My Great Son-in-Law Stationed in AFGANISTAN

Here is a short tribute to my adored son-in-law who is stationed in Afghanistan. I have known this young man since he was about 9 years old, and was lucky enough that he has excellent taste in women after he proposed to my oldest beautiful daughter . A terribly romantic proposal with a gigantic diamond ring hidden in a glass she was about to drink out of ( after he cooked her a gourmet meal ). He did ask my husband for our daughter's hand in marriage before he proposed as well.
He is respectful and polite...always.

 Here they are below with my youngest son being goofy. They had a Christmas party at their little duplex, and it was the best Christmas party I have ever been to. Too much food & cookies, drinks, and Christmas trivia games...good clean fun.

My daughter had just finished law school and she is an attorney in a local practice. Working wayyy too much. She is not only beautiful, she is the strongest Christian I know. She is a constant inspiration to me. I am amazed at her most of the time. And she picked a real winner with my son-in-law.

He is the most pleasant person to be around, very, very funny...and the BEST person to cook for as he likes everything I make. He helps me when I cook big family dinners , he sat on a stool one Thanksgiving and popped up to help me whenever he thought I needed something. I did not even have to ask, before he took the initiative and did what I needed. He plays with his brother-in-law who is only 9 years old with Nerf guns, or whatever game they come up with . He makes my little one feel loved and appreciated.
So you see, God has blessed our family with this remarkable young man. He is very proud to be serving our country, he is VERY patriotic.
I love this guy !!
I cannot wait until he is back home , Mrs. Safety-first ( me ) wants him back with his new bride of two years.

Bless our service men and women , pray for them ,

  1. Dear Gina ~ May God's blessings be on your son-in-law (and the rest of our military forces, and their spouses and families as well), as he does his duty serving our country to keep it free. Hope he comes home soon.

    Gina my son went all the way to Ireland from Scotland to speak to his future father in law to ask for his permission and blessing there in Feb.

    Some day I hope and pray that your prodigal returns.......... as I type this I'm reminded of that song by Keith Green. (((hugs))) Rosie
