My wife is sad that one of her sons is now in Korea. Shel's Place: Tim He left Mother's Day Weekend. They are always on her mind and they know she's always there for them. She has been their constant rock as they've grown up through a difficult divorce, never putting them in the middle.
I've learned much from her, probably most importantly that their frustrations that are seemingly directed at you are simply there result of the situation. She took some difficult jabs from them but always knew it was directed at her because she was safe and cared, not because it was her fault.
