Ever been there?
So the light of my heart goes to boot camp in 8 very short days.
I was fine. Really I was.
Okay, I was a little envious- all the possibilities that have opened up for him. What excitement and adventure lies before him, I wonder? Will he love the challenge as much as I think he will?
Hoping the knocks he's about to receive aren't too tough on him. Hoping he learns with grace and hunger.
A little scared, too. He's a big boy and can take care of himself, but I'm nervous about those guns. Yeah, I know, better he learn in the Marines than elsewhere, right? Let's not even start about Iraq, or other peace missions, war, skirmish or whatever the right term is. It's not that I feel like we don't need guns, or soldiers, but, I have a well deserved fear of guns.
So I'm wondering:
How will I feel when I don't see him every day?? Hear his voice, hug him, touch his arm, laugh at something funny he said, listen to music with him, get his opinion on a new song or book or movie?
