The Future

14 Mar

It is the eve of my departure here at Craig and I have this nervousness about the future. I wish I knew that everything is going to turn out alright when I leave here. I wish I knew what is going to happen over the next few days and months. But I can’t. I just have to live them and enjoy everyday for what it is. Living everyday for what it is something we struggle to do. All of us are trained to look ahead and plan for the future. Growing up we were not taught to the concept of living today for today. I guess what I am saying to with the change in my life I want to know everything is going to turn out as well as I hope and that I can live again on my own. I wish I could explain the nervousness of the future for me but I can’t. I am hope all of you can join me as I take my next steps in life. I am sure I will be an interesting journey.

Erika comes tomorrow. I am sure all of you know I am going to say next and I am going to say it anyway. I am really excited to see her. It has been a long time…too long. We are going to get packed up and head back to Tempe on Friday and start living life together again. It is our 2nd year anniversary on Saturday and we are going to go out and have FUN.

Tomorrow is also my last game day. I always enjoyed game day. Game day was always a break from the challenges from this place. It was a brief time we can just have fun. I am looking forward to game day. I have missed too many by being down on bed rest.

Well I think I am off to bed to watch Lost. It should be good.

I also want to say….it is good to be back. Thanks for all your support while I was down. It kept me going through the long days.

Have a good Thursday,

    Good luck – not that you’ll need it. You’ve got everything going for you – especially both of your positive, can-do attitudes.

    Joel, We will miss you here in Colorado. We are very happy to see you get on with your new life. There will be a lot of interesting challenges. Take it slow and easy. Be Patient! I know it’s hard when your young and have lots of energy. But take your time! You will conquer the world and all it has to offer. Take – One day at a time! Now that I have offered my opinion – remember that us old dinosaurs have experienced a lot in our lives and really are not as dumb as we look. Call us if you need us. We will be there in a flash. Same goes for Erika. Take good care of each other. Congratulations 2 years! Amazing! Lots of Love

    All of life’s new adventures are frightening. I just graduated from UT with my Bachelors in Nursing….now I have to take care of sick people!!!! I’m nervous too. I think both of us will be just dandy. I have always found that there is a very fine line between the emotions of nervousness and excitement and some times it is hard to tell which is which…..
    Say hello to Erika… and Happy Anniversary to the both of you.
    God Bless.
