Sincerely 'Fro Me to You...


Do you have tickets to the gun show?



Ha. Meet T. He's lil' brother to La-La. (My BF since 6th grade!)




This is from the early 90's when La-La and I were roomies in college! T was visiting us. Probably because we were cool. Like so cool that on friday nights we would go to a trampoline place and well... jump.for.hours! And I tried not to pee my pants. Notice I said tried. Anyway, after that we would come home and watch Beavis & Butthead. Okay, did I just admit that?! T was in high school. He was a wrestler. And his greatest worries were weighing in and pinning his next opponent.




Now he has far greater worries. Like protecting our country. Our freedom. And coming home from Irag to his wife and three sons. Yes, he is a soldier. Anytime I am in the midst of a pity party about being a trucker's wife, I think of his wife & their family. And the other soldiers with families too.




I am not sure what T will think of this silly picture, but I do know he & his family will covet your prayers for them.


SINCERELY....

Those are some serious guns! I have a pity party when my husband work tii 7 in the evening.
*Tell him we are thanful for protecting us.

I too watched Beavis and Butthead...as an adult.

Happy Mommy said...

Wow! My SIL is a soldier now, she has only been in the Army since May, but boy it changes how you feel about your freedom when you have someone you love fighting for it!

D... said...

Wow, look at those guns! Now he's putting them to good use. I pray for his, & all the other soldiers' safe return home. My brother is in the Coast Guard and was deployed there a couple of years ago. He's home safely now. We are so appreciative of all who are protecting us. Please tell him so.

My Sincerely 'Fro Me to You is up too.

We are THAT Family said...

I think he'll love that you're thinking of him and sending prayers his way!

Great picture!

Thanks for sharing and reminding me today to be thankful!

I am thankful for his sacrifice for us. Soldier wives completely amaze and impress me.

HDMac said...

We thank God for men like your brother. Thank you for posting your pic and keeping him in prayers...

P.S. He loves you... said...

My son and I were joking about this recently and he said something like "talk to the guns." while flexing!
My very quick response was " what those squirt guns?" LOL!

My BIL was also my classmate since 3rd grade and he was always "flexing" around.

Great post, and thanks for reminding us to pray for the soldiers and their families that are making sacrifices for us everyday. Please tell T I will pray for his safety.

Thanks for dropping by my blog, Jerri's Journey. I'm glad your daughter is being a good example, too!

LOL, that caption made me laugh!

The Apron Queen said...

This pic reminds me of our own son. I'm guessing most boys strike this pose at one time or another. Tell him Thank you for us. Where is he stationed? I always wonder if my son or husband might know him.

Thank you to T for his service to our country. I pray for our troops and it is good to put his face with those prayers tonight.

Be blessed.

He must've gotten expelled from school . . . . for bringin' guns!! I crack myself up.

Takin' time to smell the flowers! said...

How cute! He's brought out the big guns! I will definitely keep them in my prayers. I can't even imagine. Boy could I tell you some stories that involve me, a trampoline and peeing pants. Lord, why can't you let me jump without wetting myself. I like to jump, but that other part, it's imbarrassing. Anyway thanks for the comment on my 'Fro post. Love your blog.

Kelli said...

Totally unrelated to the post, I was wondering how you are doing?
You haven't blogged in a while or commented I was just thinking about you. Hope all is well and you are doing good!
