This is beautiful. It is a completely different feeling to be the mom of a Marine then the wife. Both are difficult. Its like your heart has come to a point of quiet surrender to a plan that you can never control. Watching two of the most important men in your life answer a calling that is sure to change them forever and trusting that this change is in God's plan no matter what, is a feeling no words can describe yet, this prayer might come close. Daria Knapp, Marine Corps, wife and mother.
