Because Not All Daddies Came Home

Jeff always came home.

I count this as one of the many blessings in our family’s life.

Four years as a soldier in the U.S. Army, and he always came home.

At the same time every day, after naps and snacks, Meredith and Kenny waited for him in the same place, on the back of the couch balanced between it and the window sill.

And he always returned.

But not all daddies came home.

Not all grandparents, mommas or children either.

Today, Memorial Day, is a day for remembering those soldiers who gave their lives for our freedom.

The number of deaths are baffling. An estimated 1,354,664+ soldiers have died defending our country since 1775, the American Revolutionary War, to present day.

Take a moment to remember.

Whisper a silent, “Thank you.”

Count your blessings.

And then, pray for those soldiers serving – even as we remember their fallen comrades in arms.
