Good morning friends! Did my title get your attention? Well, I’ve been trying to come up with a post for today, but have had on luck. The simple truth is that my heart’s not in this right now. Those of you who know me already know that son #2 is leaving today for U.S. Navy basic training. Yes, it will surely be grueling. Yes, I know he will be fine. He will do great. His future is very bright with some amazing opportunities. For all of that I am very grateful. HOWEVER, I am still a mom, and he is my whole heart. I hate the thought of him leaving. I hate that I won’t have contact. I really hate the thought of anyone being mean to him or him being sad and lonely and I’m not there. Quite honestly, it is the only thing on my mind right now.
In nine weeks we will see him again and I am sure he will be stronger and more confident then. At least, that is my hope. In the meantime, I am truly sad and already feel his absence. 🙁
At the same time, I am greatly blessed by an amazing family and close friends. We have surrounded him for the past week and showered him with love and affection. There is no doubt that he is greatly loved and will be missed. So, for those of you who have shared your time with us and given him a beautiful send off, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. As for everyone else, I am sure I will be ready to post again later this week, and I’ve got some fun ideas to share with you soon along with lots of pictures for a fun party. Stay tuned.
Until next time~
