I understand you found my little blog.
It must be strange for you to read everything I’ve been thinking and feeling since you left for the military academy. And at 16, you can’t possibly understand the words I write, but I’m hopeful that you can read between the lines and hear how much I miss you and love you.
Sometimes it feels like we’re from two different planets revolving in the same crazy universe – and we’re speaking two different languages. Neither one of us “gets” the other. But there is a significant difference between our shared misunderstandings. And it’s a difference you can’t ignore – I’ve had more years in this universe. My eyes have seen more, my heart has felt more, and my brain has learned more. It’s as simple as that, and I still need to protect you.
