It seemed like today that Sarah (Tyler's girlfriend) is also growing concerned. The days seem quite long as we wait in between calls.
Yesterday during church I realized that I was probably doing stuff that only Military families do. My cell phone's vibrate mode is broken. So while Dw is preaching I have the phone on silent but sitting on that seat so it is in my peripheral vision. If it lights up I see it immediately. If I am looking the other way for a second, I quick look back to the phone....did it light up? I click to have it light up. I click it again to check it again.
During worship I thought, what will I do? So I turned the volume to full blast and tucked my cell phone into my shoulder strap. I was wearing a jacket so no one could see it - although I might have looked like I had a shoulder-pad-gone-bad on. I kept it up high all during the worship just in case it rang I could hear it almost next to my ear. When people were leaving and I was greeting at the door, again, it was in my shoulder strap.
The picture on the left is my favorite picture of Tyler. I can hear him laughing when I look at it. Abigail took the pictures when she was home with all the kids in March, just before TyTy deployed.
Probably most can't understand, but while we wait for that precious phone call from our handsome oldest son, we will do anything to be certain that we don't miss his call. How proud we are of you dear Tyler. You are OUR HERO!! We LOVE you and can't wait for you to come HOME!
