One of my dear friends is down in Colorado, meeting her son as he returns from a long stint in Afghanistan. The local television news did a segment on returning soldiers which included a photo of my friend, her son and his fiancee.
She sent me some photos and a link to the newscast. While I was watching on the link, Madelyn asked me why I was crying. My friend had such a tough year. We are all so thankful that he returned safe. (I always feel so foolish when I cry and no one understands why!)
