Same old same old
I am on patrols now and not towers. It is a change in pace, but a little more exausting. Sometimes I am out all day, sometimes all night. At night I have lots of time to think, and so I do. I think about what is happening in the here and now; will I make a difference over here? Is all of this worth it? Are the personal sacrafices I am making going to be worth the cost to my family? I think so. If nothing else I will have memories to last a lifetime. God is good. He protects me every day. I sure am learning to lean.
Hey, every once in a while, you even have fun! I don't know if there is a group of guys in the whole world who can be put in a misserable situation and still always be so happy. Sure, there are down days, but we realize there is nothing gained from being blue. I love these guys, they're the best I've ever seen, These will be days to look back on as the golden years of our lives.
