i told him he was not far, he was in my heart. Twinkie wrote the lyrics to a song we've chosen to remember while he's deployed in Iraq for a year:
"Somewhere out there someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another in that big somewhere out there
And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star
And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky..."
-from "An American Tale."
He's our Fieval.
i miss him so much! 364 days to go...
he just emailed us his new mailing address so i have a huge favor to ask from my heart. He knows about my blog and knows how close i feel to you all.
Would you do me a favor and send him a card? a few simple lines of encouragement to my brother & it would mean SO much to me. So very much. He doesn't know i'm asking you guys so it would be a WONDERFUL surprise. (For those in the U.S., it's a regular stamp to send.)
please email me at micaela.lechugaATgmail.com and i will send you his mailing address happily! thank-you!
thank-you, thank-you, thank-you with all my heart. xoxo
