As most of you know, myself and Mr. Matt have started a blog where people can submit questions concerning Iraq and the War on Terrorism. This blog has been up for a few days and the number of questions we have answered already amazes me. But that is not the special gift I am talking about here. It is the gift of thanks. If you go over to our blog
, you will see questions from Maria. They are not complex questions, but more than likely questions many people have thought. We, as promised, answered them as quickly as we could. I recieved an email thanking us for replying so quick and honest. I emailed her back and told her no need for thank you, it is myself and Matt who should be thanking her and everyone else that submits questions.
A few minutes ago I checked my email, as I do everynite before hitting the rack for some snoozetime, when I saw an email from American Greetings
sent by her. What I saw and read touched my heart on many different levels. This being 'tis the season and all the holiday cheer as the rest of the world prepares for Christmas, and the New Year with their loved ones, she managed to find a moment to remember the troops, for although she sent it to me, it was meant for all the men and women who are overseas fighting and can not be home with their loved ones. I would like to thank her and her family for their thoughts. This will be one of those moments in one's life that you never forget. That some stranger you have never met, reaches out and lets you know that what you are doing at that moment, means something back home. In closing, I would like to thank everyone who has supported us, believed in us, kept us in their thoughts and prayers while we battle in our darkest hour.......
