The Phone did Ring!!

Well I had heard that Justin would be calling and I was on pins and needles all day!! Every time the phone rang I just knew it would be him!!! And so I went on with my day and just thought that he was not gonna get to the phone this time!! And then about 12:02a.m....

this sweet face was on the phone saying "Hey Mom!!!"
Oh what a sweet sound!!
Everything is good and he is getting packages and letters and he is loving it!! The other guys told him that no-one else can get mail when its mail drop time cause he takes up the whole thing!! I love it!! He informed me that even though he was getting so many snack packs...He had lost weight and that I was really gonna have to do some cooking so that he can get it back!! He gave me a list of things that he needs and so off to the store I shall go!! The one thing that he did say that he got in the mail that made him laugh was an invitation that Ganky had sent him!! Not so sure what it was but it made him laugh and then the thing that he has gotten that has made him miss home so bad was letters from Alex and Avery that Tracy had put in her box!!! He loves those babies and can't wait to see them!! But through that phone I was able to see that he had a smile on his face!!

I can't wait to get my hands on him!! But thank you all for your prayers!! He said....Mom those prayers are working...There have been so many times that I should have been hurt or not here anymore but due to everyone praying...I am fine!! Thank God!!

You all have a wonderful day!!

~Till Tomorrow~


  1. I am so happy he called you! That last part tore me up! So scary. He is in good hands, though. You know that. I am so glad he is getting his packages. Time for me to send more! I will get the girls to pick some more pictures to put in there. Maybe Alex can draw her and Justin. That would be neat. I love her pictures! See you soon. I know you are a happy gor today! Love you!

  2. Oh Cindy Lou. Thrilled for you. It comforts me to hear him comfort you. Yes, God is always watching out for them in all things. we will keep on praying that there are protective angels shielding them over and over , never tiring to hover over them and intervene!!! Still hoping and waiting for my call. my cell phone is on my body at all times, and every time the phone rings I run out to view caller id you remember how long you waited for that first call to come out of Afghanny? sigh....Hugs and have a great day.

  3. My heart is happy this morning! I woke up thinking about him calling and we KNEW when the phone passed his way... he would be calling his Mama! I will be heading out to pack boxes full today:) I can't wait until he gets back on American soil. I love it that he is getting his packages and it sounds like he is enjoying whatever we send! The invitation was to his welcome home party, it said wherever he wanted it to be, whatever he wanted to eat and I just made it funny:) Love you and thanks for making my morning. I am skipping and whistling out to buy my sweet Marine nephew a bunch of goodies. I can't wait to hear how he enjoys the pizza party!

    Have a blessed day my sweet Sister!

  4. I'm so glad you heard from your Marine. Prayers are bubbles of safety and love around them. The stories that I heard... It gives me even more reason to pray.

    Have a great day!
