Baby Bear Is Coming Home!!!

     I know that I usually post about artsy things on my blog only....but, this time I am going to post about one of my greatest creations!! ( I have 3 actually)   His name is Rodney..and he is our first born. Two years ago he surprised his Dad and I with the news that he joined the United States Marines. We were hit hard with that news. No mother ever wants her children to be put in harms way EVER!! But, we have stood by him in his choice..and we are very proud of him. We have been on our knees the last 7 months as he was away on his first deployment to Afghanistan. Thankfully his job is on a computer so he was allowed to give us his email addy...we were allowed to chat with him from time to time. I know he will not like me telling you this but.... about every 4 to 5 days I would send him an email saying.... "This is Momma Bear calling Baby Bear, you there??" He would always respond...."Yes, Baby Bear is here and in one piece. Love you Momma Bear" ( I know, I am crying just thinking about it :):) Any way, all of this was said to tell you... BABY BEAR is coming home!!!!!! I am on my way to welcome him home as he gets off the bus. I can not wait to hold him in my arms again!!!  All my posts this week will be about him and me as I will be with him this week. So, no quilting or art stuff this week. I will be back on Friday..I think.?    I will leave you with a few baby bear pictures I found of him, and one of us together (years ago)
                                                                                   
Rodney at 2 months old! Sweet baby bear!!

Rodney at 8 months, walking the furniture!

Momma Bear and Baby Bear (with kitty) he is 2 yrs old.

My next post will be of him on base,  getting off the bus to the Welcome Home crowds!

Until then... Have a great day!!

My son is also a bit of computer geek with the Canadian Army. It was so wonderful when he was in deployed in Afghanistan to be able to chat on Facebook. I'm glad you were also able to keep in touch. Sets your mind at ease. So glad he is coming home. I'm tearing up just thinking how happy you will be to hug him again! Hugs to both of you.
