The most important thing today

I get very, very scared inside when I enmesh my fears with what I believe a soldier has to feel fighting for their country. Do not interpret the following as anything other than what it says.  There is no hidden meaning about women in the military.  I cannot imagine being away from my country and especially my family…not knowing if I will make it home…especially if I were a female soldier.  I think women are made out of a different cloth than men as far as emotional and nurturing aspects are concerned.    I am so thankful there are men and women willing to do it all – go all the way – even knowing they might die defending all of us.  I’m not proud to say I don’t have it in me…but it is the truth.  I leave these thoughts with deep love and thankfulness…..and I’m very proud of my soldier!!

  1. That is a great picture of your guy!

    I can’t imagine. I am grateful for the brave men and women who choose to do it.


  2. I love that picture. He looks all bad boy soldier’y.
    I agree with you, I can’t even think too much about it. So tough.
