Brace yourselves, I’m linking up again. I’ll probably do a lot of linking up and maybe even sporadic posting over the next couple weeks. The deployment is approaching fast, just bear with me. Once Dallas leaves I’ll be lonely and you’ll probably all get sick of me.
I wish I could put my fingers together and stop time like that girl from Out Of This World.
Anywho, my friend Jamie over at Chosen Chaos does a Twosday link-up. Two of whatever you’ve got. She’s got twins, I’ve got twins twice.
I have two of almost everything. But today was a bittersweet double when Dallas brought home Battalion Buddies for Reese and Jackson. (Taryn and John got one too, but are way too cool to pose with them!)
The Battalion Buddy is a gift from Operation Gratitude. The purpose of this organization is to boost morale for deployed service men and women, the families they leave behind, and wounded warriors. They send care packages to the service men and women and the Battalion Buddy to their children. This is the tag attached to each stuffed animal.
Since our time is just around the corner, Reese and Jackson now have their Battalion Buddy. Two buddies to help them through the long road ahead.
People always ask me what they can do to help Military Families. I usually don’t have an answer because I suck at life. But if you want to help, go to the Operation Gratitude website, they have better answers than I do.
Sidenote: It appears that Jamie is no longer doing the link up. As Rick Perry would say, oops…
