Tracey - I wish there was a "like" button for your post. Thank you for sharing your sons journey, it truly gives hope to other parents!
Thank you! There were quite a few of you ladies that helped me through such a hard time when I thought I wouldn’t be able to keep it together. The encouragement and support you showed me helped me get through that because no one understands what we go through unless you’re a Navy mom❤️If I can help one mom get through a rough patch like you ladies helped me through it, it’s all worth it! We’re all in this together!
Where's the Love Button!! Yes, This journey is a roller coaster of Love, Pride, Love, Worry, Pride, anxiety , "See Ya Later's" and Joy!! As hard as BC is.... This is the Easy part!
Rollercoaster is the ONLY word I’ve ever been able to use to describe this journey! Lol It’s a wild ride for sure.....but so worth getting on and seeing the end result! The transformation in my son in just those 2 short months amazes me and I can’t wait to see what the rest of his journey has in store for him!
Tracey...I echo everything! PIR was well worth it! My son is a stronger more independent young man now. I understand the reasoning behind the silence but not looking forward to that again when he is deployed in the future. Thankfully we have a lot of schooling left before "I" have to remember silence is good news.
I’m not looking forward to that either, but at least we’ll be a little stronger and more capable of handling it a little better now that we know what to expect. The not knowing anything when they’re in boot camp is the worst. At least with A School and deployments, there’s SOME kind of communication! Lol
Did you get your letter today? I got mine. She went in on the 8th. I miss her sooooo much. I also reminded myself no news is good news. It is so hard.
