Our son has been accepted to United States Military Academy – West Point!
Just as I was ready to go and speak in a middle school, my husband calls and says, “Nathan got a package from West Point.”
He will attend six weeks of rigorous training (affectionately known as Beast) and after successful completion, begin his 47 month journey at West Point.
I did not grow up in a military family so this is all so new to me.
New terminology, new people, new experiences for all of us, especially our son.
Our family will take him there and say goodbye and not hear much from him most of the summer.
I am not crying as I type this which shocks me.
I am proud, scared, overjoyed, nervous, excited, thrilled, sad and every feeling in between.
I know the Lord is teaching all of us some lessons and has placed all these pieces together for His glory.
I am the mama of a soldier, whoa.
