This cowboy's hat is hung up with care and waiting till the return on his owner. It will hang on the wall until this cowboy/soldier returns back to swap his combat boots for his cowboy boots with the spurs. This cowboys hat will hang and think about all the times it and his cowboy/soldier has had and think about the fun times they will have when he returns. Sometimes this hat has to sit and hang out by itself while all the other cowboy hats get to go out to hit the rodeo circuits but there is something special about this cowboy hat., it's not like all the other cowboy hats, his owner is out there protecting and defending this great nation so other cowboy hats can ride the open range, chase them lil doogies, ride them wild bulls, but he knows his owner will return home one day. His owner will slap him on his head, and out the door they will go. So see, this cowboy's hat knows he is different then all the others, for his owner is not only a cowboy but also a UNITED STATES SOLDIER. So until the day his owner returns this Cowboy's hat will hang there on the wall with pride and honor.

May God bless the cowboy/soldier until he returns home safely and can wear the proud and waiting cowboy hat again! We are proud of all our cowboy/soldiers, and thank them for their service to our great country.

Hugs and Blessings,

We will want a picture as he swaps out to his cowboy duds. Love your post and so glad you are back. I know what you mean about the computer crashing. I had to start up a new one. Jim took a day off so he could go by the U of Wi surplus department and pick me up a new one. Well, a new/old one,lol. Not a bad deal, $125.00.
So now I can catch up as soon as I get my list populated. Best to you Dear!

I'm so thankful for your cowboy/soldier and others like him for all they do serving our country... My own Grand-SIL is scheduled to go in January. Prayers are already going up for him...so when you pray for yours please remember our Matt as well.

Good Morning Laura. I haven't really blogged in over a year now but decided to post yesterday. I seem to do Facebook most of the time, but I don't play games on FB on Sunday's, so I have decided to maybe blog on Sunday's. GOD Bless your Cowboy/Soldier and watch over him while he is gone and bring him home safely soon. I will just be so glad when all of our service Men and Women are home safe and sound. How are things going with you and your? Don't know if you know it or not, but I had a stroke last February and was diagnosed with Congestive heart failure as well. I already had type 2 Diabetes and now have high blood pressure as well. I am pretty much a walking drug store now. LOL. Take care my friend and hope to see you soon.

Love and GOD BLess you and yours,

Karen H.
