How can it be so difficult to let an adult child go & do her thing? I said goodbye to my 23 year old daughter yesterday, she will be arriving at Marines boot camp in S.C. today, and will be there for 3 months. I'm both proud and terrified of what she is doing.
You'd think I could handle it, myself and my DH having been in the Air Force, and FIL as well. Somehow, though, when it's war time and it's your only daughter and it's the ground forces she's joining.....it's a different story. I know that she will never be used in combat, but that doesn't mitigate my fears that she may be shipped over there to you-know-where.
I will just have to go to work today with puffy, red eyes, and trust in the Lord. Please everyone say a prayer for our troops.
What do I do in times of stress? I knit, crochet, and buy knitting books. Have been lusting over this book for quite some time, so treated myself while shopping for Father's Day gifts. It is a beautiful resource for cable knitting, which is my passion. Hope to make the reversible cable scarf as my first project. Pics to come! (well. that almost distracted me!)
