Military Mom's a late Mother's day poem

Before I was a Soldier's Mom

I never tripped over a rucksack or knew the words to the Air Force song.
I didn't worry whether or not my child could shoot or had "zeroed up".
I never imagined saying, "Good job!" when my child told me he had jumped out of a perfectly good airplane... or when he qualified with a grenade launcher.
I didn't understand "HOOAH".
I cheered for Navy.
I never imagined I could be so gloriously happy over a simple "Hey, Ma."

Before I was a Soldier's Mom

I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.
I never sat up late staring at a computer screen or woke in the middle of the night just to check if the computer and cell phone were working.
I never felt fear so completely.... and I never had so many sisters! (and brothers) nor so many sons and daughters!
I never felt such pride.
