked down with pain from having to say good-bye to her baby. 

I know we all give so much to so many at Christmas, but how about when the season is all over……..put a troop on your list.
