Things I did not say to my son in reply:
I woke you up?
Kind of like the way you woke me up at 1am, 1:30, 1:45, 2:00, and 6:30? Like that?
Guess I was wrong to assume that his fever was gone for good.
He didn't seem to care when I told him in the night that I had hoped for a good rest so I could be looking my best the next day.
Nothing says hot wife like red, puffy eyes.
So you probably guessed that today was our big day!!
Despite the long night, we made it on time for Josh's arrival at 8ish this morning.
The squadron returned in a chartered plane. It seemed like forever after they landed before the doors opened and they started to file out.
In reality, it was probably about an hour.
But an hour feels like forever when the kids know that Daddy's on that plane. Here they are waiting...
They finally let us out of the hanger and onto the flight line. It was freezing! Typically windy and the ground was icy as well. The pilots were all in the back of the plane, and the last to get off.
Finally it was our turn :)
Point A- I did not realize at the time that there was a cameraman right over our shoulders as we were smooching. If I had known, I'd have put on a better show.
Point B- My husband has ridiculously small hands.
Point C- He came in for a kiss before I could tell him that I've had a sore throat since last night. Welcome home Josh! You have a sick kid and a sick wife. Boo.
But sick or not, it feels really good to be together again. All is well.
We're thankful for God's faithfulness in seeing us through another deployment.
Thanks to all of our family and friends for your thoughts and prayers!
ps- and thanks to Chester for staying behind in Korea!
