May Our Sons Never Meet

Today I met another Blue Star Mom. She came to our shop, we began to chat. She told me her son was a Navy Seal and now he is a surgeon in Afghanistan. Her eyes quickly took on the glassy-look, I know all too well. She shared with me that she is more scared for her son now, than she ever has been during his missions as a Navy Seal. This mom told me how much her heart hurts, how deeply she fears for her son's safety. We exchanged a hug. She told me, "I hope my son never meets your son."

Oh dear God in Heaven, please never allow our sons to meet.

Your boys couldn't be in better hands (on earth) if they needed him. Both boys(and you) are still in my prayers.
