I am sitting here feeling like a kid on Christmas morning.  Presents staring them down, the desire to rip into them, but no...not just yet.  My "present" is my husband who is driving to our home for his first time from Ft. Polk, Louisiana where he just got back from a year long deployment.  He will be here in just one more hour!!! 

I am glad we live in a quiet neighborhood where the neighbors do NOT just hangout their windows waiting to see the business of everyone else.  Because, you see...I think my reaction to his pulling in the drive could easily be mistaken for an attack, although not violent at all! 

So much has happened during this deployment, the least of which was NOT the birth of our little Joshua while my husband was gone.  I can't imagine how it felt to be him; to miss out on Joshua's birth.  I am grateful beyond all measure to God above for bringing Steve home and bringing us together again.

Thank you ALL so much for your prayers, support, encouragement, etc. during this past year.  I don't know what we would have done without it.

Okay, I'm signing off for now...too excited to write anymore!  ;-)
