Tomorrow morning, my two lill kids (two oldes are with their bio father in PA till 1/4) will wake up at some ungodly early hour, probably only minutes after I finally fall asleep, LOL, and bound into the living room to rip into their presents with unbridled small-child enthusiasm and delight. Laughter, joy and shreiks of excitement will be the order of the day, along with chaos, mess, barking dogs and toys galore.

Tomorrow morning, another family will welcome home their son who has been serving in a far-off desert war. He will be arriving via special charter plane.In a flag-draped casket.On Christmas Day.My heart BREAKS for this family. I keep thinking of the song, "I'll Be Home For Christmas" -- only that's NOT HOW IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE! Dangit.

I have small kids who will be doing the "OMGosh, SANTA CAME WHILE WE SLEPT!!!" deal, so I will not be able to be at the airport to honor and show supportfor this Hero and Family. Thankfully, there are others in the Patriot Guard who CAN be there... even on Christmas Day. ( The dedication and sincerity of this group of Patriots - the Patriot Guard Riders - is truly a humbling and amazing thing to see and be a part of!)

Keep this family in your prayers and remember:

Only two forces have ever offered to die for you:

JESUS CHRIST for the salvation of your soul and forgiveness for ALL sins


THE AMERICAN G.I. for your freedom and safety.

THANK THEM BOTH TODAY... and do not forget.......

My heart & prayers are with this family........
