Military life. It guarantees that you will meet more people than you ever thought possible. Love and lose more friends than you could possibly imagine.
As this summer's PCS season is upon us, I really wish that I could curl up and sleep through it. I am dealing with my own sadness of friends leaving but still need to support the kids who are losing friends.
I can honestly say that I have been ok until Kymber came to me yesterday with pen & paper. She asked me to write a note to her friend, Katie. It was to say "Katie, I love you even though you have to move."
So just like an upcoming deployment, I will cling to the memories made over the next few weeks and try to distance myself so that it doesn't hurt so much.
