My airman called last night. Yes, that same airman who was so impressed with all the birthday wishes left on my blog for him:) And, the same airman who is supposed to be deployed in June (and better come home before he leaves.) We chatted for a minute and he was talking too fast and a bit louder than normal – which he always does when he is flustered. Finally, he says, “Mom…I have to admit. I’m really stresssed.”
“Why? What’s up?” My mother’s heart skips just a bit.
“My deployment has been cancelled.”
Seriously, now. What am I supposed to say to that??
“WOO D HOO”…seemed just a bit insensitive as I could tell he was genuinely stressed out about this.
“WHAT? And this is a problem?”…….maybe not the best time for sarcasm; however
“AWW, Son..I’m so sorry”…..well, that would just have been a lie!! What is a mother to do?? So, I will just leave this as my Thankful Thursday post. It is what it is. 🙂

Yay!!! I agree with your Mother's heart. I would be thankful too!
Oh Jenn, I am so glad for you!!
Most Mom's would be singing the Halleleujah chorus I am sure!!
Sounds like a celebration is in order. I didn't know he was suppose to deploy in June. I am so thankful you don't have that worry hanging over your head!!
Blessings sweet friend,
P.S. Thanks for your comments on my repurposed light shade.
I say that's reason to rejoice…God sure answers prayers with perfect timing, doesn't he? 🙂
I'd say that is a huge praise and definitely something that you can be thankful for! Maybe Jordan will get a new assignment at a base near you…wouldn't that be nice?
Oh YAY for sure!!! YAY!! My mother's heart is right there with you…
I got your e-mail, HOWEVER..when I read it this morning I was getting ready to jump (not that I really jump anywhere, haha) into the shower so I decided I would find the instructions and mail them when I sat down again this morning. Well, instead of hitting SAVE, I hit delete…Now I SHOULD be able to retrieve it from my delete folder, only for some reason on my new computer it has NEVER worked….Bottom Line? I don't have your address again. SIGH…I am soo computer challenged. Anyway, I will need you to send me your address again…sorry…Also, I did want to tell you that the instructions on how to change the header are on this sheet too. OK, guess that's it. We will have to try again. Have a good day…HUGS…OH and again, such good news on your son.. = )
Quietly clapping my hands over here in the corner…. shhhhh….
Woo hoo, what an answer to prayer!!! I would have been thrilled. God has a way of working things out, doesn't he? I know you were so excited. You guys will be celebrating at your house now. That is so wonderful. Hopefully you will get to see Jordan soon. Love & blessings from NC!
My mama's heart is rejoicing with yours! "It is what it is" and we know God is in control.
Happy belated birthday to a fine young man, I loved the pictures through the years of him.
Thank you again for your kind comments this week. You are a blessing and such a source of inspiration to me. Blessings to you today!
