I am sorry but I have to brag a little here!!

Our local newspaper has a column on the front page of the local section that is called in Service and it mentions every Sunday a person from our community that is serving in the Military. A couple of months ago I emailed the person in charge and gave them Matthew's information. After a few weeks of back and forth emails I got an email about 2 weeks ago saying that it would be in the newspaper on the 14th so I have been waiting very patiently(anyone who knows me at all knows I am not good at this!!) for the 14th to come.
So today is here and in our Sunday paper I was just thrilled to see my wonderful son of whom I am so proud honored in the "In Service " section, I know it's probably not that big of a deal to some people but to me it is very big. I think of my son on a daily no on a minute basis every minute of my day. I don't usually brag about things,but My son being gone and so far away right now is a really big thing and I just wanted everyone to know about it.
If you click on the picture I believe it will make it big enough for you to read if you are interested. There are a few things missing but I figured it was a space issue. I had sent the fact that Matt is with the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment and they left out the cavalry part and I also mentioned that he has a sister named Jennifer that lives in Brentwood.
I just got his packages ready to mail tomorrow (Nov. 2oth is the last day for Christmas delivery) of his Christmas gift and I included a copy of the newspaper clipping and I also made him a picture cd which took me forever as I am not that good with a computer. I hope he enjoys all that we are sending. I was hoping to fit everything into one large flat rate box because they only cost $12.50 to mail and that is a great deal doesn't matter how much it weighs. But I just couldn't get everything to cram into one so I will be sending 2, I took a red marker and put MERRY CHRISTMAS all over the boxes. I am just weird aren't I???
I have a busy week ahead of me and I am really ready for it. I have a dr. appt. tomorrow after noon and I am working my fingers to the bone making some christmas gifts. I may post some pictures after I have some of the items completed.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed reading my post and that you come back and visit again. Have a wonderful week and may you be blessed by the Lord daily.
