His Birthday

Today was my soldier’s birthday. I hadn’t talked to him in a while and I was starting to get nervous. What was keeping him from being able to call? I was praying and praying that he was safe and then I broke down and texted another military wife in our unit to see if she’d heard from her husband. I just wanted to know that my soldier was okay! Literally, seconds after I hit “send,” my phone rang! It was my man! He had given himself a phone call home as his one birthday present to himself after a long night of flying.

I found out that working 15 hour days/nights non-stop since arriving in country was what was keeping him from being able to call! He was so tired, but he missed us and wanted to check and make sure that we were okay.

All I can say is, BEST CALL EVER!
