This is beautiful. It is a completely different feeling to be the mom of a Marine then the wife. Both are difficult. Its like your heart has come to a point of quiet surrender to a plan that you can never control. Watching two of the most important men in your life answer a calling that is sure to change them forever and trusting that this change is in God's plan no matter what, is a feeling no words can describe yet, this prayer might come close. Daria Knapp, Marine Corps, wife and mother.
maybe it hurts when you read these things, but i hold it all in until it just springs, i really don't mean to be overbearing, but each day seems a year when to you i cant sing, of the missing and blissing that you bring to me, all the joy and excitement anticipating, i wish i cared less and could just let you be, hate me! i'm crazy, caring is not free.
