Because that is the one day of the week that I recieve letters from my Man!! I got his letters today and as always he puts a smile on my face, It has really been hard since he left over a month ago ( six weeks ago to be exact). He is doing really well, he was given a leadership position( Platoon Leader) He is such a hardworking person. He has been getting a little bit frusterated with the other people in his platoon, apparently there are a lot of people who have a hard time following orders. If you know Adam he is a perfectionist, he manages to keep his quarters ship shape just the way the Drill Seargents like it, a lot of the other people however, don't really care, he has been having a hard time trying to get them motivated to follow instructions, but so far he hasn't had much luck. He finally got to go into the Gass Chamber which he said was awsome, I am not quite sure I understand the excitement there? He has his gun which he has named Brooklin and he takes very good care of it, and cleans it regulary. I finally got to hear from Adam this past saturday, he was only given 5 min to talk but a whole minute of that time was wasted on trying to call my phone, now I know to keep it with me everywhere I go. I found out that there is a website that has pictures of him and his platoon, I was so excited to finally see him. I miss him sooo much these past weeks have really been hard, I feel like a peice of me is missing. I knew it would be hard but I didn't know that it would be like this. The time that we have been apart has really helped me to reflect a lot. I know that he is growing in many ways and is learning great leadership skills, and I am learning to be more self sufficient. I really can appreciate more of what single parents have to go through, it is not easy!
