It snowed yesterday morning, but I was just as glad it mostly melted off as the day got sunny later. This morning they had snow/rain mix in the forecast, but it held off. I was grateful, because this was the morning my son flew off to his next training mission. My daughter in law is a Southern gal, so I was glad the roads were dry for her driving.
I can say this departure is to his training mission, but in fact, I won't see him again for about fourteen months. So this was my last shot at a mom-ly hug and to give him those words of trust and love in person, that I'm proud of him and that I'll try my best to see his wife's OK in his absence.
This is one of the reasons I wanted that surgery (parathyroid, for those of you who asked) over with and myself well on the way to recovery now. One less thing for him to worry over.
And one more reason for me to continue to take good care of me. Daughter in law and I need to take care of each other, and to do that, we each have to take care of ourselves.
