The panic, the fear. Its back. I can already feel the knots in my stomach!

My son just called. He thought he wasnt going to have to go, but he just called, and in 2 weeks, he goes back to Afghanistan.

He will be there for 4 mos. Its only 4 mos, but its 4, LONG, MONTHS!

Last time he was single with a girlfriend. This time, he leaves a wife at home.

I know he will be fine, but I cant stop the fear. The same one that overtook me last time he went there.

I have to keep it together this time... to help support his wife. I just hope I can do it.

Where does it say that you have to keep it all together? Where? Being strong isn't about not feeling anything or not showing any emotion, being strong is about being there for your family and I think you have that one down.

You go ahead and feel whatever you want and show whatever emotion you need to.

What grizz said...


2011 - This  year is about the journey to December 31, 2011, not how soon the number on the scale satisfies me.

Hang in there Mom!

I have several friends over there. If he is with John Baldwin, Johnny wil take good care of him!
