He's out!

Michael is out of Iraq! I couldn't be more greatful. His call woke me up yesterday morning. He's in Kuwait and will headed to Germany probably today or tomorrow. Who's a happy Mommy? I AM!!!!

Great to hear!! You have awaited patiently (as much as you could) and your heart has endured a tremendous period of anguish. With your activism and participation in trying to influence the social entities, Yh8 couldn't think of anything better and more richly deserved for you and your life.

Thank you for staying strong and living the example and congratulations.

Mary, believe it or not a huge weight is off of a lot of shoulders right now. I've been praying for Michael's safety since I first learned where he was. And of course after meeting your family, that made it even more personal for me. I am very happy for you and your entire family!

Yhate- It's all I wanted but I can't forget all the soldiers and their families who are still there or have not come home.

Robert- You know, I do believe it because there is just not a more supportive or kind community than the one I've found here blogging. I am SO thankful for every prayer and good wish sent on Michaels behalf. Thank you, thank you Robert. It means a lot.

Sending a mom-to-mom hug to you!

Oh blessed day, oh joyful day, Micheal is on his way home. I am so very, very, very happy for you. And don't let him out of your sight for at least a week. Impossible I know. Just "joy, joy, joy down in my heart for you..."

I can feel the sense of relief all the way over here in Oregon. Time to play the Hallelujah chorus.
Oh I can't imagine the sense of relief, prayers answered.
Here is to his safe return.
