What could be better for a Pink Saturday post than the fact my heart is filled with love and pride and so much happiness and relief that my oldest son, Michael is home for good - from his deployment in Iraq!! These two little ones he is holding are acutally his brother-in-law and sister-in-law -its TRUE.
The family attended the Welcome Home ceremony yesterday morning and last night we had a surprise welcome home party for Michael in our new home - everyone had a good time.  On Monday, he will be "recognized" along with other servicemen and servicewomen at his old elementary school - where his youngest sister is now attending - during the 9/11 tribute.
This is the happiest and most content I have been in a long time - Happy Pink Saturday!

Welcome home to your son! Thank him for his service. Have seen that uniform many times over the years on my own son. He served in Afhganistan after 9-11 and he too came home safely. We are blessed to have our sons safely with us. As a Military mom (he is in reserves now) I know your joy and now you can breath again. May the Lord richly bless this young man, and all your family. Thank you for sharing a post that has tears streaming down my cheeks. Been there, know that feeling, so happy for you.
