I wasn’t particularly happy when my son came house & told myself and others that he was going to join the military, and to be honest, I wanted him to have a task in an office; I did not want my baby to ever work a difficult day in his life.
He chose the military as his profession & I did not understand his decision.
I tried to persuade him to change his mind, however ultimately I gave up & let him choose a future that he wanted. He moved around a lot for the first couple of years & then he settled down in a small town about 2 minutes West of Denver. I decided to go to Denver last year to stay for two weeks. I stayed with a friend that lives in a retirement community in Denver, and my son wanted myself and others to stay with him, however I wanted to be in the town with my friends. I guess my son understood. He came to visit several times during Denver. My son was honestly surprised when he found out that I was using recreational marijuana products. It’s not as if it was a secret, however it was information that I had not previously shared with my son. I did not want him to have ill feelings towards myself and others & I did not suppose his opinion on recreational marijuana, and we had a honestly frank & tolerable discussion during town & the two of us have a better relationship now than every one of us ever did in the past.
