Time...

Never can Einstien's theory of relativety be more clearly demonstrated than at times like these. It seemed like ages waiting for the visit from my parents, then just as quickly as they arrived, they left. I'm left with an add void. It's as if there is so much I wanted to say or do and almost like nothing at all happened. The time since Saturday morning has been some of the best days I've spent here in El Paso and now it's gone. I escorted them to their plane, even as far as the gate, then got in my car to watch their plane fly overhead. Unfortunately, as it often does, the wind changed directions and their plane took off away from me; I never even got to see it leave. I know no matter how far away I get the wonder of the internet will keep us together. I will even have access while deployed and am hoping to be able to use a web cam to stay in touch. Somehow, somehow it's just not the same. I'm so glad they got to come down for a visit, I so wish I could see all my family and friends one last time before I leave, it just wasn't ment to be this time. I know if/when I deploy again I am going to plan ahead enough to make sure we can afford to go home for a visit. It's just too bad I didn't have what we needed to go this time.

It's difficult to comment on what you have written except to say that I was so glad to be there in El Paso with you and Diana and the little ones -- and the time went too fast -- and now there is all of this distance between us again. Sadness doesn't describe it, aching gets a bit closer ...

Praying daily for all of you with much love ...

Jesse,

Something happened to the map you sent me (probably something I did on my end). Please resend it.

Mom:
I think you said what I was feeling. The words are just hard to find sometimes.

Don:
Go here, http://www.blissmwr.com/MAP_FortBliss.pdf but I'll re-send it again in case that link doesn't work on your end.

I know I would love to drive over to see you before you go... about how much longer is that anyway? I wish I knew how to do it so that I'm not in your way at all.

Sis,

Call (915) 694-5203 it's my moble number down here. We'd love to have you ANY time. All I can say about when I leave is it's the 3rd week of this month, I honestly don't know more than that. Believe me, you wouldn't be in the way. Let me know how you'd be coming etc so I can arrange to get you on post. CALL, it's the best way to contact me.
