And they are all back!!!

I got a good long chat with Justin on the face book last were down cause it was River City ( A Marine was killed) 2/6 took his place and they lost one yesterday!! So the whole place shuts down!! But once it was back up he got on and we chatted for a good long time!!
During our conversation I asked if he had seen Nick, they have been together since boot camp and are the BEST of friends!! Well low and behold he said "YES"!!! Oh praise god...ALL of 1/6 is back!! He said,"Mom he found me at 12:30 in the morning...woke me up and all we could do was hug each glad that each made it out of the Marjah place safe!!!" Nick is in Alpha and Justin is in Bravo...So they didn't see each other the entire time they were in Marjah so they were so relieved to see other!!

Oh and then about 11 o'clock last night my phone showed up that Nick was on face book chat..He said "Hey Momma!!!" Oh I was so happy!!! And well then Britani took off and got on the other computer and they chatted for a while!! She was just so happy!!

We are really good friends with his parents so I quickly called and told his mama that he was on and so she was able to chat with him herself!!! I am so happy!! Now if I can just all those boys of mine home!! When you have one Marine you end up with lots of Marines!! We are as one BIG happy family!!!

SO that is about it for today and gonna work on stuff for my trip. Oh what trip are you asking...I leave next week to go to Jacksonville, North Carolina. Why am I going there?


Keep Praying....IT WORKS!!!

  3. Oh Boy!!! I can't wait until he is home & you can hug him & kiss him & squeeze the stuffing out of him & then fatten him up with your good home cooking!!!! So happy for you, go get your things together so you can GO GO GO!!!! Love Ya!!!
