We have been receiving letters from our Soldier Boy! He is entering his 4th week of Basic Training and we now have an address where we can send him letters. We also may send care packages as long as they contain only approved items...they are not very exciting, just hygiene and writing items, but it is so nice to be able to connect with our boy.
We received a 25 minute phone call on Monday...we had not heard from him, by phone, since the end of May. You can be sure that we were smiling ear to ear and I did shed a tear or two after we hung up the telephone.
I have set up a little "Post Office" downstairs in my craft room so that I have all the supplies needed to send out letters and packages. I am trying to have mail go out every other day so that he is hearing from home consistently.
I would love to hear from any of my lovely Readers that have had a loved one serve in the Military, especially one of their sons or daughters. This is a whole new experience for me and I feel a little lost at times.
