He Did It


Gus received his Eagle, Globe and Anchor today. This makes him an official United States Marine.

There are no words to accurately explain how I feel. I am proud, impressed and amazed at his accomplishment. I am also sad, worried and already missing him. I'm thinking I feel like every other mother who's child enters the military.

Please, don't take your freedoms for granted. Please know there are sons and daughters as well as brothers, sisters, husbands and wives out there sacrificing their lives for all of us. If you will just appreciate what my children are doing for you, then it is all worth it.
