The Mighty Marine is home at last!

The Mighty Marine is home at last!


Even if just for a visit.... My heart is happy.

After two canceled flights and one delay in Georgia, I found myself driving the four hour trek to Detroit Metro Airport to pick up my Marine.

I will never forget the moment I saw him, for the first time, standing on that sidewalk, waving me down as I nearly drove past him in the pick up line.

I didn't recognize him.

Gone my boy and there stood a man.

The moment he got in my car all right in the world, once again. The four hour drive there and two hour wait at the airport a distant memory.

All I could think of ....

My is home at last.

The four hour drive home seemed to fly by as we talked and caught up the whole time. I heard about the big trucks he learning to drive. I filled him in on all the work gossip. We chatted about his plans to catch up with friends while he home for his short visit.

After nine hours of driving and two hours of waiting, though.... I wiped out when I finally got home. We sat on the couch for about an hour, relaxing and watching a movie, just like old times, when I finally had to call it a night.

Toothpicks couldn't hold my lids open any longer.

It the best night's sleep I've had in a long time. My Might Marine being home on Christmas is the best present I have ever received.

So, so thankful....

Happy Sunday!

    I sent you a message, forgot you may not be able to seee it, Just checking to see if you are OK, Havent seen you as we normaly do, hope you had a good holiday with your son..
Thank you.... All was well! I decided to spend as much time 'in the moment' as I could while my son was home, so I took a break from most of the online stuff that I do. He flew back on Saturday and i do miss him so much, but his being home was the best Christmas gift. He's being stationed overseas in a couple of weeks so it will be quite some time before I see him again.

I know the feeling. Last weekend the Ggirls trekked up to Dallas with me to visit my Mom. It was a good feeling to have them with me for a couple of days.

Ms. secret_lade,

Happy to hear that your Mighty-Marine is home with you for Christmas. It is truly a good thing.

I remember spending many a Holiday season far from family and hearth. It makes it all the better when they do get home.

Enjoy the time you have with him and wish him a Merry Christmas from an old sailor.
