So I’ve mentioned before about how happy I am that the decision to get a guide dog has led me to meet so many amazing people. I’ve just grown to care about my “blogger family” so much, that I so look forward to reading about everyone’s lives. I was just getting around to catching up on blogs today and I came to a blog I follow about a woman with twin girls and a husband who is in the military. I’ve just really fallen for their family and I think that if I were ever a mom, I’d be a lot like her.
The military always pulls at my heart strings anyway, so to read about a mom left in the states while her husband goes off to protect our country, reading the emotions surrounding being separated, the daddy missing the girls grow up, though with the amazing technology we have he can tuck his daughters in at night over the internet, wow. Doesn’t that make your eyes mist up?
I’m not gonna link to the post I read today because I like to ask permission, especially with such big news type posts and I didn’t ask her because I had to come over here and blog right away. I was just so emotional haha!
I was reading her latest post and I was all confused because she’s talking about going to an airport. And then she tells the guy in line behind them at security that they’re picking up daddy. I was saying out loud, is he home? Is he home? I thought he wasn’t due back until closer to Valentine’s Day. Then there’s a picture (which she does great descriptions for) and it’s a picture of her husband getting off the plane with the girls running to greet him.
Oh tears! Oh happy tears! Military reunions always got me when they were on tv and I haven’t seen those images now for so long. I felt like I was there today, reading this post.
This is just another amazing family I now know, all because I decided to get a guide dog. I know this post doesn’t talk about how I’m feeling about my dog per se, but getting to be a part of these lives is a reward I never imagined when I decided to add a dog to my family.
Oh PS – If I ask her and she says yes, I’ll do another post with the link.
