Only in Their Dreams ...

[By Vic Harville, Political and Sports Cartoonist]

Let us take time out from our Christmas celebrations to remember with sincere gratitude our servicemen and women who are risking their lives every day to keep America out of harm's way.

May God protect them as they protect us, and bless them and their families for the sacrifices they make for us — especially at Christmastime, when they'll be home for Christmas ... only in their dreams.

Janie, I think our minds traveled the same road today. I had another post idea this morning when I started posting but for some reason I was drawn to our boys and their Sacrifice.
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas season. Yes you are right so many will be home only in their minds.

What a beautiful and heart-felt post. This Christmas, our family adopted a soldier to pray for and write. The Christmas song "I'll Be Home For Christmas" has been in my thoughts a lot, too.

May you and your family have a Wonderful Christmas, Janie.

Best Wishes, Jenni
