Blue Star Banner Ordered

Another item has been checked off my list. I wanted one of those "blue star banners" that I see in people's windows, serving as a proud reminder of someone in the home who is serving in the military.

I didn't think it'd be a big deal; just hop online and order the thing. But there was something emotional about doing it. It made me proud and sad at the same time. I'm so proud of Matt giving of himself for six months to help injured soldiers. He's proud of his assignment and I know he'll do amazingly well at it. But the pride was accompanied by sadness. Just another step closer to his leave date...

It makes me proud, sad, and concerned all at the same time. I Will try to remember all of you in prayer each day until his assignment is complete, and he has returned safely home. We also will purchase and display one to represent him.
