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!

It is ironic: You teach him not to fight and now he's trained to do just that in the marines. So glad to hear he's still excelling in boot camp. That's awesome that he was able to call you guys.
