Another Christmas Story

One of the really minor annoyances of my husband's job is that he is tethered to his office by a cell phone and a Blackberry 24/7. Calls come in at all hours of the day and night - they track him down at the grocery store and the gym on those rare times when he still gets to work out.

But sometimes, as on Christmas Day, we get a call like this one as we were driving on 270. And now that it's on the news, I can share it with you.

A nice story. Love and honor are always to be found in the same place.
Congratulations to the young couple. And nice going Navy and Marines.

You never said your husband was an admiral, Cass! Well, I suppose saluting you is gonna be a lot easier than the full, formal prostration I was forced to endure when you still reigned as Blog Goddess, your former majesty.

Isn't it amazing how God takes something bad and turns it into something good? For example - This poor kid lost his arm and part of his shoulder, so God gives him another shoulder to lean on. She comes in the form of a loving soul mate. He even sends the top chaplain from the Marine Core. Cool stuff.

One more time this proves to me how much I like God. He is always doing this kind of stuff.Not just at Christmas time though - it seems to happen all year round. :)

Thanks for pointing this story out, Cass... very nice story.

Not an admiral, afe... not hardly. Though it took one to make this happen. Full marks to the Navy. As usual, there's a story behind that :)

I'm glad you all liked it. I hoped KJ wouldn't mind my butting in while he was away since both these stories were about our guys. Otherwise I wouldn't have, but I thought they were nice things to hear when there is so much negative in the news.

Anyway, I'm glad he's back now.

You are always welcome to butt in, Cass. Especially, but not just, to give props to our guys.

Welcome back, KJ :)

That is my first wish for the New Year, come true.

Nice story Cass ... the press likes to harp on the statistics of marriages that fail while or after a soldier is in Iraq, but don't seem to cover this kind of story enough.

A sad yet really moving story.

This song 'Paper Cuttings' was writtn by my son Francis, inspired by Katherine's bravery.

Please pass it on. Not sure how we could get it to Katherine or if it is OK to do so.

Best wishes
