Thank God, the first group in Tim's battalion returned home safely to their families this week! Of course, I'm a little more than slightly envious that they're home before Tim even has a return date scheduled, but ever so happy for their reunions! I just have to keep reminding myself that God is in control and he will return Tim to our family in His timing. There is still a purpose for his company's efforts in Afghanistan and mine here at home, albeit without him. The pictures posted on facebook of the families hugging were absolutely priceless. There was one of a little boy who is only three months older than Adeline looking at his daddy that captured the whole "not sure who you are" emotion and another that brought me to tears of a two year old running to her daddy. Her father was rushing towards her, face fresh with tears. Love it! I CANNOT WAIT for this moment. God, I trust your timing, but I'd reeeeeallllly appreciate sooner than later for our family reunion...if that's Your will =).
