I hit publish on last night's post and spent the next half an hour
weeping.....just letting the tensions go.
As I began to feel better I heard the kitchen door close.
It seemed a bit early for Chelsea,
who was out with friends
at a Bible Study.
But I wasn't concerned.
Around the corner came son number two.
I remarked that indeed he was not Chelsea.
Then he proceeded to say he needed to speak with us.
He was planning to join the Army.
Now I have to say that this is not
a totally new
this was a totally new and serious moment.
I called Warren from wherever he was in the house.
Mikey began to talk.
I began to sob.
Remember, I was already emotional.
I had just typed the words about crisis...
referring to them
in the past tense.
What in the world was I thinking????
long story short.
We will likely meet with a recruiter soon
and see what the next step looks like.
Please pray for us as we learn about
this new (to us) world.
