If you are a mom of grown children, you can most likely relate.
My baby will be turning 18 next weekend and my middle, Army serving-son, will turn 21 this Saturday ... a BIG birthday to be sure, but he is ALL the WAY in KOREA!!! I will not get to hug him. Kiss him. Squeeze him. Or toast to his big day in person.
But, have no illusion, I will be thinking of him and will be toasting him from his home-town. Cheers!
The photo above is a bit of a reminder of those two younger boys. The lunch box was deftly sand-blasted by A.J. when he was just a little guy. The Monkey stamps served their purpose, stamping many letters to Kyle whilst in boot camp...."To my Middle Monkey...Love, Mom Monkey."
Good thing lots more memories are yet to be made....
ps. This post was not meant to only focus on the two younger boys...Ty, our oldest, will be 24 this year. TWENTY-FOUR!!! Now that's a BIG reality check! 24...That means, I'm.....yeah, I'm celebrating 26 years of marriage this month too! :-) CHEERS to July....
