Today is just one of those days when I really miss Dallas. For those of you who don't know Dallas is my 3rd oldest brother and he is currently in Iraq. Every now and then I have "One of those days". He will be home on the 25th for 2 weeks. This is not his first tour of duty. His first tour was right out of highschool. Since that first tour he has served a full time mission to Geneva Switzerland and has married and had 2 beautiful little girls. I can say that I am one of the proudest little sisters in this world.
It wasn't just him that first time....It was all 3 of my brothers. They served this country ever so willingly and are my heros. Ryan my oldest brother was married and had just had his first child, Tyson was newly married, and Dallas was fresh out of highschool. They sacrificed so much to serve and though they missed a lot of things, I have never heard them complain. They served with all their hearts.
There is a song my brother Tyson heard when he was in Iraq. Its called "A Soldier's Heart" by: R. Kelly. I had forgotton about this song until recently. It is a very extremly inspiring song. It is a source of Strength for our family. It makes our sacrifice of 1 years without a brother, a husband, or son, seem so worth it.
We are aware of the danger we are aware of the risk, but we do not fear. We put it in the hands of Lord and trust in Him. We know that if something were to happen we are a family forever and we will always be a family. Please Pray for those Men and Women so honorably serving in our Armed Forces. THANKS TO THOSE WHO SACRIFICE FOR OUR FREE NATION.
