Our son/brother left for boot camp at Great Lakes yesterday 4-18. We are all just so overcome with emotion but we feel sort of numb at the same time. Everything is different, not necessarily bad or good...just different. Morning routines don't consist of picking up the cereal bowl from his room, ALL of the towels aren't on his floor, I don't hear video game machine guns at all hours of the night...it's different. Our youngest daughter couldn't get ahold of daddy today so she instinctively called bubby. The dogs hear a sound and run to the door to see if it's Christian. One day at a time as we adjust to the new normal. Prayers for all of you adjusting as well!
