My day and a letter from my Boy!

I had three very special young people over today. One was my grandson Ethan and the other two were a dear friend of mines son's. Dominic (4) and Christian (2) I picked them all up after I dropped Bo off at the bus stop today. We did many special things today! We made cookies, watched Jungle book, played outside, and ate lunch together. I had all of them for three fun hours! I only worked one job today so I could get home in time to pick Bo up from soccer. I did pick Ethan back up after my route so he could spend the night tonight.

As I write all of this, my husband comes to my mind! How blessed I am to have a man that works hard so I can be at home in the mornings and get my grandchildren and adopted grandchildren. I can take time off of work and not have to worry if our bills will be paid. I have a husband that is willing to work two jobs and never complain so I can do the things I love to do so much. God has blessed me with a loving, sweet, kind husband. He has blessed me with a man that is always building me up not tearing me down. What more could I ask for in a man? I am very happy with the one the Lord has blessed me with. I am a very happy and blessed woman.

I have been watching the mail every day for another letter from Aaron. I finally received one today. Made me about cry again!

This is what he wrote:

Hey Everyone,

How's everyone doing? Doing fine here. It gets hard at times because people never shut up. We have IT'd 4 times a day and were not even on 1-1 day of training yet. Food is really good. Marching is kind of fun at times. I am one of the only ones who can make their bunks in the time limit, 12 mins, and not get in trouble. Well, I'm out of time so I love you all and I'll see you in 2 months.

I believe Grad is near October 30.

See Ya later,

Aaron

P.S. Say Hi to Jake and ALL. (Neighbor kids and all his friend's)

It wasn't much and I didn't understand half of it, but it sure helps me as a mom to get through this time, just knowing he is alright. Two months seems like such a long time.

Linda,

I live for those letters right now. I will be a basket case by the time my last one leaves the nest.

Amel's realms,

Thank you! I have a wonderful family. I love getting news from Aaron.

Kathy,

Thank you! I know I'm not alone in how I am hurting over Aaron leaving the nest. I do know this will be good for him. I just miss him dearly.

Revee,

I did have a good day! I am very blessed that is for sure. Almost as wonderful as I feel when I read your blog.
