Anyone who has ever been part of a military family knows that often your immediate family lives or is stationed far away.
Since I live in Massachusetts and my children and grandchildren live in Virginia, this has caused me to miss many school and family functions. Missing these memories, that will never come again, cause me great sadness.
An ideal day for me would be the day I could pack all my things and move to Virginia. It may be possible in the near future.
If you are lucky enough to live near your children and grandchildren, never take that opportunity for granted!
