Spending time with Jake

Wednesday morning I woke up to a text on my phone from Jake that he was going to be flying to Whidbey Island on Thursday morning!   It was only going to be just for that one day but I would drive all night just to see him for 1 hour!  Having two of my sons away in the Navy gives me a mix of emotions.  First is the immense pride that I have that they are both willing to sacrifice so much for our wonderful country.  Secondly is the urge to kidnap them and hide them in the closet so they can stay with me forever!  Okay maybe not forever!  I once read this quote “Having a child is like having a piece of your heart walking around outside your body”.  I think this sums it up for how I feel.  When they leave my heart literally aches inside for them.  But none the less we had a wonderful visit that was short but oh so sweet and he will be back soon.  Look at this boy, how can you not love a face like this!
