It's So Nice To Hear Your First Borns Voice

Well we heard from Ben today. Usually he is able to call in the evening on Sunday. Today it was earlier. Just to hear your "childs" voice is a comfort when they are far away and much time has passed since you've seen them.

18 year old & his brother Ben

I'm always grateful to know how he is doing, feeling, etc... He seems to have some idea where he might be going after bootcamp. I guess it could change. Like my mom always said, We shall see.

On another note, I ran into an old friend today. I was on my way home and took a street I rarely ever take. She was walking her dog.

There has been time and distance in our relationship for awhile now. But seeing her today, talking a bit, laughing a lot, it was... comfortable, relaxed, familiar. I realized that she is still her and I am still me. And that is good. So very good.

Oh that's great my friend! I'm so glad you get to talk to him weekly. I hope that makes it a little easier.

I haven't been by in a while and realized I was missing you. Hope you are doing well. Take care my friend!
