Highs and Lows

The last few days have been filled with emotion levels to the extreme! Thursday brought our sailor son home for the first time in 4 years. He's now out of the Navy and looking for a home around our hometown. I can't even begin to describe the feelings that a mom has when this happens!

On the flip side, Friday night, one of the pregnant goats went into labor. She was the smallest of all the new moms and I could tell she was struggling to deliver. I went in to help her but the kid was just too large. I ended up having to put the doe down. That was tough- heartbreaking, and exhausting. 

It's amazing how life can be so good and so bad in such a short time. 


  1. Sorry to hear about your goat, but what a lovely uplift to have your son home for good.

  2. So sorry to hear about the doe. Glad you got a visit with your son.

  3. I remember coming back home after 4 years in the Corps. In a months time I hung up my uniforms, moved back in with my parents, married my high school sweetheart, moved out and made our home in a campus apartment with her, started college full-time, and started a part-time on-campus night job.

    Even without all the extra, leaving military service and moving back into civilian life and into your parents home is a jarring transition. Be prepared to have to grit your teeth a bit and be a little patient, Mama!
