Army Mom’s Safe Haven

Christina: The Survivor
Hubby and I after the wedding at his Mom's
I wore a beige lace dress and a mantilla over my head (not shown but I still have it)
Becky is in the left bottom and my brothers, Dane and Paul, are in the background

THE SURVIVOR

My grown son, said recently:
" Dad says you're a survivor, Mom"
I'd never thought it in terms like that for me.
I guess my ex-husband meant
surviving his year away
when he went to Vietnam,
then the divorce,
and surviving as a single mom......

But after I thought about it
for a while, in terms of me -
I desperately wish I
hadn't had to be.
