After the longest weekend of my life, the longest Monday on record & you all KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT THAT DASTARDLY DAY OF DAYS ~ our Marine is finally home!!!!
We waited & waited.....
What a feeling, that first hug was, well, words cannot describe it...see for yourself!!!!
I couldn't breathe, I couldn't talk....I couldn't let go of him!!!!!
Mr. P & Billy.....they were hugging on each other and laughing & crying!!!!
Mema (my mom) & her grandson!!!!
Grandma & Grandpa...we had a houseful & toasted our Marine with champagne :)
Ms. Nikky celebrating her brother's homecoming...I tried to get a picture of the two of them out in the driveway. Nikky is the older of the two but she is so much smaller than Billy & he swallowed her up in a giant bear hug!!! She was on her tiptoes hugging him & crying (I was locked in the car, Billy & Mr. P locked me in)
He was starving & I had cooked him a big batch of chicken parmigiana, Italian roast beef & ziti ~ what a face!!!
We're having a big welcome home party this Sunday for him!!! His friends were here last night for a bit, they were so happy to see him!!!!
I'm exhausted but oh, so happy and relieved!!! Time to enjoy :) & get to know my son again!
Thank you all for your support & your well wishes!!!
Cindy, thank you for your calls & your prayers!!! Billy got the biggest kick out of us chatting it up last night crying & laughing!!! It's almost your turn & let me tell you THERE IS NO BETTER FEELING!!!!
Until tomorrow, Be Safe & God Bless...please continue to pray for our Troops & especially Justin, Justin, Mark, Ryan, & Blake & those sweet Marines over in Okinawa, they are the best & I LOVE THEM!!!!
