Mom's always notice and I know my son. I just keep hearing that they will be different when they come home. My son has always been very structured, responsible and loved having fun. I don't here the man I'm use to hearing
I'm trying to be strong for my other boys and hubby, but I so miss my first born. We all starting to notice the little things. My son loves cereal and I stayed running to the store for milk. Now milk and cereal just sit in the pantry. All the men stay focus by working out together....but what I'm I to do. He was my alarm clock in the morning, when he came in from work he would wake me up with music. He loves music, guess this is one of those days.
So glad to here that you just finished your last treatment. My son will be going straight to A-school after graduation. I'm walking around the house holding my phone so I won't miss the call if they get one today. My son told us don't worry about coming for Christmas, just saved the money and he would see us at graduation. My husband said it was best because he didn't want him to loose focus. Have a bless time with your son and hug him even harder for all us mom's.
I'm sorry you missed you call! I would be doing the same thing-listening over and over. He sounded good! His voice sounded even deeper-probably from all the shouting-and said it was tough but overall that he's doing good. He sounded strong, and said he was going to the commmissary to get some stuff and that they would be writing letters tomorrow (Sunday).
