I see you recently joined the Moms of Daughters 2 group and I want to welcome you!!! We are a friendly caring group of moms and are always willing to listen, share and help each other whenever or wherever we can. Please feel free to join our chats, we love talking about everything from work, family, weather - whatever. Plus the joyful and anxiety filled journey of being a Navy Mom!!! Let us support you when you're missing her, lend an ear when you need to vent, and celebrate with you when you want to brag!! You mentioned about her leaving for Japan and how difficult it will be for you. You are not alone here - we do understand. How lucky you've been to be close to her all this time, I just got back from a nice two week visit with one of my sailor girls. But it is still hard when it comes time to say goodby. The best thing we can do for ourselves is acknowledge our feelings and let them out when we can. And stay in touch with the moms on here because it's good to know we are not alone and we're not the only ones that feel the way we do. Let us help you when you're struggling - we look forward to learning about you and your sailor!!! Again, Welcome Aboard!!
