Get a towel, I'm going to gush!


This is my Army Son.
I am so proud to be his mother.
It makes me proud to think I was blessed with the opportunity to know this young man like few others.  At times he was confused and shortchanged myself but I have always known that within him was something far greater than he had yet dreamed possible.
This Friday my Army Son will finish one stretch of his journey to amazing himself.
I say amazing himself because it doesn't amaze me.  I always knew he would find that something that filled him with pride and passion.  I always knew he was capable of far more.
Nothing he ever does will ever amaze me because I know that God gave me a son bound to do great things.  I pray that with each accomplishment my son silently asks himself, "I wonder if this was that great thing mom always said I do?  Or is there still more?"
I pray he ALWAYS knows he still has more potential within him.
As every mother can understand, I love this young man my little baby grew up to be.
Congratulations!


I wonder if I can still out run him?
