The couple on the left from Minnesota came to the store. They had been to the Rug Cottage and Barntiques about a year ago and wanted to come back for more of our great antiques. We got reacquainted with our conversation from a year ago. In that conversation we discussed that their son is serving our country in Afghanistan.
A few minutes later that lady in the white came in and I knew that she had a son that had also served in the military . I thought it might be encouraging to introduce them to each other since they both had children in the military.
This is where it became a "God Thing". In their conversation they started putting the pieces together that their sons were in the same battle in Afghanistan back in October where tragically 8 of our precious US soldiers were killed. Their sons were communicating to each other, one in the air and one on the ground. There wasn't a dry eye in the store. They exchanged names and emails. Both couples are strong Christians and know that God has been instrumental in their son's lives including this meeting of the parents.
I have purposely not given names of both of these wonderful families and their sons for security reasons.
Say a prayer for our Brave Men and Women in the military tonight serving our Country.
