Auf Wiedersehen

I won't say goodbye.  And I won't say I am completely happy about this.  What mother wants her boy to go?  Not this one.  I'm happy to see them progress and grow, but my mother-heart wants to keep them close and love them here.

Alec and Ben just before Alec left for basic training.  What great boys!

But I got my first letter from Alec in basic training.  It did me good to hear from him.  He says send stamps.  Yessir.  And I'm ok with the situation now.  It's not like I can do anything about it.  I worried and worried until I couldn't sleep.  That is a terrible way to live.  So I got a blessing and prayed a lot, and the Lord soothed my poor stressed-out heart.  I can be happy again.  Love my boys!
