Adjusting to a New Season of Life
Well, tomorrow will make 10 days since my son left for basic training. I've been able to talk to him on the phone once & received one letter from him. It is really hard to get used to this. I know that he's in God's hands, and I have peace in that knowledge; however, I just MISS him! It is so hard to walk past his room. It is so empty...so quiet...so neat...so much a reminder that my little boy is now a man and that life is changing so much for us. I must make a confession now: I turned the TV on in his room tonight & left it on just so there would be some activity in there. I know that I have to let him go, but it is really hard to do. I'm a mom, you know! Plus, he is my oldest, so I'm new at this whole "when your kids are grown" thing. I'm just counting down the days until his graduation. I am so proud of him and can't wait to see him again!
