Yesterday at Canyon High School in New Braunfels, Texas was the Re-Deployment Ceremony a.k.a. "Welcome Home Ceremony", and it was short and sweet!!! As parent's Frank and I have been very humbled by the grace God has shed on us by bringing our son back not once but twice. I remember the days where I would torment myself by thinking, "no way can we be that lucky twice???" Well luck had nothing to do with it. We have been blessed beyond belief. Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, and well wishes during the last 4 years or so.
We will forever pray for those still over there fighting this war! Whether you like the war or not, whether you believe in the war or not, We Are At War! Once a week Frank is reminded of that and reminded of so many other things when he has to go and work at B.A.M.C. (Brook Army Medical Center), here in San Antonio, he sees so many YOUNG soldiers that have been burned over their entire body, soldiers that have lost limbs and so on , so please keep praying for our men and women over there, for our leaders and for all of the families who are apart right now and for the families who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Hug each other , love each other really hard and do this every day. This is what our God has asked us to do, be thankful for your lives, even when your day sucks, always ,always at the end of the day be thankful. Again , THANK YOU , THANK YOU , THANK YOU, WE LOVE ALL OF YOU. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
There is Steven!!!! In the back , right in the middle of the group!!! I know he was thinking, "Oh Lord, there she is ....my mom with her camera!!!!!
If you look real close, you can see Steven with his arms open and his cap flying!!!!!
This is the Segarra Family. If any of you remember from way back in my blog, the first time Steven went to Iraq, he specifically told me, "Mom , trust me I will take care of him and he will come home", well he did and I thank God for him!
This was made by someone for the entire Batallion to sign, I thought that was pretty darn special!
"Our Soldier" Gosh we love him, and we are so proud of him!
