SkyWatch for an AF Mom

SkyWatch has moved to their own site. Good luck to the SkyTeam!



This morning's SkyWatch post is dedicated to AF Mom Peggy.

Peggy and her lovely family live in western Wisconsin. You know, that area of the country not formerly known for its ocean-front view... but that seems to have had one for the last two months! Oh my goodness the rain they've gotten. I can't imagine.

She is also the mom of SrA Corey (stationed at Minot) who has been an absolute DOLL to Avivah as she makes the move to there too. I mean, how many guys would answer a text message that asks whether the beds there are twin or twin extra long?! He did! And I think I have already mentioned that he agreed to be the recipient of V's moving boxes this Monday. This "kid" was raised right!

V has been there for two days and the two of them haven't yet met ~ though she ran into someone else yesterday that asked her if she was the person to whom CW was talking (she said 'Yep!') ~ I think she's already decided to take him out to lunch or something as a thank you for all his help.

This post is my thank you to his mom, Peggy. Your kind and encouraging words set my mind more at ease as Avivah moved from home and made her first PCS.

For you, my friend, a picture I took of a silver lining as the rain here cleared.

May the rains there slow down to a more normal pace. May the tears of frustration you shed not have you paddling a canoe in your basement. May the bees keep their stingers to themselves. May the berries always be sweet.

And may our road trip to visit our kids not be too long away.

Aww Lea, I did nothing special at all, just connected V with Corey and they took it from there. It's what families do. The picture is so awesome, we had a whole day without rain so I think it helped.Hopefully our kids will meet this weekend. Love ya
