A letter from a deployed father to his son

My husband just emailed this to Drew and I had to post it. It made me cry.

"Hey Drew Bear,

Daddy misses you a lot and can’t wait to see you and your brother and sister. I hope you are having fun in school and are being a good boy for mommy. When I get home I hope to do a lot of fun stuff with you and your bro and sis. I am missing you, but remember what daddy does is important and I am making the world a safer place every day I am away."

I will, Jen! Thanks! He thinks I'm nuts with all these, so and so says thank you's, but I don't care! He needs to know he's appreciated! :D
Somehow I think he'll be embarassed when he sees I've posted this, but I needed to share it. It was so sweet, and so true!
