My Marine Recruit
Our son called home last night from Marine boot camp! He had earned a phone call because he tied for first during rifle shooting qualifications. He's an expert! I'm so proud. In one way it's strange to think of my little boy shooting. I mean, I resisted any toy guns in our house for years. Our sons finally got toy rifles at a Civil War reenactment, many thanks to their grandparents. ;) All these years I taught him to not fight and now he's a warrior. But you know, if anyone is going to protect our great country, I want it to be an expert rifleman. I know our boy will do his best to keep us safe. Oh God, please keep him safe too!
So, how does this relate to jewelry? I guess there are other jewels than just the ones we wear. One of my jewels is my son, the soon to be Marine. Oooo Rah!
