I hate this for you. Finding it hard to convey how I feel. I want to say "hang in there", but we all know that **** is for the birds. Hanging in there doesn't mean a damn thing when it comes to saying goodbye to your kids...just reading and thinking about this brings a tear. I've got two little girls, my youngest had her birthday today...I asked her to pray for you and your kids, she prayed " And God, please help my daddies friend find a happy place that is his, and his kids, and I hope he has candy, candy is good for sad people", she brought me to tears thinking about this. My oldest bowed her head over her and said "amen, may God Bless"
God speed in this recovery, I really, really hope this reboot is all it takes. We are with you.

I thought I should update this post FROM FIVE YEARS AGO.

I will graduate next Saturday with my Associates Degree in Accounting, with honors. I was named to the Indiana Community College All Academic Team and nominated (but sadly did not win) two national academic awards.

Mom's physical health is fine, but mentally the fog doesn't always clear on some days and those are challenging days for me.

Keeping busy by doing a lot of Masonic work and even started a part time job working for a "freaky fast" restaurant for a friend, so I now have cigar money again!

And to balance all of that good, ex-wife #2 is moving back to town this summer.

So all in all, what a long strange trip its been.

Well it sounds like most of the ducks are in order. Next time we have a cigar and scotch event for the Murat I will have to make sure to invite my nearby Masonic brother.

Congrats on the degree, Mom being well, and the new gig.

Sorry about the ex-wife. Thankfully mine moved out of town after 10 years of staying too close for comfort, so I don't feel your pain on that one.

Congratulations on the positive 5 year "re-boot" Sean. Great news for all at CA to hear!

What Masonic degree are you currently at Sean?

A couple of scriptures I like to turn to, to keep things going in a positive direction are:

Philippians 4 13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me," and the one on my sig line.

I thank God every morning for a great day, and for providing my family with health, safety, and our financial security. We've developed a "darn good relationship."

Keep it going forwards Sean

It's been a good 5 year peaceful run. Guess it had to end sooner or later.

At least I get to see my youngest all the time.
