Blue turned twenty today! We sent cookies, a little money and a promise to celebrate more when he comes home in two weeks. There were texts and a quick phone call after the official time (3:13 pm) between all of his comings and goings with friends.
And this evening I'm home alone, stitching, missing him, and remembering how on that first night we took him outside to show him the moon. And how I couldn't believe he was real.
