I know i seem like im whinning, but its been almost 7 days since my son left for boot camp. the days and nights are still tough but have been getting alittle easier... I still crank my sons fav songs on the radio when im driving and sing as loud as i can like he would... try to giggle at things he n i use to do. (as our brains would shut down) Its still hard... but ive come to grips with it.
this site has helped and the support is great... any feed back is wonderful.. ive also found the parris island web site to be helpful with the matrix of what he is expected to be doing while hes there and they have it broken down in to weeks. cant wait until i get the first letter from him.. im sure im going to sob like a big blubbering idiot. ive always told him, my tears are not sadness, its my pride oozing out my eyes cuz im so full of pride it has no where else to go! he liked that when he left.. and i think it made it easier for him, knowing i wasnt sad he was leaving but proud of his disission (spellin sucks sorry)
keep sending positive energy to all thats out there, it REALLY is appreciated!
