I'm back

I know I haven't posted in a while. Don't worry, I'm okay. I was on R&R leave back in the US, spending a couple of weeks with my wife and kids. It was a really nice visit, but I'm back in Iraq now.
As for the visit, it was great. I spent most of it just hanging out with the family. It was my son's birthday, so he got to teach me all about his new Nintendo Wii. Also, since it was his 8th, we did his baptism. I'm truly thankful for the opportunity to do this. I was able to perform the baptism while my brother was one of the witnesses. Again, I'm thankful for this.
I truly appreciate everyone's posts. It takes real character to be so honest and open, and it helps me get through it, one day at a time, to know that there are others out there going through the same thing.
Prayers and best wishes for all of you.



Welcome Back!    
"I'm glad you're posting here again, but I'm even happier that your doing well and you got to baptize your son. Your success gives me a lot of hope for my own recovery.

I know I've said this before, but I can't help but feel grateful for people like you who sacrifice so much to serve our country. I really respect your willingness to leave your family and serve so selflessly."

"Man has a dual nature; one, related to the earthly or animal life; the other, akin to the divine. Whether a man remains satisfied within what we designate the animal world, satisfied with what the animal world will give him, yielding without effort to the whim of his appetites and passions and slipping farther and farther into the realm of indulgence, or whether, through self-mastery, he rises toward intellectual, moral, and spiritual enjoyments depends upon the kind of choice he makes every day, nay, every hour of his life"
