Hi Phoenixmom, You asked about Oliver. He is doing wonderful. I would like to share a picture with you, but none of the pictures I have received are shareable. Hi is off all oxygen, eating food and growing like a weed. When I get a picture to share, I will definately share with you..
Hello Phoenixmom, I see that your sailor is being deployed. Just want to let you know I will be praying for you all. Is this his first deployment? Caleb tells me that most ships are running silent right now, so you may not hear anything for a while. My faith got me through the 8 months that Caleb was deployed. Just remember that he is where God wants him right now. He is in God's hands.
Hello! Sorry I have been MIA around all my Navy groups and most social media lately. I've been a little stressed with worrying about my son. not hearing from him was really hard and when we finally got a letter and a call earlier than should have been was extremely hard. he was sent to seps last week and now awaiting a date to come home. Not sure if he will want to try again when he is able or not. He gets to call every day or every other day which is nice to hear his voice and know he is ok. his little family can't wait for him to get home. I gotta say I was bummed but now kind of relieved he is coming home........With that being said I will most likely leave the group once he is home and I know I wasn't here very long but thank you for the invite and the help you all have given me. Prayers for your families and loved ones in the military and for serving our country. May God be with them every step of the way and keep them safe in any journey they are on.
