    *Probably hopping up and down with anticipation!*

    I was told Mother was literally uncontrolable the few days before I returned home after a gap of two years.

    Of all the people in the family, I think separation hits the Mothers the hardest.

    Enjoy that time together, grandma2b

    Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay, Marla !!! I can feel your excitement !

    So very delighted for you ! What a wonderful Christmas it will be. (((HUGS)))

    I've actually been feeling just a tad guilty for having been able to see Adam so much recently, while you and Julie have hardly seen your soldiers at all.

    But now it's your turn, and I am just sooooooooooo pleased for you !!!

    awww marla how wonderful for you, your family, and for your daughter that is coming home. i felt your excitement and couldn't help but smile a "familiar joy" for you since i had the pleasure of welcoming home two of my own daughters years ago when they served in the armed forces.

    ((((((merry christmas marla and family!!!)))))) :santa1:

    Marla - so happy for you.

    My son got here about 2 hours ago.

    We had a taco feast and he made airplanes for his 3 year old brother and now he and Dad are watching a football game.

    Life as usual.

    Thank you, all........Now it's only about 25 hours until she gets here, but who's counting?

    She only gets to be here for 9 days, as she's in charge of everyone's holiday itineraries and has to be back earlier to keep track of them. Then when she graduates from AIT March 4th, she may get to come home for a short time before she ships out to God knows where......but I won't let myself think about that now.

    Bless you all for your good wishes...this has already been a wonderful Christmas season, and the holiday isn't even here yet. I hope all of you have a Christmas that's just as wonderful as you are!! :icon_mrgr :Holly3:
