My brother is fighting the battle every day. We don't hear from him very much, and when we do, it makes me really happy, but sad too... sad that he is over there fighting. My mom and I are wearing these bracelets that say "Pray for our Troops" -- I am wearing mine until by brother comes home! It is a good reminder to constantly pray for God's safety for my brother and pray for God's peace for his heart. I can't imagine what those forces are dealing with over there. Prayers are always welcome.
I spent last weekend with my in-laws in Denver. It was fun -- one of the activities we did was our nails -- in honor of my brother I got pink camo nail polish. So far so good.
