Mother's Day

I just had a "moment" and needed to blog. I was a tad worried because it was late for my phone call from my husband. Finally he did call and he was stressed because it's another stressful week in this life we have chosen. They had a "smoke session" to "celebrate" their halfway mark in their training. (Sorry for all the quotation marks) A smoke session is NOT where they all sit around and smoke. Rather, they are required to grab 50 pound packs and do push ups, run upstairs, change clothes, run back down and carry logs around for about 1 mile and then do stuff. Yeah. A real celebration (the reason for all my quotation marks). This week is also one of the hardest. Many people fail at this point and are recycled till the next class starts. Needless to say, all that created a small amount of stress. He was also worried that he might not be able to call. But he did and he said he needed me to do something for him. He gave me two phone numbers and said he needed me to call and make a reservation for 4 for May 11th at 10 a.m. I was wondering what this was for. I could not imagine an event that we'd take the girls to here. Then he said, "It's for Mother's Day. I wanted to surprise you with this brunch but I cannot make the call during their operating hours." I honestly cried. Can you imagine? He loves me so much that he not only remembered Mother's Day but also took time to find a place to take me? A place I have never been? Sweet. I cannot ask for a better husband. He amazes me every day!

Hey there... you have been on my mind a lot. I hope things are going well -- other than the typical stresses of the Army. I hope you all enjoy that brunch out. Take very good care of your wonderful self. I am praying for you and the girls (Emma prays for them both every night.)

I know it's silly but I felt like I did something right. I'm so glad
he remembered Mothers day for you.
I would have been in tears if Kayla had said that about her Daddy.
