Imagine HOW SHOCKED I WAS when she informed me that she dropped all of her FIREFIGHTER CLASSES and IS JOINING THE ARMY FULL TIME!!!!
YIKES!!!! I am in shock.....and YES, I tried to do everything I could to talk her out of it.

Now, I have to give her 100% of my support and wish her well (and do a whole lot of praying)
So I am officially a MOM to TWO ARMY SOLDIERS.....and yes, she is going to be a COMBAT MEDIC, just like big sister Kristi. She of course is going into the Army full time and Kristi is in the Army National Guard. TWO BIG DIFFERENCES.

Please put her in your prayers as she starts this new journey (and pray that my nerves will be calmed) KISS YOUR KIDS, TELL EM YA LOVE EM....and as much as it hurts, TELL EM YOU SUPPORT THEM 100%!!!!
Hugs and Love, Amy

Hi Amy. I hope you have been well. I can't believe that Alli is off to the Army! Your girls and their integrity are completely a credit to you and how you have raised them. What a beautiful job you've done.

Blessings... Polly

Ginger said...

Wow, that would blow my mind also. Must be soooo hard for you but yet you are right, you have to support her decision. I will be praying for your courageous daughters and pray for all their dreams to be fulfilled, and yours too.

Amy, I'm sure this was difficult to hear, but I for one am proud of them, especially being a combat medic. I will pray for all of you and hope that these wars end soon. We need our family and friends back home safely. Big hugs and love, Pat
