Our oldest son has once again left for his depl*yment. He serves our country with great skill and we are extremely proud of him. Yet, his job puts him in great peril. With the house having just been destroyed by fire we are already under extreme stress. His depl*yment only compounds it all. This mama would like to have all my married and grown kids move into our hotel with us and not allow anyone to leave without us going as a group. Realistic? No! But just sharing what I am feeling.
Today we heard some helicopters went down in the Middle E*st. Our son Tyler's mode of transportation while depl*yed is helicopter.
I then texted my cousin's wife Jamie. Her husband (my cousin) is a helicopter pilot and currently depl*yed as well. She texted me back and said she was sitting with the spouse of a fallen soilder.
If we should cross your mind, please pray for our Ty's safety, as well as the safety of rest of the military and their families. Several of you bloggy friends are military wives and military moms and we pray for you and we always thank you for your sacrifices!!
