During the Deployment period I keep my phone glued to me...ALWAYS!!! I never know when it may ring and someone special will be on the other end!!!
When I go to bed, it is right beside me next to my ear so that I make sure that I hear it ring!!
When Sunday night/early Monday morning it went off...Oh the excitement!! I just straight up out of bed and answer!!!
And yes...IT WAS MY MARINE!!! Calling from thousands of miles away and it was clear as a bell and did not have that delay!!! I feel so very blessed!!!! He is so darn sweet and I love him so much but after a few days of not hearing from him I LOVE hearing that voice say "I love you Mom"!!
