This past weekend we drove down to Virginia for a visit with J's family. We've only been back a handful of times since he joined the military. Rarely has it been for pleasure trips. We are usually on Emergency Leave when we travel to Virginia, having lost a family member.
But this trip was different. J's former brother-in-law and his wife threw us a huge (and unexpected) BBQ on Saturday. We attended after stopping to visit J's favorite aunt and the fire station where he clocked in countless volunteer hours. After church on Sunday, we were treated to a wonderful family luncheon. It was the perfect "Welcome Home".
