Why He Ties His Boots....

I was sitting here typing a post... sharing some random thoughts on what it's like to be the mom of two warriors.



................then my cell phone rang.




My youngest son called to let me know he may be deploying in September for six months to Afghanistan. He told me 'it's why he ties his boots.'



The post I was writing, has obviously evaporated. Perhaps, those thoughts will reappear on a new day.


Prayers are lifted....Thy will be done.

Seems like you get one home & one goes doesn't it. My Aussie soldier boy deployed only this morning until late Oct/early Nov.
God bless them all.

Thank you ! I covet your prayers. Our son and his wife were married last July, and said they have been trying to get pregnant for seven months, and God answered their prayers! My son's dear wife will go through her first prenancy on their first deployment. brave gal. And we want to help any way we can. They are so cute together. so in love.
