I See the Moon and the Moon Sees Me

I know it sounds corny, but it is comforting to me that the same moon I see is the same moon my sons see. I am missing them a little more than I care to admit.

N hasn't called, but they have been playing out of town. They are back at their home stadium today through the weekend. We are planning to go see him this weekend.

C hasn't had a chance to call until last night. I was so excited to get his postcard last week and even more excited to hear his voice. He sounded good. He said he was doing well. But he gave us, at least in my opinion, a shocker: He will not be coming home as originally planned. He was given the option to job shadow an officer in Korea! I know this is a great opportunity for him; and I'm very proud of him! But I was so looking forward to having him back home next week...and now I have to wait another four weeks.

So, when I see the moon I know that my boys are seeing the same moon and that is a little comforting.

Happy Wednesday!


  1. Sending prayers your way. It's so tough to want to hug loved ones and are unable to. I like the "moon" thought.

  2. My mom used to (sometimes still does) sing that little song about the moon. It is a comfort.

  3. When OS went to college, I used to go and just sit in his room. Sad, isn't it?

  4. I think every mom has felt that very same way at least once in her life. I know I have....sweet post...and my heart and prayers are with you.
