Photo by Pexel t’s a quiet early morning my daughter off to work early so it will be a quiet day for Miss Abigail and I . After another restless night but still getting sleep , I woke early and thoughts flooded my mind… so shaking or trying ..to get rid of the thoughts . I jumped in the shower letting the warm water run over me relaxing my stiff joints ..after I realize it was time to get out and grab some coffee. Miss Abigail appeared from her favorite chair to sit in her spot in the middle of the kitchen floor staring at me waiting for her morning treat .. that I have started and my daughter shakes her head when she see this 🙂..grabbing my coffee and giving out the treat I notice it felt good to be up earlier . To Memories For Tomorrow thank you for the post you wrote thinking of you as I say it felt good to be up earlier ❤️ if you haven’t visited her blog you need to 🙂
Now sitting enjoying my coffee as I watch the news and say a prayer to the reason my thoughts are wandering. Chatting with my son last night he talked about how ready he was how they all were to come home Saturday but stated he was nervous and I was afraid to ask … he said he had one last test which is today and he needed to pass it or he’s there another week …. ughh I wondered why I felt a vibe when we chatted but couldn’t understand why . So I’m waiting and hoping and praying he passes so he can come home Saturday . He said he would let me know as soon as he could.. I’ll keep you posted . For now I have to keep myself busy and that is a challenge .. I won’t settle until I hear. And a quiet house does not help. Happy the sun is out and the blue sky is beautiful. Miss Abigail settled in her chair nice and content I’ll try to absorb her contentment . Now it’s time to find some breakfast and slowly do a few things . Since my body is still recovering from the sciatic pain. I don’t want to push it just yet. Have a good day everyone.
I woke after a very restless night of waking up every hour … my son had to be up for 4:00 this morning to be ready to leave the house by 5 … so I was so worried he would sleep through the alarm that my my mind must of been having me react this way . When the hr I woke up and it was 4 I was on my phone texting him are you up ? when I did not get an answer back .I was nudging my husband to get up and check ..he looked at me half asleep not too happy with waking him and puzzled how I was awake . Oh if he only knew how my night was. Today was the day the Army National Guard Sargent picked him up for his physical exam the last thing to do to make it in was to pass that…and he made it in. So my day was spent keeping myself as busy as possible with cell phone and home phone in hands reach. Let’s say a lot of praying inside and outside as I dodged the sun not knowing if it wanted to come out blazing or hide behind the clouds . When it was tolerable it was spent out side with my book and phones in hand and I looking up to the sky and praying he would be okay and in good shape to join. When 3:00 in the afternoon arrived I prayed even harder that no news was good news. At 4 he arrived home and my son and the Sargent got out of the vehicle and greeted me. Anxiously I waited to hear the news. The Sargent said to me well we have good news and bad I’m like oh no …okay? He said good news he passed and has been sworn in . I just gasped with joy because I knew how much he wanted this ,my son has always wanted this and it’s a good start to a college and army career .. so I said what’s the bad news ? He said well it was a very long day for one .. just waiting around for everything to process and instead of the end of June shipping out for boot camp for 6 months it’s October then back for Christmas for two weeks and then gone till April . So weekend trainings two weekends a month through the summer to stay in shape . We could work with this. So my son is thinking summer classes until boot camp is over them start up in the fall for the rest of his college so it will be college and National Guards on weekends 8 yrs well 4 college 8 National Guards and who knows maybe full time serving after ..knowing my son I may not be surprised. I just know we are so proud of him. He wants to serve so much I thank God for getting him through this day .. I think I prayed all day to get myself through.
Now it’s night time and my son is settled in bed . I would think he would be tired after getting up early and all he had to do plus made it to a part of his track practice . HIs championship meets start tomorrow under the Lights so another long day with School and meets Well time to settle myself and pray one more time with a big thank you. 🙂 good night!
