I survived.

Lately, I've been blogging about Adasia, Gabe's friend. Well, she and her mom just came over to exchange gifts and say good-bye. I've been dreading it all day, because I figured that someone would start crying. I'm happy to announce that things went well; I think it's because the gifts were a distraction. We promised to keep in touch and tonight, while we're all sleeping, they will make the long drive to the east coast. I'm pretty sure that it will hit Gabe tomorrow, or soon thereafter, that his best playmate/classmate is gone.

On a much brighter note, tomorrow we will attend the Welcome Home ceremony for our friend Craig. Mary and Craig have been our friends since we were stationed at Campbell; they're both from South Louisiana, and they are so much like us. We're so happy that he is coming home...safe and sound. It's gonna be a good day.

It's weird how we adapt to military life. Saying hello, saying good-bye. Not knowing what life will bring in the next year or two...it can kinda get to you at times. But hey, what do you do? You keep on truckin'. After all, it's a good life and no matter what, there's always something to look forward to.

I'm sure this is just one of many changes for Gabe in the next few months. I hope he (and you) adjust well! :)

If he and Adasia were as tight as you say, he will never forget her. What a great memory for him to have. I still remember my first playmate, Chuckie Coats. We were married on a school bus at the ripe old age of 5. My oldest brother officiated the ceremony.

Send our warmest regards to Mary and Craig. I love to hear about homecomings and I'm so happy for them.
