A Few Things That I Miss..

(Aside from the obvious family and friends... In no particular order, and not all-inclusive)

  1. Cold water. The holding tanks for the shower water are next to the bathrooms, outside. The water is heated up enough by the sun that I have not had to touch the hot water spigot in a couple months. I like my showers hot, but the 'cold' water is so hot as to be barely tolerable.
  2. A bathroom closer than 100 yards from my can.
  3. A tan. Yes I am in the desert, but I am still pasty white. I've had better tans in Wisconsin.
  4. Temperatures below 90 degrees. We now comment on 'how cool it was last night - in the low 90's. Positively refreshing'

A few more serious things...

  1. The unconditional acceptance of my dog.
  2. Sending my oldest off to his 1st day of kindergarten.
  3. Feeling our unborn baby kick and move.

I wish you didn't have to miss those things especially & most importantly those final 3 as I know you will never get them back but I want you to know that I so appreciate you & your family for what you do for us & those who are wounded over there. Thank you!
