I Love His Smile
One of his favorite things... talking on the cell
I love to see my kids smile and I absolutely love to hear them laugh!! I can remember the first time I heard each of them laugh -- that laugh that seems to just bubble up out of them and explode into the air... the kind that you just can't help but laugh along... and the smile that makes you smile, too (even when you don't want to!) Oh, they all have those "other" smiles -- the "ok, so how do I get out of this one?" or the "I know what I'm getting for Christmas" smile and the "I think I might just get away with this" smile... and the "oh, oh... she knows" grin as well... But I love the "I am so happy" and the "I am so proud" smiles more than any other. These pics capture some of my most favorite smiles of my soldier, my son. They do make me smile, but at the same time they make me want to cry... I know that will make sense to lots of moms and wives and girlfriends with guys in the Sandbox or that had them there or that will be sending them there...
When I woke this morning, I was disappointed that I hadn't heard when an IM had come in from my son some time overnight with a list of things he and the guys needed... which closed with
keep sending them boxes, love ya maaa ur the best. really. the best. mwwaahs
it made me smile (which led to this post), but at the end of the message was the time stamp
signed off at 3:25:27 AM.
no big wonder that I didn't hear the "moooo"... I'm pretty much unconscious at that hour!
So, son, if you're reading this -- there's necessities and goodies on the way... packaged with love... lots of love... and smiles.
