So much going on in the Middle East and I have decided to leave the uglies off for the most part. Today is just a little peice about nothing.
I am sitting here with a pen and paper (for real) trying to think of something clever to write in a letter to my L’il Trooper. Alas, my mind has turned to mush.
Sitting here staring into space, I glance down at my wrist and begin slowly turning the beautiful silver bracelet. So simple, yet so elegant. A gift from my son, sent to me during his previous deployment.
Touching the bracelet, I say a silent prayer. I have no idea how many times thru the day I do that. Sometimes I touch the bracelet and ask David a question. “How you doing today, son?” “Are you staying warm?” “Are you getting enough sleep?” “Are you OK?”
All silent questions…. Hoping he can feel our love all the way from Texas.
Drumming my pen on the desk… Nothing exciting… Nothing new… Winter has hit South East Texas and Houston almost shut down. It is so funny. Merely talking of ice has crippled the city.
Growing up in Northern Wyoming, I saw snow banks that were over the tops of the cars. They still kept the schools open. Here in Houston, the possibility of ice and everything slows to a crawl.
Let me see what else….. Dogs are missing you. No one else to growl at…
It must be the gray skies……… My mind is as bleak as the weather.
I did find a short funny… Enjoy, while I get back to my letter writing.
