Will do Carole. From what you've shared with us about Michael, I know that you have every reason to be very proud of him. It's hard to send our kids off as they become adults, and I'll be praying for you too. Hang in there mom.
Prayers are going out for Michael so that he has a safe flight and an uneventful tour of duty. Thanks go to him for serving for us Carole..and He will not be alone..you are in his heart and he is with all his buddies. Peace be with you and your family while he is gone.
Prayers and best wishes to your son. You have done your best. It is up to him to do the rest.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
Carole, what a hard thing it must be to send your son off so far away, but know that you have done the best possible job in raising him. Maybe he will run into my brother-in-law's son who is over in Germany serving in the army for the past few years. His name is Christopher.
