I got the news today while driving down Briarcliff; Matt is coming home. They are bubble-wrapping Baghdad right now, I'm sure. The news is that he should be home in time for Christmas. I almost had to pull off the road. It was tough to keep my composure. He has been gone for more than a year, and on his third tour. While this one was drastically different than the other two, much safer and far more stable, it was by far the toughest to wait through.
Thank God. And I mean that in the most prayerful way possible. Thank God.
