August Happiness Challenge - Day 20

The "August Happiness Challenge" is hosted by Sam over at One Gal's Musings.  Run on over to her place to learn all about it!

This post is a mixture of happy and not so happy on the mama level.  Our Marine left today for his first assignment on-board a ship. We do not know when we will hear from him again. We do not know if there will be Internet access on the ship or not.  I will be happy to hear from him whenever he is able to contact us. I am happy that he is having so many adventures and making many memories that wouldn't be possible had he stayed here in this town.  I am happy for him because I love him and being a Marine makes him happy.  I want all of our children to be happy and get where they want to go in life.

  1. You are a good mama. Mamas let go and let them be adults. But it's not easy. Thanks to him for his service.

    1. Thank you, Nonnie. That is very sweet of you to say. I know I haven't been a perfect mama, but hopefully they all realize how much I love them.

      When I get to talk/message with Davey again, I will tell him that you thank him for his service.

      Have a blessed day. :)

  2. It is hard to know what to feel here. Sad for him being away, scared because of the danger, happy because it is his dream, proud because only a Select Few make it this far.

    1. Agreed on all counts.
      Naturally, I think he is ahead of the pack. :)

  3. I will be praying for his safety. I can understand your being worried about him though.

    1. Thank you, Ellen. We appreciate the prayers for him very much. They do make a difference.
      Have a blessed weekend!
