Just sending love to my family and other wounded Veterans

Goodness, I’ve been completely stumped on a title for this posting. Maybe I should have just left the title blank because that doesn’t seem quite right.  

I  have always been extremely close to my cousin.  We’re three weeks apart in age and that made us have a very special bond/connection growing up and on into adulthood. She had her kids at a young age and I had the privilege of watching her kids grow up through the years.

My cousin’s son, R, is in the military (Marines) and is stationed in Afghanistan.  We found out last night that R lost his leg below the knee when an IED exploded. He’s in good spirits and has been in contact with his wife and his Mom/Dad/brother/sister. R and his wife have two young children (almost 2 and almost 3). He’ll be transferred to Germany before returning to the US.

    Please know we are praying for your cousin. We too have family in the military and know what it feels like to miss them and be concerned for them. I hope his recovery goes well and he is soon reunited with his family. Thank you for sharing.
