#SOL18: The Power of Eight

The  Power of EightScreenshot 2018-05-07 at 9.16.43 PM.png

It was in the eighth month

That I first counted his fingers and toes

All perfectly formed

That babe of mine.

It was in the year 08

That he graduated from high school

Ready to challenge the world

And to venture forth.

And in his eighth year of service

Fort Jackson, Fort Hood, Fort Knox, and Fort Campbell

Overseas deployments numbering two

He’s now a second lieutenant.

In the year 18

A college graduate

Ready for the next chapter

With his family every growing!

    1. So interesting to find a “number” to build connections and milestones!

  3. So many wonderful accomplishments all connected by the number “8”. Your love and pride shines through, Fran. And even posted on the 8th.
