Monday started WOT 1. I haven't received any calls or letters from my son. I understand this is a priviledge that they must earn. They even have to earn the priviledge of READING the letters they receive. This is all to get them ready for their new life. I didn't understand how my life would change as his changes. I know he is becoming stronger, more independent and self assured. As his mom, I am SO not used to not being able to see, hear and touch him! This has been the biggest…Continue
boy was that tough! He called and we got to hear his voice, but other than "I love you" and " be strong", I didn't get to actually talk to him. He started out really strong, but by the end, his voice was wavering. I managed not to cry while he was on the phone. I want to be as strong as he is and must continue to be to get through this. I pray for him every single day. I know he will succeed. I look forward to meeting the man he will become! I am SO PROUD to be his mom!
Well, we are on day two of Zero Week. We haven't heard from our Airman yet. I can't wait for that first phone call, just to know he is safe. I have already begun writing letters! I want to be as supportive as possible. He has never been away from home before. This is a huge adjustment. I am SO PROUD to be his mom!
