It was a bit of a tough day, Shane left to go back to Fort Bragg. I wonder what he will be able to do given the status of his back. He is not happy with the Army and I can't blame him. He is really smart and motivated, and it seems like a waste of talent to have him in a reserve unit that spends most of its time working in the motor pool. But then that is the army, nothing makes sense sometimes. Shane had a good visit and rested his back which will hopefully mean a complete recovery of his broken back.
Our exchange daughter Stefani's sister arrived today from Bolivia. George and Barbara came over for dinner and it was a good time. It is amazing how good you can feel when you spend time laughing and not frowning. We all need to laugh and smile more. Too much time is spent frowning and worrying about one thing or another. I know I am working on a new attitude and i feel pretty good. It is not easy because some times the weight of the world seems overwhelming. But it is nothing compared to what Zach is going through. One day at a time - one day closer to Zach being home safe and sound.
Keep smiling Zach and know that we all love you. You are superman and I miss you so much.
