My brother comes home from Iraq this sunday. Thanks to all for all your support on that. Its been a hard year.
I got this email today. Sometimes things like this make life and blogging worth while.
"You know, in June or July of 2004 you posted some links to military penpal websites. I was bored at work and happened upon your blog. I decided to sign up for military pen pals on one of the sites. I signed up on the site and viewed the members online that were looking for penpals. One of the guys I saw caught my eye and I was intriqued but didn't contact him, but I will admit I did daydream about him. The funny thing is within an hour of signing up, that same guy sent me an email, I had also caught his eye. Long story short, I wound up falling in love with a wonderful man who treated me like a goddess and loves my four year old daughter as if she were his own. I just wanted to tell you that if you had not listed those links, I probably would not have meet my husband. It sounds very cheesy, I know, but thank you. I guess it was one of those right place at the right time things but I thought I'd let you know about a positive difference you made in three peoples lives. Again thank you."
It makes me feel good in my sea of depression and isolation to know something I write on line means something to somebody.
I've been very effected by this war. Not only in regards to my brother but also to my very dear freinds with teh Stryker Brigade based out of Ft. Lewis, WA. I so love, love, love these heroes.
Check out this website for the most amazing photography and helmet cam footage from Iraq soldier warriors.

I so appreciate these sexy, hawt and amazing boyz. They know this and are such the fodder for many of my poems and even tattoos.
Thanks again for reading guys.
Dont forget our boys over there.
Yeah Bruce has a good song, but shit let's get them home safe and forever honor the service they did for us.
