One Minute and Thirty One Seconds...

Just long enough to hear a voice say "Hi Mom..."

A voice calling for the first time since August 26th.

Just long enough to know he is focused

A young man who is all business and on a mission.

Just long enough to hear the longing

An extrovert who has not had a moment of alone time in almost three months.

Just long enough to ask for comforts from home

Hearing a son missing home and family.

Just long enough to be reassured

To know his family will be there when he is at his most proud moment.

Just long enough to say...

Happy birthday, Son!

Just long enough to hear...

I love you!

Just long enough to make a mother strong for 20 more days.
