3rd Annual HOME Golf Tournament - Friday, May 11, 2012

Thunder and lightning, very very frightening. Buckets of rain, hail, sleet, wind. This is our weather in Houston the night before the 3rd HOME Golf Tournament benefiting our military. What will we do tomorrow on tournament day?

Friday, May 11th 7:30am. What do my eyes see? Clear blue skies? Just a slight cool breeze? Yes!! From my lips to God's ears. The weather is PERFECT.

As the HOME board convened in Pearland at Country Place Golf Course, my iPhone was going bonkers with text messages of good luck wishes for our day. GAME ON!

28 brave hearts came out and registered for our tournament. OK, so we had a few no shows, but 28 showed and the weather is perfect.

The 3rd Grade Choir from Cline Elementary in Friendswood braved this beautiful weather along with the JROTC from Pearland High. Once the National Anthem concluded and the JROTC retired the colors, the golfers were off to their tees. Did I mention the perfect weather?

Upon hearing the "thwack" of a golf ball I now rested a little easier in knowing the golfers were on their marks. WHEW. Has it really been a full year since the last tournament? Yes it has been a year. One year and thousands of care packages later here we are on the course again to raise funds to keep sending care packages to our amazing military. Every sleepless night, every headache, every negative result from a potential sponsor, every paper cut, every back ache and eye strain from endless hours on the computer trying to make connections to more sponsors, every minute I went over my limit on my cell phone, every over priced gallon of gas driving from store to store for donated items was worth it to hear that "THWACK" of the golf ball. It is worth 25 times that to know our military will reap the benefits of this tournament. More care packages will go out the door and end up somewhere in the world in our militaries hands. Even when the price of a flat rate box keeps increasing, HOME will find the means to ship. Our military doesn't stop and we will not stop.

People actually ask me why we are continuing to ship packages when our military is coming home. Dumfounded, I tell them our military serves all over the world. We ship wherever we have a current address to active military.

At present, I sat back and smiled to myself as I thought how do we top this next year? It will happen I have no doubt. But for now our winning teams are out there playing their hearts out. They are playing for our military. This is the day God has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

So, let me introduce to you our winning teams from this the 3rd Annual HOME Golf Tournament.
