My 2nd Surprise: Mom's Medal of Honor

 I  knew that I had "3 Surprises for Christmas". The first was the Sailor Boy showing up to pick up his brothers...unannounced to me. 

This was my second, from him and his siblings:


All I could say was- "Oh my goodness!" and "Wow!"...and fight back the moisture that came to my eyes...

Mommas..........your work matters.

 3 John 1:4  I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
