Veterans Day!


Today has been very difficult for me, since my son left to Afghanistan last Tuesday. He called and said he was in Kuwait, but will be leaving to Afghanistan today. I am very proud of my son who had made an important decision to join the Navy, although I was against it at first. But I knew the decision was for him to make and I will always support him. This past week has been hard on my family especially Victoria and Isabella missing their brother already. Since today is Veterans Day I thought it would be wonderful to include these pictures on my blog. I also think about all of the families who have soldiers overseas taking care of our country! What a sacrifice everyone is making to keep us safe! Although it has only been a week, it has been very hard for me and can only imagine how I can make it through the next 10 months. But if my son is strong enough to be in Afghanistan, I can surely be strong for him here at home. So I ask this of everyone who reads this. Please pray for my son Christopher and for all of the military that are away for from their families.

Big HUGS Cynthia! I will definitely be saying a prayer for all the military families who will be apart in 2010. I appreciate the sacrifice, courage and bravery that they all give each and every day to keep us free! I know freedom isn't free and I cherish the men and women in uniform. God bless your son, you and your whole family!
Angel Hugs,
