My son has been gone for 1 week today. The time really has gone fast. I write to him everyday and I try to update him on as many things as possible. His friends I’ve seen. His dogs. Me and my work. The family. The weather. Football scores. I write a Bible verse either at the beginning or end of every single letter. I printed some pictures today, including one of his great grandfather who was a chef in the Navy during WWII, wearing his Blues. My son looks so much like him! Keeping my head up. Letting myself feel the feelings as they come. Trying to wait patiently for the form letter so I can mail these, and so I will know his PIR info. Thanks to all who share positive messages and offer assistance to us newbies. I appreciate you all!
