Semper Gumby

It is with a very heavy heart that I write this post. I don't care what anyone says being a military family is NOT easy ...

As you all know my wonderful daughter in law, Ashley, is an Army Reservist. Her unit in VA is mobilizing in September.

I love her as much as I love my own kids. Who would have ever thought that we could have this mother in law/daughter in law relationship that we have. We have such a wonderful relationship that she even calls me momma ... she is my other daughter and this is breaking my heart that she is having to go play in the sand pit. I know this is part of her duty but that doesn't mean that I have to like it, now do I?

I'm so very thankful that have her here in TN with me until August 1st or 2nd. Yes, Tye will be staying with us until his dad comes home from his deployment, which is sometime in Ocotober. I do support her...I pray that God will protect her and her entire unit. I do not know where they are going but all I do know is that they will "drop in a remote area of the desert, humvee across to their designated location".

One thing that I have learned in being a military mom and that is to be Semper Gumby with the military because they change their minds like I change my panties.

I will keep everyone updated on her statud...

I'm so sorry honey. It's so very difficult for those that are left here. I pray she is safe and will return home soon.

Biggest hug ever. :)

No, the life of a military family is never easy, that's for sure. I'll pray for her safe return, and for your continued peace of mind.

I add mine to Sandee and Donna. The Teamster's son leaves for Afghanistan in September.

I have what use to be a very short prayer list of those I know who are deployed. The list seems to be growing lately. I'm adding Ashley on.
