The ten days after Marine boot camp...until he leaves again.

The excitement rose when graduation was over


Finally Marine boot camp was over....he could come home for 10 days.


While he was home, I took in every ounce of what I missed about him...


The silly pranks


Playing the keyboard


Late night talks


The loving name-calling (it's a family thing)


His respect for me.....and vice versa


His amazing good looks


His generous nature


His love of family


Just the all-around love of being in his company


The ten days are over now. It's back to missing him...but this time it's not for 13 weeks. It may be for life! Only the government knows...how long my son will be gone.


 


God be with Zach! Thank you

Beautiful capture of the love a mother has for her son and the fear that goe's into the heart as war continues.
