Missing my boy!

I missed a call from my son today. I was in a meeting and couldn't answer my phone. My heart always sinks when I miss his calls, he is in the military currently serving overseas in the war. I thank God we live in an era that we can keep in contact, I don't know if I could have handled not knowing anything, or not hearing from him, like other parents had to endure in past wars.

He was just checking in to tell us he was doing good, as good as can be expected in the midst of what is going on! I thank all those who serve in our military and pray that they all stay safe.

I never would have thought my boy, who rode a two wheel bike when he was 2 and dirtbikes at age 5, would be serving in a war. I am very proud, but always worry, as any family member would do!

So charish every moment with your children and loved ones, hug them and tell them you love them. While we may be sharing today, tomorrow is not promised. Live everyday to the fullest! :)
