Sandie here Today, as I watched Jake and Nick, I turned around and saw 4 Marines in full uniform - 2 carrying gifts for Nick, 1 with an amp, and one with a guitar. Another example of not knowing what will happen when you are at the Floyd/Taylor house ;) I enjoyed watching them patiently unwrap the gifts and hand them to Nick. .. especially because we were treated to one of those beautiful, but now rare, smiles. They kindly took requests from Nick as I started to panic. .. Tracy wasn't home and she is so great about recording these special moments so that we are able to share in her loving experiences. I started taking pics and video - a good way to focus and not cry. .. Tracy walked into the madness - she didn't even skip a beat! She sat down, snuggled with her puppies next to Dawn and Nick and listened to the wonderful gift being played. After, we walked out to see the Marine Hummer (fitted with siren, TV, and sword on the side), the knot in my throat grew as one of the Marines said, "I feel so bad right now. .. I came here to give you something, yet I'm leaving with so much more than I came with. " Welcome to our world, I thought. This family is loving, inviting, and is an example of true generosity. I selfishly don't know if I would want to share my son in these times. .. yet the whole family openly welcomes Nicks army. I love all of you and. ... enjoy one of our finest playing for our Nick...
