Chrissy called me twice this morning and I missed both calls. There was not a good signal where I was at, but I also had it turned off during church. Another Mom said she was going to keep her phone on during church, I think I will do that next Sunday! I keep listening to the messages over and over again! I miss her so much. She told me to"Chill out" and she was fine. She has a small surface fracture, but is not in any pain. She went to chapel this morning with a friend from a "brother… Continue

Today is June 24th, the Wednesday of the 4th week of Boot Camp, so Chrissy is half-way to her PIR on July 24th! Yeah! I have gotten three letters and one phone call, and hope to get another phone call soon. It has been awesome to hear all the news from other Div. 258 Moms. I know that Chrissy is friends with at least one of the other women. That woman's Mom, LaVonda said that Chrissy sprained her ankle. Please pray for her that she will heal quickly and it will not delay her PIR. And I hope… Continue

I live very near an Air Force base, right under certain flight paths. Today the breaking News flashed on the TV ... an F-16 went down last night on a training mission over Utah's West Desert. I do not know this man, not even his name yet, but I do know he was one of our heroes, and he has given his life. I am very weepy over this stranger, and my thoughts and my heart are full of grief for his family. Grief, and heartfelt thanks.
This is what the military can be, sacrifice. No one… Continue

Had a great Father's Day! Yvonne was up at 5:45 a.m. making cheesecake and homemade bread dinner today to be celebrated with Sarah (daughter) and Brian (son-in-law), Trevor (USS Gunston Hall), Branden (NAS Oceana) and Savannah (Navy Wife), and Erene (civilian). Sarah and Brian got me a tripod for my camera (that's why I'm in this group photo). We watched "Time Changers" while Yvonne finished fixing dinner. A good Christian movie! Interested in time travel?… Continue

Had a great evening with Savannah (Navy Wife), Brandon (NAS Oceana), Erene, and Trever (USS Gunston Hall). We ate hamburgers, chips, and cream cheese brownies and ice cream. We played RISK (haven't played that in a long time)! Then we closed with sharing prayer requests and taking turns praying for them. We all had FUN! Check out the new pictures on our profile page slide show.

Great Sunday! Enjoyed Sunday School and the Morning Worship service. Pastor Vicker's sermon was was good, not an easy one to hear, but good. God doesn't always say yes when we pray. Sometimes He says no. I do love our altar services where we can pray and minister to each other after the service!
After church it was on to our house for dinner and fellowship. Trever (USS Gunston Hall) got called back in to work, but Savannah and Brandon (NAS Oceana)… Continue

Saturday evening we eat hot dogs and drank root beer floats, then we played Attack Uno! with Savanah and Brandon (NAS Oceana) and Trever (USS Gunston Hall)! Savanah won the game! Then we went into the living room and just talked and visited. Then we shared prayer requests and prayed together. We were really surprised too! We got a telephone call from a former sailor, Sean, who we had not heard from in two years. That was a real treat! We are now friends on… Continue

We seem to have many family and friends that want to go to my son's boot camp graduation in September. It looks like it may end up being Labor Day Weekend. Has anyone ever rented a house near the base? Thank you.

Moms, dads, brothers, sisters, friends, and DEPers all arrived for dinner with MCPON West. I am so sorry that my friend that was going to carpool with me did not get to go. When I told her I couldn’t afford the trip, she made other plans. Sure hope she doesn’t get upset with me when she finds out how extraordinary the dinner turned out to be. I am so happy my Sailor son told me I should go. He even offered monetary assistance because I am currently laid off. I did want to attend but just… Continue

Hurricane season is here, who is ready? I don't mean to frighten people, but if you had to evacuate your home, could you get by on what you could grab in a few minutes? The sailors have it easy, they report to work or to their ship, but the families and dependents need to be prepared. This information also applies to areas which have typhoons and floods, and areas which may have events which cannot be predicted such as earthquakes or tornadoes. Even a gas line break could have you out of your… Continue
