I check my email and face book page multiple times a day. I feel disappointment when there is no activity, but it makes my day when someone has posted. I look forward to whatever someone has wrote no matter what the subject is. Anything makes me feel that much closer to my SR! I just want to take this time to say thank you to everyone for their sharing, you have made my transition into being a Navy mom much easier :-)

I didn't get a letter this week, but that's ok. I figure no news is good news. We are on the down hill slide with BC. When my SR left I thought it would take forever to feel this way. I can't wait to leave for PIR, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, I hope my SR (and yours) can too. Go 02/903!!

I enjoyed the letter I received today. My SR wrote 4 different days on it before he mailed it so I could really see his mood improve! He wrote that he had received my mail and that it was great to get. I still miss him alot, but it helps to see his little hand writing.

Shoveling snow has never been a favorite activity of mine, so when my son was old enough and interested enough to go out and help dad I was more than happy to let him. Now with him off to do his own thing I am back out there. Yesterday I was helping my husband with the first snow fall of the year and we were both missing our son big time for two totally different but similar reasons. I, for having this chore back and my husband for having to put up with my way of shoveling (he and our son had a… Continue

My husband's cell phone rang about an hour ago with a number that he didn't recognized and he almost didn't answer it, but then he did! I looked at him funny until he said "hi buddy", then I started crying because I knew it was our son. My husband said to my son that he better hand the phone over to me first. I was trying to not cry because I wanted it to be a very positive call. I just started asking my son questions so he could talk and I could get better under control. It was great to… Continue

My mother-in-law called my husband today to ask if we had received a letter from our son. No letter here, but she told him she got one today. She also told him not to tell me because she was worried I would get upset that she got one first. He told me anyway lol. I am not upset, I know our mail is slower than the lower 48. I am really glad she got a letter! Now I know he is ok! Waiting for mine...............:-)

I have never been one to write letters or send cards for Birthdays or other special occasions, usually I just make a phone call, but I want to make sure that my son has something as often as possible so I spent 45 minutes at the grocery store today picking out 8 cards. It was great and positive for me because I had lots of laughs just looking at the cards (I'm sure I freaked a few fellow shoppers out). I ended up picking cards that mostly were blank inside with silly pictures of animals on the… Continue

I am living in a whole new world with my son being gone to bootcamp. He is such an energy and fills a room when he is in it that now that he is gone the house feels so empty. My husband is a very quite man and I find myself looking at him and waiting for Charlie's voice to come out of his mouth :-).Even though I enjoy being just me again after 18 years, I do miss being mom and all that meant. I know that my son is at the right place right now, but I just miss hearing his voice. I check the… Continue
