Back in the USA!!

OMG!  OMG!  OMG!  Guess who I just got off the phone with?  Yes, Soldier Son is back on US soil.

This morning, I was greeted with an e-mail saying he was in Germany.  A couple hours later, I hear his voice on the phone saying he’s landed in North Carolina.  I knew he was coming home soon.  That still did not prepare me to actually hear his voice this afternoon.  I must have screamed a little.  I heard him explaining to someone that “That’s my mom.  Yeah, she’s a little loud.”  Haha.

He’s not sure exactly when he’ll get back home, but it should be within 4 to 5 days.  He should definitely be here for Thanksgiving.

We have a lot to give thanks for.

1984 Revisited

Twenty-four years ago today I gave birth to my first baby.  I didn’t really know or care if it was going to be a boy or girl, but secretly I was kind of hoping for a boy.  I used to see little boys with their mommies and always thought how cute it was the way they interracted with each other.  There is something special about a mother-son bond.  I now know that for a fact.  I also used to say I wanted an eight-pounder with lots of hair.  All my wishes came true that day.

Even though he’s not home today, I’m thinking of Soldier Son, my first-born of three awesome sons.  Happy Birthday, baby.  Can’t wait until you’re safe at home.
