I’m sorry I haven’t posted lately. Life has gotten a little stressful. I mean, what do you do when someone you love leaves you? No, he did not leave me exactly, he had to go on an emergency TDY. He called me that Friday morning, the morning they told him that within 72 hours he will be sent away to help with some of the world’s natural disasters. He told me how he just found out some news and his supervision said he will be gone for about two or three days, currently, now it’s going on two weeks…
I guess this is just my way of saying I have a newfound appreciation for the time and how important it is and for technology for being the tools I can use to keep contact with him. I also thank God and the people who reached out to me at church who keep him in our prayers.
He has always had this inner passion to be a hero. For him, this was his calling but was it at the wrong time? I did not want him to go. I know it is not the end of the world but some days it feels like it. I’m not going to lie sometimes I cried. Some nights its so bad I cry myself to sleep. I have been trying to keep busy, get involved in my community and such, but it’s hard. And I don’t think it will get any easier.
As some of you read earlier I was down in Miami on leave from the Air Force. Another reason that I was there was because my dad had been working on my car and it was running smoothly right up until the time I came to get it. Life is like that sometimes. I wasn’t worried about it initially but as the week passed by and my dad poured so much of his time into this car, I was worried that either we didn’t understand the immediate problem to the car of why it could not drive or the way we were tying to fix it was not working. Ever do something and it like dang it still doesn’t work ? Then somebody else comes over and for some reason the way they did it, now it works. Sometimes we need a different approach to the problem we have already identified.
When I came down to Miami on leave my first thoughts were spending time with my family and friends. I realized how much I could appreciate my families presence. I finally get it now when you don’t live with your family that’s when you finally start to miss them. (Just kidding!) Being in Miami gave me a chance to unwind. I also enjoyed being able to see a few close friends from high school. I went to the beach , ate donuts , explored a new museum, went to eat out at Duffy’s for the First time, went to Rapids water park, and celebrated some birthdays. I did a lot down in Miami but I was so busy I didn’t even get to see all of my friends but its okay because there will be other moments in time when I can do that. It seems like as I get older I am realizing you have to make the most of every situation. Everything will not always be as expected so that is why we have to make the most out of everything.
Comment below and tell me some of the things you appreciate!
