Really sad...

 My baby sister who is 18 is in a hotel tonight. She leaves in the morning for Navy boot camp. I didn't get to say good bye. I was told she wouldn't be leaving for the hotel until the morning. I helped raise her as she is 12 years younger than I am. I remember braiding and putting bows in her hair on her first day of preschool. I can't believe how fast the time flies. I am so proud of her. She decided to join because our parents couldn't afford college. So, she made the decision to join so she can get her college education. I'm still so sad and missing her already.

 I don't know if I'll be able to attend her graduation which makes me even more sad. I'll be to pregnant to fly. She better write me or I'll kick her navy butt.

 I'm crazy proud of the smart, funny and loving woman she has become. The Navy is lucky to have her.

 Thank you! There was no way I could have left to be apart of our amazing military. She's definitely a very strong and independent woman.

Aw! Im sure she will do great in the navy. My brothers also missed my bootcamp graduation and i missed their high school grad because i was in bootcamp but being away from them for so long made us extremely close after i got out.
