Oh that is fantastic Julie!!! Happy times! Oh and I wanted to tell you what a great idea that was for that frame and the toile fabric. I've never seen a Peter Rabbit clock before, but I think it looks very awesome in front of that rooster fabric. xo ~Lili

so happy for you Julie I know we could get a letter every single day and still it wouldn't be enough. Trying not to think ahead just trying to get through each and every day. This one day at a time thing is for the birds doesn't God know I have no patience??? lol. Here's hoping both of our "boys" and everyone elses "boys" are all home safe and sound and very soon.nancy settel p.s. are you still sending the baby wipes in Justins boxes? Jeff said they always need them and to keep them coming I thought he might be getting to many but showers and feeling clean over there isn't to easy. I am so mad at Starbucks and after he gets home will never step foot in the place again. Jeff has not been having anything but instant coffee so I started getting the Starbucks Double Shots he loves espresso and he really likes the cans of these drinks. I get them at Walmart for $5.99 for 4 cans so when I was in Starbucks I asked if they donated any for the troops and they said NO WAY!!! I had his address, his picture everything with me and I told them I would pay for the shipping just would like to find out if I could get a donation or discount on them, after all this is what keeps Jeff running during the day. They finally agreed to give me a 10% discount that brought the price down to $2.00 a can!!! $.50 MORE than what I can get them for at Walmart. I was furious. No more of my business for Starbucks. phew that felt better. hahaha. nancy

Oh Happy Day!!! Oh Julie, Praise Our Lord because He is soooooo Gooood.. I'm so happy for you, so happy that Our Lord listened to our prayers. I haven't had a chance to blog as often as before, I have busy filling forms, re-reading medical exams, researching, and getting lots and lots of headaches and of course, praying, praying and praying.

We are still praying for that call. Blessings and hugs!!

Juls-I just finished reading a book called 'Dream While Your Blue', it was set during WWII and a big part of the book were the letters sent back and forth. I thought of you alot during it! What joy those letters must bring to your heart. I laughed at Nancys comment cause I knew it was her before I even read who it was signed by!

Cindy Lou said...

Oh...I know that those letters are priceless and no matter how old they may be it is a thrill to get them!!! I am so happy that you got mail and I hope that not too much longer and your Justin will be home!! Enjoy your letters!! Hugs from this Marine Mom to you!!!
