A post of a different color
I don't usually use my blog as a platform for stuff like this but my little cousin (Yes, he's 21, but he'll always be a "little" cousin to me.) left for Iraq yesterday. He's in the Marines and will be on a 9 month tour of duty over there. Please say some extra prayers (if that's your thing) or send some extra good thoughts his way (if that's more your thing) over that time period. Whether or not we agree or disagree with the war/occupation/whatever you want to call it is irrelevant. I just want him to come home safe. He's more like a nephew or little brother to me and I love him to bits. What's more, his mom (my aunt) is more like a second mom to me and I love her to bits too. So if you've got some extra prayers/good thoughts left over, maybe send some her way as well.
