On the Fourth, we will be having our annual badmitten tournament. My writer son will come home to participate and to try to retain his title. It's going to be rough going for him. We've practiced.....
I'll never forget the first year my oldest daughter was in Iraq. The kids and I once again were enjoying a campfire and someone, off in the mountains, was setting off the most beautiful display of fireworks I've ever seen. My daughter called me and while the fireworks were dancing behind the mountains, we realized that we were looking at the same moon from opposite ends of the world. It was the farthest apart we've ever been but yet we felt so close.
My thoughts and prayers are to all of those in the military and their families - past and present.
