you are welcome, I want other moms to know you are not alone, these things you are going thru are perfectly normal. :-)
week 3! Almost halfway there! Congrats and Welcome aboard, it's a topsey turvey roller coaster but in the end worth it. You did a fine job and handed over the US Navy a perfect sailor.
30 minutes from Great Lakes thats fantastic! I'm pretty sure at this point you never get over it, the separation just gets easier to handle. I still miss my son daily (I text him to tell him so!) lol After basic the lines of communication have been wide open although i have to wait til he is done with class (Yes i have my alarm set to his "A" school end of day) :-) "A" school and the ability to talk to him has made me happier, but i will be most happiest when I get to throw my arms around him and hug him again Congrats and Good Luck to your SR!
Thank you! What is your sailor going to A school for?
First let me congratulate you on your SR, and for being the loving caring and supportive mom you are! I highly suggest the Navy Lodge for PIR stay and if they don't have openings Call daily (they always open up) YOU CAN DO THIS! At PIR you will be so happy but still feel a bit contained by the "warden" that is guarding your bleechers. No worries the warden gives way once they call Liberty and It takes little or NO time for you and your now Sailor to find each other, TRUST ME! Those PIR hugs are some of the strongest and best hugs you have ever gotten,
You are very welcome. I hoped that in writing it that i could let other moms, know that what they wee going thru is perfectly normal and NO YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Congrats on your SR!!! :-D you have every reason in the world to be proud and happy, and sad, and well I'm sue you are somewhat adjusted to this never ending roller coaster. Welcome aboard!
