My family and I had dinner at the Olive Garden tonight ( cheesy I know) anyhoo, after we ordered our meal a family of 5 walks in and the dad was in his uniform. During our meal our oldest was all chatty about whether or not he was coming home or leaving, for how long, if he was coming home how long did he have before he was suppose to go back. At some point our youngest had to go to the potty so I got up to take her and the mom of the family was in the bathroom and I just told her how my daughter had all sorts of questions and she was so nice she said that my daughter could stop by on our way out to ask any ? she had.
After our meal we did just that and we thanked both the soldier and his entire family for the sacrifice that they all were making. It was a pleasant conversation and at the end my husband bought them all dinner, he said that was the least he could do after all he does for our country. Funny thing is.....
