We had a great Mother’s Day present just a few moments ago — our son called!
He is well. He’d only heard about the incident with the missing soldiers yesterday. Seems one of his best friends was hit with shrapnel during an attack a few days ago and his unit had been in blackout mode for the last several days. He was very apologetic, which I find humorous. Him apologizing for being ok is the equivalent for someone being apologetic for winning the lottery!
I told him to not let it happen again!
