Hi Mom. So With some help I finally figured out what you did in the Airforce and at the Pentagon. I finally figured out why you has special weapons training, all those personality tests, all the stories you couldn’t tell and all those places you went.

And all I can say is Wow.  You were a total bad ass. We all know that you were, but this new information confirmed it. And how appropriate to find out about it on Mother’s day.  Safe to say that I will never be as much of a bad ass as you.

I am so proud of you.

This mother’s day isn’t as bad as the others in the past.  Yes, I have cried a bit, but mostly I am happy to be celebrating you, though I miss you so much.

Love you, always.
