Once upon a time there was a girl that loved the military and was all for supporting America’s Heroes. She happened to come across a website that sells bags and such that were made from military uniforms.
She was all excited and wanted a purse…that is until she saw the price. 😛 The bags/purses were great quality and deserving of such a price, but it wasn’t really in her budget.
“Hmmm, I wonder if I could buy one on e-bay…and make my own” she wondered. After hours and hours of going buggy eyed staring at the computer screen, she narrowed her choices to two. And since her birthday was coming up, she put them on her wish list.
She waited for her birthday to come…it came and went…but no coat. BUT! Don’t misunderstand her, she wasn’t mad because she had other *great* presents. There was one more present though, she was told, that was coming in the mail….what was it????!!!!!
Much to her joy the package arrived several days later, was it her coat?
Well it was and it wasn’t.
It was her coat, but it wasn’t her coat.
Time slipped by and the one she had wanted ran off of e-bay ( 🙂 interesting way to put it huh?) before anyone could get it. So they looked for another one and found another one, a better one! This one had most of it’s patches with it, where’s the other one that she wanted did not.
Opening the package she was delighted to see camouflage staring back at her and ever so grateful to the giver!!! She went and put it on and was…well, ESTATIC!!! 🙂
The girl is me, and I am loving my birthday present! 🙂 If any of you happen to know what the patches mean, I’d love to know!
I know the cross means medic, and the U.S. Army is kind of obvious, 🙂 and then the American flag, but the others I don’t know.
And since I’m on this subject, I want to share one of my favorite websites that helps our soldiers.
For only $2.00 you can send a cup of joe (coffee), to one of our soldiers and write a little note. They are very appreciative of it and are blessed, it gives them a bit of home while they’re away. 🙂
So go on over and check it out! 🙂
