Coming home...










We had our 1st wave of homecomings yesterday and it was glorious. I was moved to tears numerous times....driving to base...walking in the hanger...feeling the 747 fly over us...watching the door open to cheers...and seeing these families reunite. It was beautiful and it made me so proud. Only a few of our squadron members came home yesterday but it was wonderful to see them back on U.S. soil. Our squadron color is red. Our wives group has decided to try to wear red dresses when our spouses come home. These ladies were looking good yesterday :) Here is the plane arriving. Everyone anxiously awaiting their loved ones. I didn't know the majority of the people coming home yesterday but it didn't make it any less emotional. I was standing behind this family. The deployed father surprised them from behind. It was so cute...and then I cried some more :) This lovely family had their 2nd boy while daddy was deployed. He is meeting his new lil boy for the 1st time. This couple is close friends with Mr and I. We came to Idaho together and he flies with my husband alot. It was beautiful to see them reunited. We've shared the pain we've been going through without our husbands. Only a fellow milwife can really understand what you're going through.
The fun (and tears) are just beginning folks. We have a lot more homecomings coming up. Who's ready???

That made my eyes tear up! I can only imagine how many tears of joy and happiness you'll shed. Now for your fellow wives and esp when your hubs comes home.
