Dammit Ryan, I had logged off ATS, changed my password, and planned on taking the summer off from posting, but I was still checking for my headlines
and news, because I just don't like nor trust the MSM, so I can't give ATS up completely.
Then, I see this headline over to the right, and it intrigued me. I had to read it, and after reading it, I absolutely had to recover my password
just to star and flag this thread and see to it that it makes the front page.
Very moving. I'm at work, in my office, with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes. I am a bit of a Momma's boy myself, and I live several
states away from her now, and every time we visit she just hugs me and won't let go. She has stood in the doorway and watched me shave even now that
I'm almost 40 years old! She gets upset if she doesn't hear from me almost every day. I hope she is a around for a very long time, but I know she
won't be here forever. It is hard growing up, and I have regrets. I used to believe I didn't have any, but I do. My Mom is 1000 miles away at the
moment, and all I can think about is hugging her and telling her what a great job she did, and how much I appreciate everything she has ever done.
I have a 4 year old and a 5 year old at home, and they are so precious, but if they spend one night away from me they come back noticeably more
mature. They change day by day, and I know they won't be my little ones for very long.
Dammit. This is awfully emotional for a Monday afternoon. I don't know why your words struck all of us the way they did, but that is some fine
writing, and some dam fine words you put together. Thank you, thank you, thank you x1000. We needed to hear this....... at least I did.
