A New Favorite Pillow
Joining Cindy for her Favorites for Friday Show and Tell here:
As some of you know, I am part of a group of mamas who make up a Military Mom Prayer Group. The first Saturday of every month, as many of us as can will get together and share and pray for our sons or daughters serving in the Military.
We have Marine Moms, Navy moms, Air Force Moms, and Army Moms. All branches!
One mom actually has a son in the Air Force, one in the Navy, and now she has one in boot camp becoming a Marine at Parris Island, SC.
Today, I want to share with you about this special Air Force mom. She is the founder of our group and she is a dear friend and dedicated prayer warrior sister. Her name is Paula. Here she is at her son's graduation from the Air Force Academy.
This past meeting in August, she pulled a bag out when I walked in, and said she had something for me. She had made me a "Marine-Hugger Pillow." Girls....this is just the most touching thing to my heart. Paula had found a Marine Tee, and while sitting in the hospital with someone who was recuperating, she sewed that tee shirt into a pillow and then stuffed it.
She told me I was to hug it until my real Marine got back for me to wrap my arms around.
I'll tell you something. This pillow has gotten a LOT of squeezin' and some tears too. Thank you dear Paula. Love you muchly, and I will always cherish and KEEP this pillow. It is helping me through this looooooong deployment. You are a very special lady.
So, until this guy gets back...
There will be a whole lot of this!!!
Thank you Paula. Love you!
Hugs to all dropping by. Thanks for continuing to pray for our heroes...
