So last week our family celebrated a BIG DAY.
Our son, who’s our oldest made the leap of faith to follow his dream of becoming a United States Marine. A week ago Monday we watched him swear in and said our final farewells until April and then we waited…..
and waited for what felt like a million years.
I was so nervous, my husband and I practiced calling to ensure I could answer the phone fast enough and get it on speaker so we could both hear our son.
At 11:10 pm Monday night, I answered my phone and we listened to our son SCREAM the following into the phone before hanging up.
It took him exactly 20 seconds before he hung up.
To say it was the most beautiful phone call EVER would be an understatement. I have replayed his voice over and over every day since this phone call.
We won’t get another one – the only means of communication until graduation are letters that we write every day.
In 13 weeks -our son is going to be a Marine!
