I TO HAVE A SON IN IRAG HE HAS ONLY BEEN GONE 5 DAYS, I CAN SHARE THE PAIN AND HOURLY THOUGHTS THE FACT THAT IT NEVER LEAVES YOUR MIND OR ALWAYS LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW OR FIGURING WHAT TIME IT IS THERE AND WHAT MIGHT BE HAPPENING. IT MAKES IT VERY HARD TO WORK OR ENJOY LIFE EVEN SLEEP

Ahhh Soldier's Mom. You voice so eloquently our thoughts. Thank you, not so much for me, but for the other mother's whose soldiers are serving in harms way as we write our thoughts here. They are all our soldiers.

I'm pushed to post here by your saying you might actually refuse to answer the door should you see those class A's standing on your doorstep. Perhaps your husband didn't understand at first, but I do. I refused to answer the door myself for three different door bell ringings one afternoon. I saw shiny shoes (not the rest of the uniform) from my peeking place at a window, somehow in my mind I refused to recognize those and decided instead it was some young man from some church trying to convert me.

It has been over a year since I finally answered the door and I am no longer catatonic and only on rare occasions dysfunctional (who said I was "normal" to begin with? :D) I laugh, I love, I have fun, I live my life as fully as I can. My son's favorite quote was "always look at the bright side of life" re Monty Python...I try hard to make that the lesson of my days.

We, families, we too serve, and some of us are lucky to have our own "platoons" to train with, to be supported by. I have a very special bunch of 19 other Mom's with soldiers in various services who support me every day, as I support them. I hope that you do as well.

hugs from one Mom to another

Wow. This was beautiful and heartbreaking and inspiring and... wow.

Thanks, CaliMom. I didn't think I could worry about my kids any more than I already did... but when my son got on that plane, it all ratcheted up a notch -- and he hasn't left Kuwait yet! When people ask me how I'm going to deal with his being there, I joke that I'm going to order up a mainline IV of valium! My admiration for all the mothers who have children there is immense -- and it's over the moon for those moms and dads that are sending their son or daughter back a second time! Please stay in touch...



Wow ... You very eloquently expressed my thoughts ...

2005-01-27T21:19:00.000-08:00

Wow ... You very eloquently expressed my thoughts and feelings for the past eleven months. At times of weakness you allow the "What If" thoughts to creep into your mind. You then dismiss them with a "that would never happen to my son". I feel that if I allow those thoughts they just may come true.

I discuss my feelings only with my sister. Many people know my son is deployed to Iraq and when they ask How is he doing? When is he coming home? You say out of reflex "Good" and "Sometime in March hopefully". It is painful to answer the questions, as they can not begin to understand the depth of your constant worry.

I am constantly watching the news and reading online news sources, trying to glean information, trying to comprehend what it must be like for him. When my son calls he wants to talk about anything but Iraq and what he does there, so I don't push for information, rather I seek it elsewhere.

I found your blog as I was reading a comment you posted on another website. We both mentioned the lack of FRG support for "Moms". Thanks for doing this. I look forward to experiencing your son's journey through deployment in Iraq. We are kindred souls though we have never met.

God bless and comfort the families of all soldiers.

I second Sean's welcome.

It just breaks a person's heart to have to think of those poor familes.

Isn't the computer a wonderful means of communication! Nothing like hearing the voice, but still pretty darn wonderful.
(comment for your previous post)

I have to say, you are a very efficient, get the job done, kind of mom, lots of credit to you on getting that phone card and the lubricant! Big Whoo hooos!

Take care



Great looking blog, welcome to the blogsphere!
