Hi --- I sent an e-mail to you, and just received a failed delivery notice because the service for Navy for Moms was busy. I felt it was too late to call you; however, if you're still up, give me a call if you like. Tomorrow, I'll be leaving for bible study at 8:45, and Richard and I have some business to take care of which will put us back home around 4:00. The car is arranged for, and I'm still aiming for a noon departure if till okay with you. We'll catch up with each other. I'm really getting excited about our trip.
Nice to hear from you! I was just thinking of your son today; I hope he is doing well on his deployment. My son will be able to come home soon for a short leave, then he will be going on his first deployment as well.
I will give you a call one day, when I think of it before midnight!
My sailor is on his first cruise and is an undes right now. It's supposed to be a short one, but, gosh, the worry has started up all over again. Falling overboard, getting injured. He is the only grandchild. My husband and I raised him, and he is almost 21.
Thanks for the info! Glad to hear your son is doing well.She is an undes. and only 19. Just a little on edge about first deployment! But I guess all first time moms are! I will just continue to pray for her and her fellow shipmates!
Hi Donna, for some reason I cant respond on the private section of N4M but if you like to email me its firstname.lastname@example.org I usually check my email on a daily basis.My stepsons Dad is a diehard Dallas Cowboy Fan and Yes Im a Redskin Fan LOL.I was just thinking deployment is going to be as bad as BootCamp not hearing much from them but worst because they can sometimes go out for 6 or 7 months.Im guessing this is his first deployment.Are you close to where that Sailor Sean lives in Pittsburg TX.Im so heartbroken over this loss. Love to keep in touch,Maria
