This is beautiful. It is a completely different feeling to be the mom of a Marine then the wife. Both are difficult. Its like your heart has come to a point of quiet surrender to a plan that you can never control. Watching two of the most important men in your life answer a calling that is sure to change them forever and trusting that this change is in God's plan no matter what, is a feeling no words can describe yet, this prayer might come close.

MoM journey is hard to describe but one of the greatest things is that I have met some awesome MoM's. With their encouragement I have kept writing and sharing. One very special MoM created this. She took a pic of my son and I with our first hug after bootcamp and added the poem. I hope she truly knows that she has played a huge part in my dreams of sharing my simple words. Thank you Laurie!!
