We got a call today and Charlie will be coming home in about a week!!! To say we were excited would make you a Master of Understatement! Everyday he has been in Baghdad, Linda and I have been "way past nervous". We have watched the TV and read the newspapers and seen the tears of the parents that could only cry over a casket that had brought their child back to them. We cried with them. We hurt for them. We are so blessed to look forward to a big hug and smile. I do not have the ability to describe these feelings in words that would express their meaning. So now we have another homecoming and joy to celebrate! We look forward to more rides together and just the simple peace that no one is trying to kill him now!
