Mothers day..

 I will never forget how proud you were of me during those long days of my first deployment. I wish I could have spoiled you rotten today. It has been a long time, but trust me, we will never forget how lucky we were to have you as our mom.

Please watch over us and keep me going during this next deployment. I'll try to keep making you proud.

Mothers day is a day that I always dread.  I always hear my friends talk about this, that and the other with their moms, or complain about their moms.  I sit there mum about the topic, because I am a bit jealous that they get to take their mom to that pedicure appointment, have lunch, you name it.  My only advice to anyone is cherish every moment you can with your mother.  I know I did.  I miss her greatly, but I know she is happy.  She has awesome kids who just keep on succeeding at what they do.  Cutest grandkids on the face of the planet.  I know I am not the only one who feels this way on Mother's day..or even Father's day.  For me it is a day of remembrance and honoring her.  This year I relaxed at the beach bar I took her to in Virginia when she came to see me on my ship.  We toasted her memory, and watched the waves crash ashore.
