The Long Awaited Phone Call

29 days later and a 47 minute phone call with a long delay, but it’s worth getting to hear his voice. 29 days is a long time for me to not hear his voice, but I certainly understand. He said that he figured that he had better call me because he figured that I was keeping up with it. LOL...Image hosted by Photobucket.com I was not really keeping up with it in that sense. It’s not hard to forget if you know what I mean. People are always asking, “when is the last time that you heard from him”.

The instant messages are just not the same as hearing his voice. Now, all I ask for is to just be able to see him in person. Hopefully that will be in August, but still keeping my fingers crossed. I all I can do is hope that August will hurry up and get here. I haven’t started counting the days yet. Don’t know if that is a good idea or not. I sure would hate to get my hopes all up, and then be told that he was not going to get to leave on a certain date. So for now, we will just say August, and leave it at that.

Can't you tell, I am all smiles now.

I checked out the pic of your son. WOW, he is so young. To think he is a Man. He has a beautiful face. I do pray you get August. I can't imagine what your going through with him deployed. I do have several friends deployed and thats bad enough. A child, sometimes I am thankful my 20 yr old has a heart problem and can't go. Yet I know if he did I would stand behind him in that decission. I do have a 14 yr old who says he is going to join as soon as he is out of school. Though I do worry, my child ,as sweet as he is, said I have no say in it. Whew, conviction in such a young one. I am proud of his decission and will not show him how scared I am. I couldn't put that on him. As a Mother I would protect my sons with my life. He told me that very thing. (as I am typing this tears are showing) He will join the Army and become a Soldier to protect ME. He will die taking care of me. What a wonderful son I have.
