Meatloaf Got It All Wrong...

Meatloaf sings a song titled, "Two Out of Three, Ain't Bad"...

As I was driving to work on Saturday morning, this song became stuck in my head. I was thinking back to earlier this year, when three blogging moms were supporting each other, as our Airmen were getting ready to deploy. Hallie's son, CJ was leaving for Afghanistan, Michelle's daughter, Shay was on her way to Iraq and my son B deploying to Afghanistan...all three were leaving within a several week span of each other. Three proud moms. Of course there was concern, it's not easy to have your child in the military. We prayed for our children, we prayed for each other. Shay and B are wrapping up their deployments and heading home soon. CJ came home within a couple weeks, because of an injury. CJ committed suicide last month.

Yep, Meatloaf got it all wrong...

Reading about Hallie again gives me such a heavy heart. I know what I feel pales in comparison to her pain. I can't wrap my head much less my heart around what happened and how difficult it must be for her. I also can only imagine how difficult it is for those with kids deployed. So I'll continue to send prayers and (((hugs))) and be thankful for all blessings big and small and the safe return of all of our loved ones.
