Today can have a lot of names:
Travel day... stress day... reunification day... homecoming... but more than that, it's Memorial Day. A day we stop to honor those who have and who are serving our country VOLUNTARILY! Yes, we get paid, a meager salary for what we are asked to do, but it's not about the pay check. It's definitely like the old adage says, if you can read this thank a teacher, if you are reading this in English, thank a Veteran. Please stop today, put down your beer & bar-b-que, and remember that some gave up their abilities to enjoy these luxuries so that EVERYONE, sometimes not even our own people, can have these opportunities.
So, I am about to board a plane to go get our little dude from the baby house. Not really looking forward to the flight, it's always a hassle you know. Maria leaves today heading back to Germany to reunite Big G & Little G... family is almost complete. I will be back on blog duty for the foreseeable future... at least until the whole family is back together. The next few weeks will be a whirlwind, and I'm sure totally frustrating at times. I will try to be honest in everything that happens so you all can see what we are going through. Plus I will try to sprinkle in some of the cultural stuff you have become accustomed to from me.
Please follow along again & say a prayer for safe-travels for my family... the end is in sight!
See ya'll tomorrow!
