Quick Update on my Marine

I spoke with my son Matthew just moments ago!  He's doing well, says it's very cold but he's got some hand warmers.  He's safe for now, getting ready for a new mission where he'll be out in the field and away from phone contact for the next month or 2.  I can't imagine 2 months without hearing his voice. He hasn't received any of the packages that have been sent yet from me only a couple from his wife. Now he won't get those until he's done with this mission :( I guess he'll get Christmas really late!  I don't think my homemade fudge is going to stay fresh that long damn it. Hopefully the rest will be fine.  I don't know how much more of this I can take, I need this deployment over with, I'm not cut out to be the mother of a Marine. 

If any of you readers would like to know of  a great organization that helps send goodies to all our soldiers you can look up Operation Adopt a Ghost on FB (her website is under construction) this lady is amazing in the way he gives to our troops.  Another one is www.anysoldier.com but check out adopt a ghost first Linda is amazing and is trying to get my sons platoon adopted out.

I hope and pray your Marine is safe and continues to be through his mission. My cousin and his family are over seas. Though I believe he's in the Air Force.

Happy ICLW from #37 and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

Here from ICLW :) Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. Dr. Butts is actually a woman - I couldn't help wondering if that's her maiden or married name.

I'll be keeping your son (and your whole family) in my prayers. Best wishes to you - enjoy Christmas. :)

Must be hard having your son away for long periods of time. My heart goes out to you. Best wishes for 2011.
