How many times have you ahd to search for a birth certificate? How many times have you had to call to ask for a new copy of ____? Ever gotten to a place to get established, and needed a document that you forgot at home?

Female airmen at Lackland in TRS320/668

My 18 year old daughter left on August 28 for BMT & is now in her third week! We have had a couple phone calls and our first letter came yesterday! I think we are both doing better as the weeks roll by! LOL

Does anyone else out there have a daughter at Lackland?

WOT 1

Monday started WOT 1.  I haven't received any calls or letters from my son.  I understand this is a priviledge that they must earn.  They even have to earn the priviledge of READING the letters they receive.  This is all to get them ready for their new life.  I didn't understand how my life would change as his changes.  I know he is becoming stronger, more independent and self assured.  As his mom, I am SO not used to not being able to see, hear and touch him!  This has been the biggest…

The scripted call

boy was that tough! He called and we got to hear his voice, but other than "I love you" and " be strong", I didn't get to actually talk to him. He started out really strong, but by the end, his voice was wavering.  I managed not to cry while he was on the phone. I want to be as strong as he is and must continue to be to get through this.  I pray for him every single day.  I know he will succeed.  I look forward to meeting the man he will become! I am SO PROUD to be his mom!

Zero Week

Well, we are on day two of Zero Week.  We haven't heard from our Airman yet.  I can't wait for that first phone call, just to know he is safe.  I have already begun writing letters!  I want to be as supportive as possible. He has never been away from home before.  This is a huge adjustment. I am SO PROUD to be his mom!

Sometimes It's Ok to Be A Baby...

Have you ever had a bad computer day? The email doesn't work right, you can't access the files you need, or you simply can't get connected.  My day is like that today, with all of the above going on.  It sounds like a small thing but when you can't get what you need when you need it, it can be like the world is on fire!  But I was looking in my journal and  found this message from January 26:



"Today I want you to picture Me cradling you.  Whenever you feel the stressors of the…

Does He See You?

So often we question and wonder...does He see me? Does He know me? Does He love me? I was wondering the same thing one day.  Here is God's message to both of us:



Why do you love me? Don't you see me? What is it about me that thrills you?

"You are like me. You are part of me. You are mine. I created you to love. Everything about you is fantastic. Sure there are things we're going to work on, but you, the eternal you, you are divine and simply beautiful.  I want…

Giving You Everything...

Here is what God has in mind concerning you today:

"I love you and I really do want what's best for you. I'm excited about you! Just walk with me. Talk with me. Give me everything you are so I can give you everything I am. I want to make myself known to you, as the Father makes himself known to me. I'm not holding anything from you. I want to give you everything.  Abide in me and let my words abide in you."

With love and blessing
