I guess we all know what I am thinking about…that newly minted Marine that we will be watching run by us in formation about the time you receive this.
What a joy it will be to see him with my own eyes. There is something about getting a letter or hearing his voice that is nice but it is not the same. Getting to put my eyes on him and give him a hug will make it really real. I am so proud of him!
I have a friend who told me that in her family they say, “We are so proud for you”! It is an intentional phrasing that they started when she and her sister had children. They say it because they are so proud for their person no matter what the outcome was or is. They are proud for them because they tried. Now, this is not a “trophy for everyone” moment. These children of theirs are not always “successful” in every attempt. This is an affirmation that they give because they are proud for them in those moments of genuine effort. Even as they comfort them in their loss or failing grade or other things, they know someone is proud for them.
I am so proud of and for Dallas! OOOH-RAH!
Much Love, Temple
