So Brave

Every damn day I watch the news I am blown away by the bravery of not only our soldiers but the families they have to leave behind. Bloggers like Tuna Girl and A Soldier's Wife? I just don't know where they find their amazing strength. I am truly impressed.

This video of a soldier surprising his family really got me today so I wanted to share it. Sniff.

Guys surprising their moms are the funniest. Women sure can muster up some big reactions. Lots of surprise vids on youtube.

Remember your psychic challenge? You said M as in March or May. Looks like it'll be March.

Got any psychic advice for lotteries or gambling? :0)

Stuffed - I thought of you when I was writing this but coudn't think of your blog name! If you recall I also said he would be fine!

If I had psychic lottery visions I would be blogging from the tropics right now!

The video made me so sad for the families that are apart. Thank you for reminding me to appreciate even more...

As for psychic lottery tickets -- maybe you could use your abilities to pull another blogger out of debt? Then I'd have to erase your debt too.... just a thought :-0

Thanks for the video. My husband is in the Nat'l Guard and will be deployed next year for a year. It's rough, but we don't really have any other choice, so we brave thru it and pray that ONE day maybe families won't have to continually go thru this.

I can't even fathom what it's like to not have my family with me. It's humbling, to say the least, and a much-needed reminder of things I normally take for granted. Thanks for sharing, and have a safe & happy new year!

'Fine' is my fave part. :0)

I'm predicting a lucrative book deal in your future. I'd like a percentage.

Lotta said...

Again, I think military families are amazingly brave. Absolutely my heros.

Stuffed - Oh man! If I get it I'm totally cutting you in for that prediction.

A Soldier's Wife..... said...

We find our strength and courage from those out there who remember that there is a War going on that there are Warriors fighting that War....

Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers....and I got a kick out of your blog....I will be coming back....

Happy New Year!

Tuna Girl said...

Awww, well, thanks. It's no big thing. ;-)

I can't watch that video. It hits way too close to home and makes me sob.

Lotta said...

Tuna - But it is. And I understand about the video.
