Missing my kids :*(

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

emoticon I have got to say that I am so proud of both of my kids! I am so lucky to have a wonderful daughter who supports me in everything I do. She lives in Indianapolis and I haven't had the chance to see her for the last year! I miss her so much! And then there's my son, Romy. When I got home today, there was an email from him to say that he loves me more than I will ever know.

You see, my son is aboard the USS Bataan somewhere off the coast of Libya. I worry about him and the strain this is putting on him. It can't be easy. At only 25 years old, he has managed to become the Leading Petty Officer of his division. Quite an accomplishment for a young man. He has a lot of responsibility aboard the ship and rarely gets to call or write us. When I get a loving email from him just to say he loves me and hopes I have a good day, it makes me wonder why I stress so much about my daily chores both at home and at work.

We have always been a close family and being apart from them is really getting me down today. I can only hope that when Romy comes home, we can all have a big happy family reunion.

Please pray for his strength and courage! I know that we will all one day be together again. What a joyous day that will be!
