Saying Goodbye

Two days ago we got the news that our second son was flying back from Perth To Sydney. To join a Ship. Leaving today, no idea for how long, no idea where and no idea when he will get back. Saying Goodbye is never ever easy for anyone, its harder when you don’t know any details or know when he will be back.

We had one hour will him last night. One hour to sit down next to him in a Pub, have a meal, few non-alcoholic drinks, lots of hugs and lots of laughter.

It was the best One Hour of our life!!!

Besides the day you were born of course.

And its also the best news for him…he is out to sea doing his job that he has been training for so very long, he is beyond excited to be back on this side of Australia – he is closer to family and really needs his family at the moment.

Saying Goodbye

SO GOOD TO GIVE YOU LOTS OF HUGS

Got the text very early this morning saying Goodbye, and that he doesn’t know when he can contact us again. So I wished him well, wished him lots of love and to stay VERY SAFE. Cause he has to come home, when that will be is anyone’s guess.

So we will be doing this all over again next week when our oldest son also goes….that means both boys are not going to be home for the most important time of the year, but hey we can celebrate the day when they do get back!

Its easier this time around cause I know what to expect and I know that the time will fly by, yet at the same time its still moments of tears.

We got to give him his Birthday Gift – he will be out there on his 19th Birthday.

We got to give him a mini Photo Album of his family so that he can look at pics of his brothers when he needs lots of TLC.

And yes I will cry when I want to!

Please Don’t Tell Me The Following ::

“Its okay he is not in the front line with the army so he is not in any danger” – BULLSHIT. If he is not in any danger why the hell do they wear bullet proof vest and carry guns then??? Why the hell do they send them to re-fresher courses on how to handle hostage situations???

“Its there Job, you have to accept them going” – BULLSHIT – its there chosen career, to step out there and protect their country for you and for the following generations but I DO NOT HAVE TO ACCEPT it and like it. I do support them. I am proud of them and I do LOVE them.

“There is no need to cry, they will be fine” – Well you are not in my shoes so if I don’t tell you how to feel, how about you do the same for me!!! I will cry cause they are my sons and they out there fighting for our protection. They are putting their lives out there so that they can follow their true calling. I might not agree with their causes, I might not agree with the way our worlds are run on violence but I agree to be their Mum.

AND NO our other sons will not be doing any of the forces because my Mama Heart couldn’t handle any more Saying Goodbyes at the drop of a hat!

AND yes I am very proud of my sons, but I am also proud of all of them no matter what they do in life.

Our 15 year old couldn’t make it up to Sydney with us……

Something I am trying to understand and accept.

So yes I am sitting here today, thinking of my second son, sending him lots of love and support….cause that’s all I can do until he gets home again and I can hug him tightly.

Our oldest son is soon to go – his girlfriend will be back here waiting for him and supporting him so it might be hard for them to be apart for such a long time but its good to know they have each other to keep each other positive over the next few months. And its that saying “The heart will grow fonder apart” keeps coming to mind. It will also make their relationship stronger then ever.
