National Guard

in one hour my youngest son meets with a recruiter. he feels he should signup to help him pay for his college. BUT his father and i have been able to pay for every bit of his college so far. He
has one year left until graduation from college.

i'm not really sure why he feels compelled to seek out this way. I am really praying about his decision, but as he reminded me last week, "he is an adult and can make his own decisions." He has a friend who wants to join bc his brother and father served in the military. Praying for a wise decision and one that God wants for his life. I'm not God and don't pretend to be just mom.

Oh this is one of the hardest things a Mother has to do. is let our children make their own decisions...but you know exactly what to do and that's pray for him and no matter what, be comforted in knowing that His Heavenly Father is with him every step of the way.
I'll lift him up in my prayers too!

He will come to the right decision, he has his mum and dad on his side, he mustn't rush into it. Take his time. They all want to 'do their bit' sadly the times are bad just now. My thoughts are with you and your husband. Bless you both.
