I will continue with my son joining the Air Force and say I am being selfish. I love the military but I am having a protective Mother moment. I will get more comfortable with the process of letting our children fly away.
I know it is normal for the little ones to grow up and fly away from our nest to make their own nest. I believe it is that way with nature.
I am going through this process of letting them go, more everyday. The old saying is to let them go, and if they love you, they will return. I believe we all have to do that to some degree.
