Sandy thank you so much, I do also thank God for Dianne. She is a wonderful woman and I think she has a calling to help all of us crazy question filled moms, wives, and girlfriends...they should put her on the payroll...

Thank you also, many have said oh I am sure you are going crazy now. Ha they really have no clue!! I am so very proud for each one of the New sailors, but am so sad that my own child is struggling.
She rolled her ankle on a 4 mile run about week 3 I think. also LLD so much she stopped going to medical in anticipation of this run.

I thank God for ladies like yourself, so strong in your love for God and not afraid to show this. Awesome.

So you keep doing this and God will Bless you as you pray and do his work, I am trying my best to find a way to get my behind back into my own church (my father is an Elder so I hear it all the time) but my job is in the way, I work 10 hour mids Fri-Sat-Sun. So driving home is an issue some mornings...

God Bless you and your family they have a wonderful loving woman and I hope they all can see that.

Hi Sandy, yes we need to keep in touch as we have been through a lot together. Our boys may still see each other as both doing school there. Matt is accepting of corpsman job and wants to go with the Marines. Scares me but I will leave it in God's hands. Hope Matt can get to his locker to get his phone and laptop today, will be great to be able to talk with him more often.

Oh Sandy, I am so happy that you made it to PIR!!! Yes we had a great time with Ben! And was it ever worth all the worry and anxiety of these last eight weeks to see the man that he has become! Now where will your son be going? Sorry if you already told me, if so, I have forgotten. My son should leave for Pensacola on the 10th to get started on A-school. Thank YOU for all your support!

I see you have adjusted very well to being a part of the Navy family. I want to send you a belated thank you for the friend request. I have not resolve some minor difficulty with my N4M "addressbook" When I select multiple recipients, the friends who receive my message are not always the names I had selected. Typically, private messages are use for communicating issues that are more personal in nature, so for now I am adding friends only when someone is in need. You find me on a daily basis in the Safe Harbor & New Moms Stop Here group . Please join if you haven’t and we can talk there. Aneshao is from CA (2 hours from me). I see you have the same PIR date.
Regards, BunkerBee

Sandy, thanks for letting me know it is Monday, not Sunday. I don't know why I thought it was Sunday...which would be an odd day to do it anyway. I'll keep praying! Have a wonderful weekend!

Sandy, just a note of encouragement for Brenden. A mom contacted me yesterday since her son failed his run. His BStations is on Sunday. He was to get one more try today...he had to improve 30 seconds. Well, he DID it! He will be participating now in BStations on Sunday. I just know that Brenden will too. Doesn't he do the test on Sunday? I'm praying!

Hi Sandy! Thanks for the link! Several others replied also . . . I had to add Mozilla Firefox to be able to view the website. I'm good now! Whew! :)

Sorry, Sandy, I misspelled your son's name...it should have said "Brenden"

Hi Lora, Thank you so much for writing. Where do you sign up? I am trying to find out more information but seem to not know where to go for this information. Yes, I will be there and would love to connect with you. I thought we would get another phone call this weekend, but not so. It is almost to "countdown" for them. Thank God. What a journey. Please let me know where to sign up and also where to find the boxes loved ones can send with the graduation things in them, my mom wants to get one for Garrett.
Thank you for your help and have a wonderful day,
Dianne
