Oh my, CindyLou are you out there?????? Do you remember how worked up we were all getting right before the boys graduated from Boot Camp, huh, well, DO YA??? I'm whipping myself up into a frenzy, yes, I am a big ole' HOT MESS ~ JUST LIKE BOOT CAMP DAYS!!!!
I am cranky, I am excited, I am happy, I am anxious, I AM NUTS!!!!! Don't mess with me, because I may look harmless BUT I RAISED A MARINE & I DO BITE :) ~ LOL!
I ordered this sign from Buildasign.com for the front of the house ~ OOHRAH!!! I can't wait to hang it!!!
I ran out for a bit of retail therapy last night & I got the best news while I was out, Cindy had heard from Justin & he was GOOD & I could hear the laughter in her text :) I always get a little anxious when it's been a few or more days that she has gone without word from that sweet fella and well, knowing that she got her call & let me know that he was safe was just too much for this Crazy Marine Mom to take...I broke down outside of Kohl's, HAPPY TEARS but tears just the same. Man oh man did I get some crazy looks, LOL!!!! I was jsut wandering through the store and I couldn't stop, the tears were just flowing! I was in the kitchen section and this little old man was just standing there waiting for his wife, he noticed I was crying and I was wearing my MY SON IS A US MARINE tee, he asked if anything was wrong ~ I told him no but thanks for asking and then I thought what the heck...Sir, my son has been away from home for almost 18 months and my dear friends son is away fighting for our country and well sir, my son will be home very soon and my sweet friend just let me know that she just heard from her son. He is good & life is good sir, I just miss my boy but I am a PROUD MARINE MOM & they are doing thier job"...
"well ma'am, I want to thank you and please tell your friend that I said thank you too", he rolled up his shirt sleeve to show me his VERY VERY old faded USMC tattoo. Ladies he was a Marine, yup I CRIED AGAIN....he gave me a hug and a salute & I gave him a big hug and a peck on the cheek!!! I think he was an angel sent there just for me :)
Pass the BOUNTY PLEASE, I'm crying again!!!!!
Until tomorrow, Be SAfe & God Bless ~ PLEASE KEEP ON PRAYING IT REALLY WORKS!!!
A memory to last 'til next time...
