To Mr Russell
May the Lord Bless You
If you’ve been around here for a while, you may recall me writing about my dear friend Jeneil over at Autism in a Word. Over the summer, we had the incredible honor of hosting Jeneil, her husband Brandon and their two beautiful children. They are the kind of people who reach your soul. They are people who live their faith. With every action, they embody the kind of grace and humility that most of us spend a lifetime trying to find.
Brandon is a soldier in the US Army. He is currently deployed in Iraq.
No matter how hard I have tried, I have never been able to get Jeneil to tell me what she needs. Finally – FINALLY – she has asked for something. In typical fashion, she is not asking for anything for herself. Her request is simple and costs no more than a stamp and a moment of our time. She is asking for cards for her dear husband.
Please, please take just a minute to add Brandon to your Christmas card list. This small gesture can help let him know just how much we appreciate his service and the incredible sacrifice he is making on our behalf.
There is no easy time to be away from family, but I can imagine that Christmas must be especially tough. Please, keep this beautiful family in your hearts and your prayers – and on your list!
