“The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.”
That quote is courtesy of a reader. I really like it. What a great way to turn something that is negative into a positive. The quote is kind of is fitting for the week that I have been having. I have found that if you have a positive attitude then it will usually outlast whatever difficult time you may be having.
I am about to have an overdose of Swedish Fish. I just can not stop eating them. They came as part of a care package. Today was our one "low tempo" day of the week (our one day off). The VCR program planted apple trees today but I was just too tired to participate. I heard that it was a lot of fun.
Someone from Encino, California sent me a CD with a very nice card.
Here are some more movies and CDs. This package was from the Books For Soldiers group. They must have sent us 30 CDs. I thought that one of the band's title was really funny, The Flesh Eaters.
These cookies are from "The Cookie Lady" and her "Crumbs" from Treat the Troops. It came with a number of really great letters. One of the bakers calls herself an "Old Crumb." She says that she has been baking for 9 years.
Here are some presents for some of our team members from an Angle from Inyokern, California. I put them under the tree already.
A ton of cards from second graders from Surprise, Arizona. Here are some other team members that you may not recognize.
Lastly, I wanted to end with a great picture of Adam when he was in Herat. He is so full of positive energy and a really fun person to be around. He has helped to make this deployment really fun. Here he is goofing around with a camel.
Thanks for reading.
