This is one of those Army concepts that drives me insane. Danny can only write letters for about the first month he is there. He has been gone for almost three weeks and I've received 5 letters. However, the last one that I received was on Wednesday and was written last Sunday. As of that letter, he still had not received anything from me. So its this constant rush to answer questions and say what you need to say so you can get it in the mail as quickly as possible. And then you wait... Has he received it yet? Has he written back? Is he going to?
You may be wondering why I even care... Those 5 letters, Danny's first full week in Basic had him thinking that he was wrong, and that he wants to work it out. I just want the chance to try. So I'm definitely proceeding with caution. It very well could me that he is just lonely (he has never been good with the whole being alone thing). On the other side of that, he gets a 36 hour pass Nov. 25th and 26th. It will be our first Thanksgiving so part of me really wants to go. The other part of me thinks, in what capacity do you want me there. As your friend? As your wife? As the person bringing your son to visit? Waiting for these answers is driving me nuts.
I need prayers for strength and guidance... I'm definitely learning lessons in trust and patience!
