thank you kim and im so happy you had a wonderful time !

Chris H

I definitely understand as my son served in Afghanistan. I refer to it as the "year of no sleep".


I have never been to the White House. Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos. I didn't know you had a child (son? daughter?) that served in the military. God bless him or her for his/her service.

Donna Bradley

Oh Kim,
I do understand how your mother's heart feels just thinking about what your son went through and continues to endure. As moms, we will never be the same either. Our soldiers do sacrifice so much for all of us on a daily bases. I hope and pray we never take that for granted, but somehow continue to let our soldiers know how much we truly appreciate and love them! Please pass on to your son that this mom of a former Marine is so thankful for his service to our country.
Love from Texas,


Amen to that...


I understand. Not because of Alex (he hasn't been overseas yet), but because of all the soldiers I knew when I was married to one.

No, he won't be the same, but he will always be your son.

love you and be safe on your trip.



So glad your son is home with you. I didn't know my husband before he went to war but I know it did forever change him and so many of the men I see when I go to the Vet Center with him. I've seen pictures of the young men in Vietnam and like my husband they looked like boys. Now they are men who move a little slower, have grey hair and are always proud of their service to their country.

I hope your son is adjusting well. Bless him and your family.

I have been to Washington. I could have spent all day walking around Arlington. I loved seeing the Lincoln Memorial. We saw the WH from a distance while on a tour bus :)


God bless!


Big hug to you. And my heartfelt thank you to your dear son

XO Kris


So True Kim, God Bless!!

Judy L.

May God bless your son.

Donna T.

Amen!...from an Army brat and wife of a retired Army pilot...many thanks to your son and to all who serve...


So very well said Kim.... My heart is forever grateful to each and every soldier who chooses to serve this great nation...God's blessings on each and every one... So glad that your son is back home ..... Terri


God Bless you Kim...and your son. Thanks so much to both of you!!

G from Ga

Blessings to you and Sean and to all of our service men and women.

Beth K.

This makes me cry. War makes me sad. We appreciate your son and pray peace and healing for him and all of us living in this war torn world. Bless you for sharing.


Amen. My heart prays for you all.


I do understand. Glad your son is home with his family who loves him.

Bobbie Lynn Duran

God bless your Son. Thank him for me for serving. I pray for him and all who have served for healing and strength. Thank you Kim for sharing. Blessings to you and and the rest of your family.

Kimberly~Nutbrown Cottage

Thank him for me, Kim. Thank YOU for your sacrifice of giving your son to our country to help keep our freedoms!


Thank you, Kim, for writing this, for being his mother, for passing word along where we won't forget.

Peggy Williams

God Bless your son for his service. He and all who serve are in my prayers. So grateful!

Dena Palmer

This post is just what I needed today. God Bless you and God Bless Shawn. I do understand.
