Wake up, say a prayer for my son, check the online news to see what happened in Afghanistan while I was sleeping, read an inpirational Biblical verse, get ready for my day. That’s just the start of the day.
As the day wears on, I say a prayer every chance I get, I look for messages online from my son so I know he is OK, and I try my hardest to be a responsible professional career woman, family member, and friend; as well as lead an active life.
Before I lay down to sleep at night, I read the news, say a prayer, read a biblical verse, and pray myself to sleep. Sometimes I cry, I can’t help it.
The next day, I wake up and do it all again. As time goes on, being the Mom of a son deployed to a war zone has not gotten any easier.
I am a Proud Army Mom. I cry and pray for fallen soldiers and their families. I celebrate for soldiers that come home safe. I feel sad for soldiers that come home injured.
I stay Army Mom Strong, taking it day by day, supporting my son 100% while he serves in a war zone.
