Perspective

Today while I was getting my son's stuff together to take him back to his sophomore year in college it dawned on me. When the wars started my son was in the 4th grade. Now he is going into his second year in college and his dad is still in the fight, we are still doing this. It has been such a huge part of our lives, a dominating force that has controlled so much of the last 10 years I can barely remember what we used to have to plan around.
It really puts things in perspective...how long we have been doing this.

These are some powerful words and do, indeed, put it in perspective. Thanks for sharing and wishing you peace as you wait for your warrior(s).

I think it says a lot of about how he feels about his father, to want to follow in his footsteps. What a great compliment to your parenting and love that, with how much things move around, things changed, and how many bad things happen, you have a son with such a bright future. You,both, must be so proud. I know this wasn't the point of this post, but that's what it made me think of.

Daniel was an infant, so whenever I look at him I think to myself..."he has really never known life without war in it"

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
