There are a lot of military families out there who are separated this Christmas. Thank you for stopping by to help remember them today. It’s easy to forget about our fighting men and women when we are just going about our daily lives. In this picture, my husband and I are at the wedding of our oldest son, which took place amongst the redwoods. I’m holding our grandson.
But these precious days wouldn’t be possible without those that have sacrificed, and in some cases, given their all so we could have a “normal” life, free from the worries and dangers we might otherwise face.
I think about the families separated this Christmas, and my heart goes out to them especially. They are having a Christmas dinner in a temporary home, sleep on a cot, love getting letters and packages from home. They play video games and read, and they think of their families. I include them in my family. And if I could rule the world, like I do in my military romance novels, I’d bring them all home safely tomorrow. Before Christmas.
But I’m a realist. The world doesn’t always have a happily ever after, like in our books. And, sadly, some must pay the ultimate sacrifice or come home wounded. I can only imagine the pain their absense causes.
And so I say thank you, for all you do for us. For giving me a Christmas and a whole life I will not squander.
