The above paragraph could continue infinitely, but I have a lot of loose ends to wrap up before I head to the airport so I need to stop there. I guess one realizes exactly how blessed they are when they are about to embark on a grand adventure and yet a part of them is knowing how much they will miss home. Especially Jim. And my animals. And ... okay I need to stop but you get what I mean.
A special shout out to Jim, Mom and Paul who will be taking over all of of my household responsibilities while I am away. I will worry about nothing.
And one more shout out to God for giving me the health and energy and luck to have created this life.
