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. 🙂
