I can't really tell the whole story because of safety issues, but I can say that Becky and her fellow soldiers are, and have been in danger. Shell, Becky's mom, was over Thursday and told me what had just happened there and it made it so real to me. You know it's really easy to be patriotic and say we support our troops and to passively think of them once in a while; but to hear a mothers tale of her daughter being in danger can make the things our troops go through for our freedom really hit home. I sat here at my desk last night thinking of Becky, trying to write this post..... Becky, a real life, a human soul, a daughter, a sister, a dear friend.....I have a face to put with this war we are in...it's not passive, it's not safe, it's not fun, but they do it for us. They do what they do so that we can be free. I decided last night that from now on I will pray for Becky everyday like she is my daughter....Will you do the same? Can we commit to praying everyday for those who fight for us like they are our sons and daughters? Shell mentioned yesterday a story about Becky and my brother Simon....hearing that one story flooded my mind with memories of these two devoted little friends! When I wrote the post about Becky on her birthday I was remembering how she and Crys would spend the night with us and we would stay up and sing into my tape recorder! LOL! Crys and I would sing this one song (oh Crys! Remember that song?) and Rae and Becky would sing or cheer (they were in their cheer leading phase) and we would stay up giggling long after we should have been to sleep. But how could I forget Simon and Becky?? We would have them a pretend wedding like once a week! LOL! And how could I forget the day they decided to run away together! They got in Becky's dad's five speed car and tried to drive it away and ran into the carport! When our parents asked what their plans were, they said that they were going to get some money, buy Fruit Roll Ups, and eat them all day. If I'm not mistaken Shells carport still bears the scar of that little accident. I think they were around 6 or 7 years old when this happened! Can you imagine?
