Before last night, I'd never heard this song. As they started singing it, it was all I could do not to cry. We have so many men and women who are away from their loved ones and I don't think it hit me just how hard that must be for them and their families til I heard this. The whole time this song was being sung I kept thinking of my cousin and her hubby. He's doing his second tour in Afghanistan and will be home soon but not til after Christmas. They have a new baby that will spend her first Christmas without her Daddy being able to be there and that's just sucks to put it bluntly.
So for Cherish, Chris, all our troops who are away from home and family and those we've lost.......this is dedicated to you.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. You are not forgotten.
