I am traveling down to Louisiana to work for the winter, When I told my son that I was doing that he informed me that on his way to his duty station he was going to reroute his trip so he could come home for a day to see me so I told him that i would not be here. I was very sad. So for weeks I have been kinda depressed thinking that my one and only son was going to come home and I wouldn't even get to see him. Then he called me today and told me that he did some checking and discovered that where I am going to be at in Louisiana is only a 3 hour drive to where he is at in Pensacola Florida. My mouth just dropped open and I got so excited. I told him that no matter what on my first day off I was going to rent a car and drive over to the base. I'm not going to tell him when I will be there, I'm going to show up at the gate and have them get him to meet me there. That is going to be my Merry Christmas even if it will be January. I am just so happy that I am going to get to see my son, even if its for a couple of hours. I miss him so much.
Just had to share my belated Christmas story.
I will blog again after the visit and let you all know it went.
