Let the Little Children Lead Us

This is a note from Karin, head room parent for her daughter’s first grade class in Wooster, Ohio:

“Thank you for forwarding the 1st graders’ creations to the 1192nd. When I explained to my daughter what they were going to be making, she started crying because these soldiers are not going to be home for Christmas. I explained to her that our troops are protecting us and they know this is their job, but they will come home.

This just speaks of a tremendous little heart who wants everyone home with their families. She may not understand completely all that our servicemen and women do for us, but her six year old mind tries to understand. Madison is a very sweet and thoughtful girl and gets emotional when she hears someone is not going to be home for Christmas. So not only are our soldiers being thought of, their families are prayed for as well.”

Thank you Karin for your kindness and prayers for our troops and their families. You are raising a caring child we can all learn from. We are grateful for all that our servicemen and women do for us and the sacrifices they and their families make especially when they are not home for the holidays. Blessings of the season to all of you.
