Today, Jerry and I leave our home and drive to Arizona to say our official good-byes to our son before he is deployed overseas. We are so thankful for the opportunity to get to do this, since we know that it is not always so. How many parents have had to say good-bye via a letter or phone call? Now days, it is so nice to have technology to be able to "keep-in-touch". We are comforted knowing that he is in God's care no matter if he is state side or around the world.
We consider ourselves to be rich in relationships! We always seem to have just enough $$ to get by, but our relationships...well in that we are honored to be so "wealthy".
Time is a gift. One we unwrap everyday. How will we spend this day? Time with our loved ones is one of our highest priorities. May we enjoy our gift of time to it's fullest.
It may be a little while before I can write again...one never knows with the emotions of a mother and how fragile or strong they may be at any given moment. For now, let me just say that I am blessed that YOU are traveling this journey with me. Thank you for your love and support!
