I get home today and I have a letter from Matt!!!! It's short and sweet but at least it's something.

I tried to get it to upload but Blogger didn't like it... so here is what it said ...

Hey mom,

I know I haven't wrote you yet but I've been real busy. I know this won't be long because I don't have long to write, but I just want to say I love y'all and I'm doing great.


P.S. Send me the bible Momma Ann gave me, and send me Uncle Chris', Justin, Nana and Grandmother's addresses.

I love y'all

The letter was post marked August 3. So this was after his wanting to come home. He should be getting our letters by now.

I know he's busy and doesn't have much time to write but at least it's something.

In my opinion, if he still felt the same as he did last Wednesday he wouldn't have said that he was great... do you?

Proudly Brought to You by Dixie 8:11 PM

The first week is always the toughest at boot camp; I couldn't begin to tell you how many times I wanted to go home during mine!

Sounds like he is doing much better. Yay Matt!

I'm happy for you. Short and sweet. I'm sure any letters from him are a joy. I got to get something to him, but he'll have to wait until my payday.

He's fine, he wouldn't lie to his momma!

No matter what, we're proud.


Blogger Maryfly said ... (8/07/2007 11:00 AM) : 

yup, he's fine - sounds like he got over his homesickness. I'll still send the postcards I got him.

miss you! smooch!

Oh, GOOD!!!! I am so glad to hear this :-)

He is fine.... !!!


Blogger Mags said ... (8/07/2007 11:48 AM) : 

I think the fact that it didn't say, "COME AND GET ME NOW" is a great sign.

He'll pull through...

Dixie, this is encouraging news! I'll get another note out to him today.

It sounds like things are looking up. Cheers!!

As a former Marine myself, I can assure you he is in good hands and the Man that returns will make you thankful for him joining.


Blogger Sarge Charlie said ... (8/07/2007 7:53 PM) : 

It sounds like he has adjusted well Dixie, I know he will be just fine.

but you will still be mama and your job is to worry about stuff.


Blogger Comedy + said ... (8/07/2007 8:07 PM) : 

He's going to be fine. Just take a breath and let all that tension out. I need to send him another letter before we go to the boat this week. Consider that done. Heck I even sent him some stamps... Smoooooooches. :)
