Single Mom of 3 from MA. I have 2 daughters (24 and 21) and my son K (22) joined the Navy August 31, 2007 and is now serving on the USS Abraham Lincoln....it hasn't been an easy adjustment but I am extremely proud of my "shining star" and all the young men and women that serve our country...my brother is a Colonel in the USAF and I understand the military life and dedication, but it is different when it is your own son...I can offer alot of support for new Navy Moms living thru Boot Camp and deployment...I remember I cried every day for 4 weeks and lived for the first phone call and the short letters....or and the box of clothes.....more tears.....but the day of graduation was unforgettable and worth every tear I shed. I have lived through and survived my son's first seven month deployment and cried tears of joy at the Homecoming October 12, 2008. It is a journey. Goodbyes aren't goodbyes, but long silent hugs and a quick kiss. I look forward to sharing and making new friends here......:)
I am here to support or represent my:
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy Career?
When I heard “Navy,” I:
Was concerned or afraid
From my experience with the Navy, the most important thing I learned was:
How complete strangers will come up to me and ask me questions when I'm wearing my Proud Navy Mom sweatshirt and will tell me to tell my son Thank You for protecting Our Country.........Gosh, that just makes you feel so proud and thankful for having such a great son. The Navy has allowed my son to see the abilities he has and he has become a proud, confident young man.
I'm a Mother with a sailor from the USS Enterprise, wishing everyone aboard the USS ABE LINCOLN safety as they go through the Strait . We all say a prayer for our troops on this ship & know that GOD has their backs. Fair Winds & Following Seas
I haven't been active on this site for soooo long and now my son is FINALLY HOME!!!!! He took the One Year Early Out Option in August and will be starting college. I am thrilled he is back home. The Navy experience was a wonderful one for him and myself and my daughters. I meet alot of great N4Ms over the 4 years on this site. It offers so much support, love and friendship. I wish you all the best!! Smooth sailing!!
How are you doing? I missed hearing from you. How is Caleb doing? The new love of your life! AWWWHH!!! That's so beautiful!
I'm doing well over here. SO hating the temperatures! HAHAH!
How's the temperatures running in my favorite state of Massachuttes?
I swear, I should have been born in Massachuttes, I think that's such a beautiful state!
I just got the Massachuttes vocation book, I love to dream about going! UGH!
I was so hoping to go to Plymouht this weekend. It's my 30 year since Doug and I have met. I planned this since last year.
This year we got screwed with the taxes. Now that I'm on Disibilty, taxes were not taken out, so we had to pay this year.
Oh well, Plymouth will have to go on with out me! HAHA!
Kim called tonight. I was so determine to try to hear her. Her ship finally pulled out for five days and had 4 fires. That's good to hear! HAAH! One fire was electrical, another was oil, but I couldn't understand the other two.
Then I was joking with Kim. I told her that TV show "Ghost Hunters" investigated a few Navy ships, and did find evidence of paranormal activity. This part is true.
I joked that they got a call to go to Norfolk, VA. She asked which ship. I told her, "Yours" the USS Normandy. I'm dying now, trying not to laugh.
Andrea, I did not expect her answer! She told me that there is one ghost. I responded, "WHAT!" SHe told me she hasn't seen it yet, but the Sailors talk about it among themselves. Supposebly, years ago some Sailor hung himself in the engine room! Now, I have to research this out of my own curiousity! HAHA!
I finally did admit to her that I was joking about Ghost Hunters investigating her ship. That was too funny, I didn't espect that answer! HAHA!
Let me get going. Kiss Caleb for me! HAHA! You have a blessed weekend!
Take care and God bless.
Well, congratulations grandma!!! How wonderful!!! God bless, I'm so happy for you and your family. Caleb's a good size, God bless him!!
What a blessing!! I know your dying to hold him!! You can't fly out to see him? If it were me, I wouldn't have the patience to wait!! HAHA!
I'm happy to hear that Kevin is doing well. That's great about him sharing an apartment with some buddies.
Kim is doing good. She mentioned the same thing about sharing an apartment. I don't remember if she has moved in yet. SHe called on Easter, but I had a bad hearing day, so I couldn't understand what she was saying.
I know she has mentioned that maybe, her ship might pull out next month for a week.
That's about it for the moment. I'm so happy to hear that wonderful news!!
You take care and have a blessed tomorrow.
Take care and God bless,
