Please don't get me wrong. I am SO very proud of what he is doing!! BUT he is still my baby and will always be my baby. It is so hard seeing him leave and not knowing when I will see him again. Fortunately, he is able to get Christmas off this year. So our Christmas is going to be a lot better than last's year. Last year he was in Boot Camp and we had no contact with him at all on Christmas Day.
I guess this is just part of being a military family. We are one of the lucky ones that got to spend the holiday with our sailor and I am SO very grateful for that.
So, if sometime during your holiday rush, if you can take time and say a prayer for our military and their family, I would really appreciate it. They really could use it!
