My daughters are the love of my life.
Today my heart breaks for Amber. Today Amber watched her soldier boy leave for Iraq.
So here Rusty and I being the rock that Amber needs. I know how hard it is to watch someone you care about leave. I know how unfair life can be.
I want better for my daughters. I don't want them do ever date anyone in the military. All the guy will do is break their heart. Every time this country call, they will pack their bags and leave. Then there will be my daughter waiting on him and crying herself to sleep. I want better for my daughter. I don't want them to live the life I have lived.
I must ask myself at what point do I stop trying to protect my children and let them fall. I just hate seeing Amber cry. This part of being a mom sucks.
Last night was the first night that all of the marines got together at the house.
Nikki came in about 11:30 and the first person she saw was Lewis. Nikki ran up to him, jumped on him and gave him a huge hug.
Later on I over heard Nikki explaining to her so called boyfriend why she gave Lewis a hug.
That just ticks me off. Who in the world does this guy think he is? Nikki has not seen Lewis since he got home! Maybe this so called boyfriend needs to find out what it is like to have true friends.
It just ticks me off that Nikki was explaining her actions to this boy. As far as I am concerned she only has to explain herself to Rusty and I.
Today is mine and Rusty anniversary, so I am going to go and do something nice for Rusty.
