    Unhappy my wonderful son Alex

    My son Alex is 23 years old and oh my goodness do I love that boy!!! He will be leaving next month for the Marines, eek boot camp! but he is really looking forward to going ... I just have to take a moment to brag about him (hope you all don't mind) He will going Special Forces in the Marines but he leaves next month though they haven't given the exact day they have told him November the last date mentioned was the 23rd ... which means I will miss him for his 24th birthday on December 8th and for Christmas, New Years ... this first year is going to be a challenge for sure!!! Will be the very first Birthday & Christmas without him since he was born.

    Anyways on to the bragging part LOL I wanted to show a couple pictures of him with his dog Ally (the one who will appear in pictures with Diesel & Molly, as she always tries to find a way to be a part of the picture)

    I think poor Ally will be as lost without him as I will

    What a handsome boy and you have every right to brag as you say.. I am sure you will miss him something awful as I miss my son so far away in college, but we want our children to follow their dreams so we have to be there and encourage them even though it means our hearts will hurt for missing them. Thank him from all of us for taking on the ever so difficult task of keeping our country safe. May he be happy, safe and healthy as he pursues his dreams.
    Ally will miss him too but she has his very proud mom to continue giving the love she is used to.

    I couldn't imagine what you are going through. I am very fortunate to have both boys close to me.

    Great photos, my best to his future.

    Always with me

    You can brag all you want, as he is a handsome young man, and I think you are right as Ally will be missing him. Please tell him thank you so much for his service and may God bless him.

    @Dubbiedog - you are so right I have always supported his decisions even if I wasn't convinced it was the best thing .. in life we have to make our own choices and suffer our own set backs so to speak that's how we learn so I've stood by his side cheering him on no matter what it was he was doing!

    @Bella'sMom - he is my only child but I've known this day was coming for a very long time, he has always said he was going into the Military

    @Davidh - thank you I will tell him

    @wheezer - thank you I will tell him ... and oh yes I will give her as much love as I can to help her though missing him

    @JAKEISGREAT - thank you for the prayers, means a lot to me!

    @cali~jenn - I am very proud ... not just because of his going into the Military to protect all of our freedoms but because he is such an awesome person, he treats everyone so well and always looks out for those he loves!!

    and for all those who said he was handsome .... Thank you so much!! I think he is very handsome also, he is the spitNimage of my dad

    Bless your heart @bulldogs4me, I would be bragging away too!!!, it was so nice to read this thread and know that you have an awesome son, and it is hard when they leave, I have two adult sons that have left the nest, that is why Vegas happened in my life. He is my empty nester slash wedding present. I got married after being divorced 16 years and raising my sons. LOL.

    thank you, my family always says my life stopped when my son was born and it was all about Alex from that day forward so I promised him that now that he is grown and leaving for the Military that I would start living for myself and doing things just for me ... the next few months will be the hardest but I am so over the top proud of him and excited for him to be able to follow his dreams, see new places, experience new things, it will make missing him worth it ... just so he can be happy!! My bullies are what will keep me going though I can't just give up because they still need me and so does Alex's dog Ally ... 3 fur-kids that won't leave home and that will always need me to care for them that's a good thing!!

    @cowsmom - yes Ally will stay with me until he is in a long term location and can have her but thinking in realistic terms, she will get to see him when he comes home for leave but will basically just be one of my fur-babies once he leaves. thank you for the compliment, he would kick my booty if he knew I was doing this LOL and yes oh yes I will miss him more then words can express! Its just been me and him against the world for the last 23 years so now I have to figure out how to live life for me again and to make sure he knows how much I love him from a long distance!
