He is in the SECF program, so he has great things ahead of him for his future...The military is a brand-new chapter & experience in our lives, with the exception of our son-in-law.I must admit, I'm a bit uneasy with the whole military idea in general, but the more confidence I hear in his voice, the better I feel. I am a worrier at heart, always have been, so it is difficult for me. I support them & love all of my children more than anything in the world. I pray daily for their safety, happiness, & success in all they do. They have many opportunities ahead of them, each specific to them, but non the less very exciting to watch in excitement as they experience all that awaits them, see them grow, become stronger, more confident people, but most of all I pray they find love & all that makes them happy. My biggest wish for all my children is for them to find true joy & happiness. So while they go places, experience adventures & opportunities galore, somewhere within the journey their lives take them, I know along the way they will find everything they need & all the happiness & love they deserve plus more....
