Happy Birthday to my Sweet Mama!!!!

At the age of 18 I had to say goodbye to my sweet precious mama...she was only 63 and well that is way to young to go and I was way to young to loose her...But God knows best and although we may never know why...HE DOES!!!

My Mama was my world...she was my best friend...I NEVER left her side!!! I NEVER spent the night away from her!!! I was with her up until the last breathe she took!!! I can never say how my heart feels because I miss her soooo much!!!

Happy Birthday Mama!!

I miss you each and every day...I know you and Daddy are watching over my Marine and will make sure he is brought back home to us safe!!!

I Love you Mama!!!

Keep Praying....IT WORKS!!!

Wonderful Weekend!!

I had a wonderful weekend!!!

I had got a phone call from Justin on Wednesday and then woke up Saturday to a chirp on my phone that he was online...we chatted for an hour and then again later for about 2 hours and then he called!! My heart was so happy!!!

All I want is to be able to hear from him...but after all my questions he may not call or get back online for a while!! HA! I asked him every question you could imagine, and he answered them to the best that he could!


Then we went to a birthday party for Alexis at church and had a wonderful time!! I can't believe that she is 6...where does time go????

Her memaw made a smurf cake and did a really good job too!!!

And here are two girls that are the best of friends and wanted me to take some pictures of them!!

Brittany on left and my Britani on right!

My Britani was really sick thursday and friday...Thank God she is better!!!

Yellow Ribbon on the Old Oak Tree until My Marine comes back home!!!

I am so blessed and I know that! I love being able to share with you some of my small blessings in life...God is so good!!!

I got a twitch but still had fun!

Well to go ahead and get the complaining out of the way...I have a twitch in my left eye and it is driving me crazy!! I have had it for 4 days now and well from what I can tell it is from stress and tiredness!!!! Imagine that...I have both of those and do not see any break from either!!! I wish it would just stop!!!

OK so now on to the fun part...I WENT TO SIX FLAGS OVER GEORGIA!!

I hate that place...I DO NOT ride any of the rides!! The USMC keeps me on a roller coaster in life and I do not like it, and I really do not like any of the real roller coasters!! I am terrified of them!! I rode a couple of rides with Alex and Aver but for the most part...I SAT AND WATCHED!!

This is the group that went and as you can see it was a large group!! Had a lot of fun with them and glad I went except it was SO HOT!! I know that the kids enjoyed themselves and maybe next year I will just stay home and have dinner ready for them when they get back!! HA!!

Still no word from Justin! I know that he is busy and I have to keep in mind that "NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS!!" Sometimes that is easier said than done!! But I am trying...and well I am not doing such a good job at it!!! I have a package I am sending out today...sure hope he is getting all his goodies that we are sending him!!

Keep Praying...IT WORKS!!

Not much more

I know that Justin is busy and doing his job and I know that when he gets a chance he WILL call!!! I know all of this and I know....I KNOW!!!!

I am so close to my children and well it has been 17 days since I have heard from Justin and just to be honest it is killing me!! I am staying busy at work and trying my best not to eat through my stress and I try to think positive and be understanding about the situation that he is in!!

But each of you put your child on the battle field and don't hear from them for 17 days and tell me how you feel!!! I hear all the time he is ok and not to worry. Well its not that i think anything is wrong...I JUST WANT TO HEAR FROM HIM!! He is out in the heat and wearing full gear and walking everywhere he goes! I am so glad that I NEVER have to do this againg once this is over...He will be done!!! I see where others get phone calls and still I get nothing...My heart is HEAVY!!


This was taken Mother's Day and I was one happy mama to have all 3 of my children with me!!!

Please continue to pray for the troops!!

I just had to get this out and not everyone wants to hear me moan and grown about not getting a phone call!! Just pray that I get one soon!!!

Just stopping in for a bit!!

I jsut wanted to stop by for a bit!!! Special prayers needed!!

One of the group in Justins unit ran over an IED the other day and thank God they are all ok...those things are so dangerous and I hate them!! They seem to me to be a cowardly way to hurt our guys...they don't want to face them face to face so they bury these things and when our guys ran over it...well it blew up the truck!!!

I can not imagine that phone ringing even to tell me that he is fine but...

I am thinking that Justin is VERY busy doing his job...have not heard from him in 16 days and well I just am not use to that!! We talk all the time and this is very hard for me...but I am coping with the situation and thankful for my family and friends that keep me calm!!! I have my moments just like most Military Moms do that has a child in the sand box!!!

Sent out more packages this week already and actually got the stuff to fix up another one!!!!
