sad phone message
I stopped home for a second and listened to my phone messages. A friends son is going to Iraq. She invited us to a farewell open house. My reaction to this message was something I have not experienced before. My whole body started tingling and shivering-from my head to my feet. I called and spoke to both the boy and my friend. I tried to give Ben encouragement. I tried to be positive. When I spoke to my friend, I told her I would try my hardest to say prayers for him every day even though I am not very good at praying. She said it might be better if I wrote letters to politicians and demonstrated to bring our troops home. Yuck Yuck Yuck-I really did not like that phone message!
