Missing my baby boy

I am really missing Dustin. I know part of it is because Thanksgiving is in a few days. This will be the second one he has missed with his family. I know right now he is in some very extensive training, so we probably won't here from him for a month. The other thing is that with each day that goes by, the time is getting closer for his deployment. How am I ever going to find the strength too say
goodbye? I use to think I was a pretty tough cookie, but now I am not so sure.

War stinks. But the fact is, it exist and there are brave men and women who are willing to go and fight, possibly die for freedom. I realize that somewhere there are thousands of moms and dads who know their son or daughter will never come home again. I pray we will never be one of them.

The only peace I have about all this is the fact Dustin is doing what God called him too do. The girls and I have a song for Dustin, Chris Daughtry's "Home." I did a slide show with that song on one of my post last December. When we hear it we stop and pray. One day we heard it three times in a row on different stations. We stopped and prayed. He called that night and I told him about it. He said "momma I needed it I am really sick." A mom knows. For the last two days he has been on my heart constantly. I went to call my husband a few times and realized I was dialing Dustin's number. I am hoping everything is ok with him.

Please pray for all the men and women fighting for our freedom.

Absolutely. Thank you to you and your boy. As a mom of 3 boys, I can only imagine how sick with worry you are. So much gratitude and prayers galore.
