Happy birthday, Younger Daughter!

Today is Younger Daughter's 24th birthday!

Goodness, where do the years go? It seems only yesterday that she was a baby.

Younger Daughter, as most of you know, is in the Navy and stationed in Japan. She got to celebrate her birthday in the worst way possible: by heading out to sea for six months. "Mom, I don't wannnaaaaaa go underway," she joked. I replied, "Then don't go. Simple as that."

She is now at a juncture in her naval career where this may or may not be her last deployment. She has put in a request for a shore-duty placement at a desirable location. If she gets offered this position, she may stay in the Navy for another tour of duty. If not, she has many civilian options open to her. She should find out in the next two months whether her request was approved.

But whatever her future, today's her birthday. Love you, honey!


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Younger Daughter!! ...and many more!!

  2. Best wishes and bon voyage! I'll join Patrice over in the worry section until she arrives safely back in port.
