Default Lord help me

My son has been dropped off at the hotel so he can ship out to Fort Sill, Oklahoma for Army boot camp tomorrow
His momma, his sisters and his significant other have began the crying and sobbing process. I cant stand seeing my girls cry

You lost your lawnmower and I lost my weed eater. At least you and I verbally prepared him to withstand any harsh talk he may encounter.
Proud of that kid, I mean young man.

It's OK for us Dads to cry as well. We just do it differently. Congrats on raising a great young man. May he have an amazing life and tackles the goals he sets forth.

Women and girls can be quite the emotional creatures. I usually take leave until the flood subsides. They will dry up eventually. Life has its pivotal points. Mine was when the last child left home to begin life as an adult. At first, I really felt an emptiness. My wife and I drew closer together and discussed where to go from here. It was the beginning of one of the best chapters of our life together.
