Please meet Landon.. his dad Marine LCPL Carpenter made the ultimate sacrifice while serving with the 3/8 in Afghanistan earlier this year.. a month before his son was born. Never forget the price of freedom.
I don’t care what kind of blog I am, or what kind of blog you are, I saw this and it broke my heart, a little boy who will never get to meet his daddy, and daddy who never had the joy and honor of holding his child because he gave his life to keep all of us safe.
Has fights. Has trust. Has faith. Has tears. Has hurt. Has sweet smiles. Has genuine laughter. Has weird, stupid, unnecessary arguments. Has patience. Has communication. Has secrets. Has jealousy. And most importantly,love. This is all just a mess that turns out beautiful & an experience that can never be forgotten.
AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN TWO YEARS, I GOT A BOTTOM LOCKER
I’m so mad.
How do I leave? How do I forget? I can’t take this pain anymore, you treat me like shit. I’m sure something will push me to leave when the time is exactly right. The same exact time you’ll realize how much you’ll miss me.
