Missed phone calls

I ran to the mail room, then over to the PX to see if they had any poster board (which of course they didn't) so we'll go downtown to a store that I KNOW has some and get a couple for the boys to draw on, on Sunday when our FRG gets together to make Welcome Home Signs/Banners. I ordered one and I'm really hoping it gets here next week, because it's now getting a little too close to comfort of when they come home. :)

Anyways.....I got on here about 10:40 am and saw Chad had sent me an email at 10 am. :( Then I get home from the mail room and px and my answering machine is flashing....Chad called at Noon, it was 12:35 pm :( I am truly sad that I missed his call. I do love that I get to hear his voice over and over. My answering machine only holds 16 messages and as of right now I have 15 saved, all of Chad.

We've got about 2-3 weeks left and let me tell you I'm just almost coming out of my own skin ready for him to just be home. He is in Kuwait now. He's safe, but so very, very busy. He sounded really tired. Please keep him in your prayers. I know that he's safe though and I praise Jesus for that!


I'll try to keep you updated.


God Bless and thank you for any and all prayers. Thank you also to all who helped in donating to the single soldiers either with sending a monetary gift or actual items. This weekend our FRG leader will be buying the towels and sheets and pillows. I know there's still some more money coming from at least one of you and that money will go to the soldiers, we're going to be making cookies for all the soldiers and the money can go towards those! :)

So you know our account went from about $150.00 to close to $3,000.00 in a matter of less than 2 months! Thank you! You truly made it possible for us to make the soldiers rooms welcoming!

So sorry you missed Chad's call- but not too much longer and you won't have anything to worry about. I look forward to seeing all the pictures of the Welcome Home ceremony-

Thank you for allowing us to "somewhat" experience this depolyment with your family. Todd and I were more than happy to help with what we did. Kudos to your family!

I'm sorry you missed Chads phone call, believe me I know how upsetting that is.  YEA for him being home in less then three weeks!!!!!!!!!   I'm glad he's in Kuwait I would imagine that eases your worry somewhat - of course you're going to worry until he gets home into your arms.  One of the best part of the deployment is making banners and signs for the welcome home because that makes it real.  I'm so happy for you and will continue to keep Chad in my prayers.  Leene
