A Sunday Morning
Happy Sunday morning all. After my morning prayer was said, my mind drifted to my son , Geramie Ervin in Marine boot camp. Since the day he told me, “Mom, I’m going to be a Marine”, which left me in tears, it has been quite an experience and journey from acceptance to support to pride.
Not knowing what your recruit is experiencing – it is a mad mixture of emotions. Humbleness, pride, love are at the top of my list. There are several books, of course, about this but not quite from a Mom’s perspective and a brother who have seen their recruit through the transformation of deciding to become a Marine to earning that title and becoming one.
My novel is on the back burner again, because thanks to Jordan Ervin and another recruit parent, this weekend I began writing a new book on becoming a “Marine Mom”.
Ooh rah !!
