You know what? It's hard to not hear from your child for 3 weeks. In this day and age of digital communication--email, cell phones, texts--going 3 weeks with only a government issued form letter isn't fun. Hopefully, Brent will send a letter soon. Even a short one. It would sure make my Christmas bright!
Through this, I've learned quite a lesson: keep in touch with those you love!! Is there someone who would love to hear from you? Pick up the phone, or a pen and paper, and tell them hello. You'll put a smile on their face. And if it's your mother, shame on you!! :) Make sure to let her know she's appreciated this Christmas season. There are no sweeter words.
