As many of you know, my baby boy left for basic training 9 days ago. :( My husband's been in the US Army for the past 17yrs, and through 3 deployments, this is an entirely different feeling for me, I guess because now I'm mom going through it. I know I have to put my selfish pity aside and be happy that he's following his dreams and making a future for himself and his future family. 

 I just wanted to share a card I made for him. His 19th birthday is tomorrow, and I know this won't arrive in time, but wanted him to know how much I was thinking about him and missing him and MOST of all how PROUD I am of him and the young man he's becoming!!
Love you Christopher!!
