Wow! I had no idea this was going to be so hard, Brody left for Jax yesterday, Did manage to talk to him for a bit at the hotel last night. He sounds excited and a bit nervous. Today he is swearing in and off to the airport, I hope he can manage a call some time today before the scripted call later tongiht. I miss him so much and at times I feel like I can not even breath it hurts so much. I know in my head that this is his dream and I could not be prouder of him. But my heart is very sad. I feel like I have been crying for days. Waiting for the form letter and box.
I had no idea how hard this was going to be. We took our son to the recruiters office yesterday morning. He did manage to give me a call last night from the hotel. This morning he will be officially swearing in and off to the Chicago. I know in my head this is a wonderful journey we are on . He is living his dream but my heart is so sad. I hope he gets a chance to call me while traveling today. Waiting for the scripted call tonight.
My husband and I took our son to the recruiters office this moring to send him off. We got to spend about an hour with him before the shuttle bus came to take him to Jax. I tried not to cry but needless to say that did not happen. The tears come in waves ok for a bit than it hits you like to brick wall. You cry a little than try to assume your day. This was so much harder than I had expected. Looking forward to getting the form letter so I can start sending letters.
