Sitting in traffic this morning I watched a plane lining up to taxi into TF Green and wondered just who was on that plane, I thought about all of the husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, friends, daughters and sons that fly in and out of that airport every day and then I thought of you....
Were you watching for your loved one to come down the escalator or were you one of the lucky military family members that is allowed to go to the gate with your loved one and then watches with tears in your eyes as they walk away to board the plane & you wonder....were you at a military base watching your loved one line up to board the bus to take him to an airport where he and or she will board a plane to go some place far away...
I just watched and then I thought of you and when for just one minute the sun came shining through the rain drops and there was a rainbow in the sky I knew you were thinking of me, of us and that you were o.k.
They enlisted we are the silent ranks, watching,waiting, and praying!
To every Military wife, husband, sister, brother, son, daughter, father and mother at home waiting serving in silence know that God hears our prayers and will continue to give each and everyone of us here at home and our loved ones abroad the courage & the strength to go on for one more day!
Courage is endurance for one moment more… Unknown Marine Second Lieutenant in Vietnam
