When my oldest son Timothy decided what to do when he graduates this year I did not expect he would ever say "I am joing the Army" I was shocked. Then I cried for days. I am proud of him for finally deciding what to do with his life but I am so scared for him at the same time. Not to mention that he will be far away from home. I never wanted my children to ever move away. I will worry so much for him and miss him. I just can't stand the thought of him going away. I have put his life in Gods hands and pray he will watch over him for me but it still doesn't help the emptinesss I will have when he is no longer here at home with me. Is this normal? Is this the feeling of letting go of your children? Gosh it just hurts to the soul!
