Celebrate Me Home, Kenny Rogers

Mom hugging son


Click on the above link for a wonderful rendition of the heartfelt song by Kenny Rogers. The raw emotion of the mother greeting her son is tear-jerking! The other day I was shopping for boots for my three daughters and while checking out, I met a very strong mother. The checkout clerk is a mother of three sons all serving our country. I cannot imagine the daily stress she feels and the absolute joy she feels when they come home, especially for the holidays! I do not know what she goes through daily because I have daughters that are not in the military service, but I do so appreciate what these men and women sacrifice for our country. During the holiday season pray for those who serve our country and especially for those that cannot be “home for the holidays”

I love this one! The image of Dad waiting for his son’s Santa request for “Dad to come home” is just so sweet!
