Just Great

We're saying goodbye to #2 son tomorrow afternoon.
I had left a voicemail for my daughter-in-law this weekend just to check in since I hadn't heard from her or my #1 son (her husband). I e-mailed her this morning to make sure everything was ok; she e-mailed back that she had been at a soldier's funeral Saturday. Just great.

I sincerely wish I had something, some magic wand or potion, to make this easier for you. I read Jan's post over at Standing By. I hope that post gives you some more traffic and sets you up with parents who are going through these same painful emotions. (Maybe you could start a spouse buzz-like site for parents?)

Thank you for sharing your pain so publicly. I think it really helps me understand what you are going through a little bit more. Please keep posting so I can know how you are doing. I am worried about you. And I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

I really feel your pain. My son is waiting to leave early May for the 2nd time. I'm so glas I found your blog. There is a lot of support for wives, but nothing much for mothers. Thank you for sharing and understanding.
I'll pray for your boys.

Hang in there. This week is going to go by really fast. So hold onto a few of the good things. Then... have a really good weep and remember that you are not alone. I feel for your DIL.. I'll be at one in a few days.

The spouse buzz/parent buzz could be a good idea! contact one of the coordinators at SpouseBuzz and ask... It can't hurt to ask!
