I Don't Have Words

to express my feelings except to ask you to pray for my son once again.

Michael was told today that he wasn't being paid this Friday, that he wasn't in the system, yada, yada, yada.

With everything that is going on with me, he is trying to be so brave and tell me that he's OK about this latest Army glitch, that I'm not to worry, etc. but a mom knows. I know without a shadow of a doubt that he is calling the Inspector General in the morning because the Major that has been working on this for him told him to do so because the Major has tried all he knows to do to get Michael paid.

I ask your prayers for movement and wisdom on the Inspector General's part that they will get to the bottom of this and that Michael is paid on the 15th.

It hurts me to see anyone not get paid for honestly doing their job to the best of their ability but in this case, it cuts me like a knife to see my own flesh and blood, someone who has done nothing but his best, to be messed with like this.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.

If tears are a language that God understands, He should understand me well since I talked to Michael this evening...

I cannot believe this!!! what is wrong with those people? How do we get this fixed? I know you cannot intervene but I wish there was someone to call, and to complain to...

Michael is certainly in my prayers tonight.


OMG, still??
Unbelievable! I'm so sorry, more prayers going out.

Again? Seriously?

I have no idea what to say.

Prayers just don't seem like enough.

Keeping Michael in my prayers that they will finally, once and for all, get this straighten out so that he can get paid for a job well done. If this was private business the government would be all over then to make sure that their employees got paid. How come the government, which of course is over the military, doesn't have to do the same. I just don't get it.

Poor Michael can't get a break can he with his pay!! What can be the problem? I mean how hard is it to add someone to payroll? Makes no sense to me. He, along with his Mommy is always in my prayers.

God Bless~

Oh Ness,

This is absolutely ridiculous!!!! I have no words. I am so angry about this!

Thank you for the beautiful story that you shared on my most recent post. You have some lovely memories of your Mother, and I enjoy hearing about them.

Big hugs,
