WW - He's Home!!
We've been counting down the days since he left and slowly the days went by til FINALLY he was in my arms again! We got up Saturday morning and drove to Springfield early hoping he would be able to catch an earlier flight than his 3PM flight. He called me as we were leaving and said he got a flight leaving at 1030 and would land at 1200 good call on my part to be up and ready early, he called again and said that the weather in Atlanta was crappy and his plane was delayed a half an hour so we had to kill another half an hour but we did it in fact we over killed our time and were worried that we wouldnt make it in time. We got there and found no line at the check in counter so we got our passes to go back to the gate and wait for his plane to land.
I have the BEST FRIENDS in the world they all came with us to welcome home My Favorite Soldier THANKS GIRLS YOU ROCK!
It seemed like it took forever for his plane to get here but finally we saw it land and after what seemed like the entire plane emptied I saw him!
The kids were too excited to wait for him to get to reach us and met him at the door.
Then it was my turn he was in my arms and all was right with my world once again.
There was a little old lady who took pictures of us waiting for our soldier and thanked him and me for our service it was really sweet. After every one had thier chance to welcome My Favorite Soldier home we started to leave and thats when this old lady came up to me and hugged me and said " I was a WWII Bride my husband was a POW but he came home and we had 57 years together I hope you and your soldier have atleast that many years together" Then she hugged me again and said "were sisters you and I" and then she left I was in tears it was probably the sweetest thing someone has ever said to me.
I am sneaking this post in while daddy is reading the kids a story and getting them ready for bed .... how sweet it is to get a break from that. I dont know how often I will get a chance to post, but I wanted to you all know he is here safe and give you a little sneak peak of the pictures. I will share the rest soon!
