I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am right now for my best friend Chelle.
I can't begin to image what Chelle is feeling right now. I know she is a complete bundle of nerves: excited, nervous, anxious. She has been so strong through this whole deployment, and I'm so happy that it's all over, and Matt is returning home safe.
Thank you, Matt, for everything. I can't say enough thank yous for the sacrifices you've made for all of us. Chelle, I've said it before and I'll say it again, it takes a special woman to be an army wife (something I don't have), and I truly admire you. I am overwhelmed with joy for the both of you. Welcome home, Matt! We've all missed you!
Even though Matt's return is not a surprise, the excitement, love and happiness won't be any different. (Might want to go grab a tissue before you watch this. It really choked me up.)
