Sad Day

On January 2, my eldest son Duncan left for the Army National Guard.

I can tell you this, I was prepared to say bon voyage to my son.

It’s part of him growing up and becoming a man.

What I was unprepared for was the silence.

I don’t get to hear from him every day.

His life is changing in leaps and bounds and I’m not there for it.

And that makes me sad.

The good news is, he has a pal with him at boot camp:

So at least he has some support for what he’s going through.

Still, I miss my son and I really wish I could be a part of the changes he’s going through right now.

I took a picture of him optimistically headed for the bus, ready to commit to serving his country:

There’s no denying it.

I am ONE SAD MOMMA.
