Signing Off

15 Mar

Well, my journey here at Craig has come to a close. By the time you have read this I will be on my way home to Arizona. I don’t know what to expect. But what I do know is that every 24 hours the sun rises again and we all have to get out of bed and live the day. Tomorrow the sun will rise and I will have to live the day.

Erika arrived today and I couldn’t be happier. We went to dinner and had a great time.

I appreciate everyone who came to visit me while I was here at Craig. I wish I had to the words to fully show my appreciation for your support.

I guess this is it. Signing of from Craig. More adventures are on my horizon.

    Dear Joel,

    Every day is a new adventure, and when the sun rises on the morrow, greet it with anticipation. Believe in yourself and know that whatever you set your mind to do, you can accomplish through creativity and fortitude. When those moments of frustration come, remember all of your family and friends who support you through love and prayers.

    Vaya con Dios, for sure. With God nothing is impossible.


    PS Congratulations to you and Erika on your anniversay!

    I can’t imagine how you feel, but I know you will get through it.
    I hope you will continue to blog as faithfully as you have been there at Craig. What will everyone do without your words of wisdom and insight? Congrats on your 2 years with Erika, I can’t remember that far back. Please take good care of yourself in AZ.

    Love you,
