3. I'll miss the big bag of laundry to wash before he leaves again.
4. I'll miss him asking for leftsa.
5. I'll miss his teasing and mischief smile.
6. Ill miss him laying stretched out on the floor in front of the TV.
7. I'll miss him at the diner table telling me he is stuffed after I've asked him for the 5th time what else he wants to eat.
8. I'll miss the stories he shares about his skiing and rock climbing.
9. I'll miss reminiscing about what he was like as a little boy.
10. I'll miss his rare surprise kisses on the cheek.
11. I'll miss the sound of his footsteps on the stairs.

I am grateful for the time I have had with him and that he is healthy in mind and body to pursue what he enjoys in life.

I know you'll miss him, but this was a wonderful tribute to him. Next time you talk to him, tell him I said Thank-you for his service to our country.

Happy TT.

I'm sorry that your son is away from you this holiday season. I will keep a good thought for him that he remains safe and will join you next year.

OMG, that's so cute! I almost started crying when I read this and it made me laugh at the same time! Thanks for that.
We have something in common cuz I miss you son almost as much as you miss him!
