What a great birthday gift from my son

We had a great homecoming in January when he came home after deployment. The days since are all a 'count down' to when we see him again! For my 61st birthday this year my son sent 2 dozen roses. They were beautiful to say the least but the card....something I will forever treasure. Mother's Day was the day before my birthday and my son said he had a surprise for me. I thought it was another call when I would not normally expect it. He called and said mom...just think you have won a vacation and…See More

"Yes Helen...it was a special homecoming but so short! He went home today,1/16 and seems like I am back to feeling so sad and empty. He had such a great time surprising friends and family and going out to eat which everyone loves. We hope to meet him…"

"We military moms and spouses really treasure our time together! Sounds like the homecoming was very special. Hats off to your new employer for recognizing how important it was for you to have this family time! "

Finally home!

After his flight being delayed, my son is finally home and what a wonderful feeling. He loved having his little three year old niece there. Now she is stuck to him like glue. I love hearing every word whether good or bad about deployment..what he liked...what it taught him...what he didn't like....the friends he made and so on. I've always taught him to find something good about any life experience and he sure did! I am thankful to god...friends and family and this wonderful site. I also knew…See More

A dream come true.....my son is back in the states!

Days after my last post, I got the shock of my life. I was sitting in my kitchen and I received a call. I looked at the caller ID and my heart almost stopped. It was my son's phone and since he was deployed and could not use his personal phone I thought someone got his phone. Well it was my son calling from Florida ....Eglin AFB....he was home! He couldn't make it home for Christmas but that's ok. Just knowing he was back in the states was all I could ever want. He is scheduled to come home in…See More

Thought it would get easier

My son deployed in August and thankfully we have heard from him several times. We still don't know exactly where he is. I've accepted that and always do my best to sound upbeat and positive. I thought it would get easier but honestly it's so hard to say 'talk to you later'. I always end up in a puddle of tears and of course this time of year isn't helping. I should not feel like this since there are so many families who have not seen their loved one in much longer. Thank heaven I have the most…See More

Veterans Day...Thank you!

My son has been deployed since August but it seems like years. The hardest part is still not knowing where he is. God knows and that's all that matters. He does call from time to time and he sounds good. I am so happy he calls his sister and he skypes with his 3 year old neice. Just hearing his voice gets me through my day. I can't imagine a young wife and mother going through deployment. All of you deserve medals of your own. To all our military....you have my deepest gratitude. Blessings to…See More

I have a smile on my face.....heard from my son!

Received an uplifting message from another Air Force mom going through deployment. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! We have heard from our son a few times and we are grateful....thank heaven for skyping. He can watch his niece grow up...she was a few weeks old when he left for BMT three years ago.When he left home at 20 he still had that baby face. When I look at him now, just three years later, he is a grown man...his thoughts, the way he carries himself and his plans for the future. I…See More

"I know what you're going through. My oldest son Alex is in the Air Force and just left to South Korea yesterday I can't sleep or eat I feel as though I'll never see him again. Yes we worry bad he's only 19 pretty mature but come…"

Miss him so much

My youngest was just deployed. I don't know where and for how long. You worry from the day they are born but this is brutal. I am sure it will get better but right now......I am walking and breathing.....good start! We are new to the military life and would appreciate hearing from moms who have been through deployment. Seems like yesterday we were at BMT graduation.....it's been two years since then. Time is flying! God bless our loved ones.
