Mattie called this afternoon and said Mom I have good news and bad news not something I was wanting to hear. The first part yes that is really good the next part not so much.
Good News~ Thanks to all my faithful friends and their prayers, Mattie is NOT deploying with his troop.
Bad News~ Mattie is now considered a replacement for any person who gets injured etc. So even though he is a bradley mechanic he could be sent over as a Cav. scout or a hummer driver or anywhere they might need him.
So I just wanted to come and post this to send my heartfelt thanks out to all who prayed for Mattie and to ask to keep him in your prayers. He is still coming home at the end of July for 15 days and the party is still on!
