Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful. Buddha
Today I will share something very personal.
My son is in the Marines and he returned from Iraq about 8 months ago. While he was on leave he left his class A uniform at our home. The class A for the Marines is the dark blue blazer with gold buttons. Some other metal badges he's earned and dress slacks. Although I told him he should take his uniform with him he said he wouldn't be needing it.
Well as moms know best - he called me and told me he needed his uniform can I mail it to the base in California. Of coarse I will.
On the way to the post office the top lid opened and the sun shined on the buttons and the glare caught my eyes. I looked down and almost fell to my knees. I have never been so grateful in all of my life. . . . I was mailing my son his uniform in a box instead of receiving it in a box. I was overwhelmed with emotion and just had to stop and thank God for protecting my son while he was at war. To bad I didn't have my camera with me so instead I give you this.
