As the day comes closer to my son leaving for Afghanistan it gets harder on each one of us. When I talk to my son on the phone I can tell how difficult this is on him as well. Not sure how we are going to handle him being right in the middle of this war zone. All I know is I love my son beyond words and want him to stay safe at all times.
He is coming home to visit very soon and I know we are planning this HUGE get together while he is here - enjoying every moment.
Please say a prayer to all our servicemen and women who are still protecting our country.
