My son is leaving in four days for a year, for his junior year in college in Frankfurt. I know I'm going to cry and he hates it when I cry, like bad hates it. I get really upset when I think about all the bad things that could happen to him, which I know probably won't. It's been pointed out to me that I should be happy he's not leaving for Iraq or Afghanistan in the military service or somewhere like that, but still I will miss him so much, even though I annoy him. He is our firstborn and was waited for and wanted for 9 long years. Any sage advice? We will probably go visit him in six months.
