you are most Welcome! I have begun my next journey "A" School and his first PDS!
Keep your head up! you raised a great kid,and he will be just fine. we are here for you, and if you want to add me as a friend go right ahead!! . :-) your journey is just about to begin.
Thank you! You've got this lady!!! so excited for you! This road is full of glorious ups and downs, but so worth it!!!
After reading you're story, I admit I had to wipe the tears a half dozen times. I'm a blubbering mess and she hasn't even left for basic yet. I am so proud of her for what she is doing, and I never let her see me cry, but I question if i'll be able to handle this.
You will handle this fine, although everyday will feel like it is draggin on like an eternity. I'm the same way i didn't want mine to see me cry, but finally he did as i hugged his neck at the airport before he boarded his flight and the look he gave me was of surprise (my Kids very rarely ever see me cry) and a reply of "At least we can talk everyday now mom, and I'll see you sooner this time than last" It was sweet but really did nothing to stop the flow before he got on that plane to San Antonio. i still miss him, and I still cry, But most of all, I find that I am PROUD, lemme rephrase that VERY PROUD, of the man I have raised. So let me be one of the first to congratulate you on coming aboard the "Sailor Mom Boat"
Thank-You for helping. The attachment was beautiful and of course I cried.
I still have 10 months until my daughter leaves for RTC, but N4M's has been so helpful, and reading your story lets me know that I will also be able to handle it with this terrific support network! Thank you for sharing this!
10 months gets here faster than you want it too, I had anticipated and braced myself for the day, but just like bringing themi nto the world, you are never fully ready. It's a learn as you go process.You raised a wonderful daughter (it's apparent by the great choice she made to DEP in) Welcome aboard and congrats on your soon to be SR!
Thank you! She is definitely more excited about it than her Mom is! I am extremely proud but will miss her so much!
