From Far Away, A Proud Papa

My friend Jim forwarded this picture to me in a collection of pictures of the troops. It stood out as particularly poignant -- first, because the young father is so far away from his wife and his new baby, but also because we are so blessed that we have the technology that he could almost be there.

Now, he will have a memory of his baby's first breaths, not just a memory that he wasn't there for this wonderful occasion.

The message that accompanied the photos concluded with,
The only thing harder than being a soldier ...
... is loving one.
But it was made a little easier for this soldier's wife, knowing that her husband there with her, at least in a small way.

Remember today and every day to pray for the troops, and their families.
