My Son - The Marine?

Wow. My son has been talking about joining the Marines for several months now. He graduated in 2008 and is 19-years old. I knew he was serious, but somehow I needed a bit more time to process this. But, like it or not, today's the day! He is making the three-hour drive with his recruiter to sign the papers. I'm not sure what I feel, or what I'm supposed to feel...pride? fear? uncertainty? wonder? I just don't know.

Karen,
All those emotions are appropriate, but I hope pride prevails.

Now that he has actually been sworn in, it's a little too real. But yes, I am so very proud of him. I was proud of him before this too. He's a great kid. (Whoops, can I call a Marine a kid...lol)

Whatever your 19-year-old does is scarey, Karen. That's normal. Anonymous, on the other hand, probably isn't!

I visited your blog as I'm a fellow writer. Please feel free to return the visit. It would be lovely to hear from you.
