Must Have Done Something Right

Wow it sure has been a long time since I last posted anything and it is about time that I do. Well the past month has been a pretty long and a hectic one with some good things and some downfalls but overall I would give it a B+/A-. I'm back in Germany once again and this time it is for good, unless I want to take leave or something like that, and I'm glad but yet bummed about it. The good thing about it is that I can finally settle down and just get my life in order like it should have been to begin with. The only downfall is that I'm once again far away from the one's I love, and most importantly one person in particular. But all of that will change here in (according to her) 36 days when she comes and visits! It'll be Christmas in May, but I couldn't have asked for a better gift!

ASBC was fun and exciting! I met some great people that I will stay in contact for the years to come and as well as someone very special (Charlie Brown) that is very supporting of me and what I do. Work has been a lot better now that I am done with my TDYs and that I can actually settle down in Fuels. I'm currently on a rotational schedule that sends me around to the different sections of my Flight so I can understand to a certain extent what exactly it is we do in Fuels. It's going to be an awesome time learning all of this and getting some good face time with the troops, which is always good to do.

I honestly cannot wait for May, take a little leave and enjoy the company of Charlie Brown for the first time since Feb, it will be well worth the wait! As this night continues to drag on I cannot think of really anything to talk about but her. But I'll leave that for another post ;)

Souls on Ten

This weekend was by far one of the best that I have had in my life! Just being able to go home and spend my time with the people that I care about the most was all that I needed to recharge my batteries for these next couple of months. And with the added element of someone very special, who I can't wait to return to in coming months, spending their WHOLE weekend with me was much more meaningful then I had ever expected. In the end I was given a book that looks to be the most inspirational book I have read titled;Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret to the Man's Soul. It rings true to the way that I feel about my spiritual soul and the way I yearn for the excitement of the outdoors as well as the adventures that are always offered to me in my everyday life. I would like to give you a little excerpt from it...

"Adventure, with all its requisite danger and wildness, is a deeply spiritual longing written into the soul of man. The masculine heart needs a place where nothing is prefabricated, modular, nonfat, zip lock, franchised, on-line, microwavable. Where there are no deadlines, cell phones, or committee meetings. Where there is room for the soul. Where, finally, the geography around us corresponds to the geography of our heart."

After reading this passage I thought of how this puts into a deep and meaningful perspective of the way that I look at, and long for Colorado at all times. For these past couple of months, since I have moved overseas, Colorado has been the key holder of my heart for many reasons; 1) my parents live there, 2) I absolutely love doing anything and everything outdoors that CO has to offer, and now a 3rd) someone very special has been brought into my life that has been an inspiration to me. I can truly agree with the Big Man upstairs when... "but as God himself said, things were just not right until there was an Eve."
