fathers day

i just want to talk a little bit about how thankful i am for my family. i know it is fathers day, and i will get to that. lol. but i believe we should be thankful for and celebrate all of our family, everyday. i dont know how i got so fortunate. i have talked to so many friends of mine who just do not get along with their family, or have nothing to do with them period. and i understand that happens...nothing against them. but im so greatful to have the relationship that i do with my family. from the grandparents on down. i have a God fearing family who has been nothing but wonderful to me. i know that if ever i feel unloved or lonely, i can always be confident that i can find it thru the doors of my home. so thank you and i love you to my family. its an unfortunate rarity to find that these days.

now, fathers day. i can not begin to tell you how wonderful my father is. a lot of you know him, so you know. he is one of the most kind-hearted, loving, honest and faithful men you will ever meet. my preacher talked this morning about fathers being an example for their children and hoping that their kids would say, i want to be like you dad. well, i do. i want to be like my father. i love and respect him so much. he is just a good man. i want to be like my parents. they have been that example in my life. im am just overwhelmingly thankful for what i have. i want to just say, dad, happy fathers day. much love to my family and i couldn't tell you enough how greatful i am to have you in my life.

happy fathers day to all daddys out there. not that any men read this, but hey, you ladies can tell them. lol.

on the other side

first of all, i want to apologize for the hundred posts of "the end of the road" that had nothing for anyone to read. i have had no internet access ever since i moved to the other side of base and just realized that all i wrote in that post...didnt show up. lol. so, sorry. not sure what happened there.

so, i have moved to the other side of base. it leaves a lot to be desired. it isnt THAT bad, but it's not what i have gotten used to. the rules are different, the people dont like us "aircrew people" and nothing seems to make sense. they wake you up at 23oo to tell you that you have watch at 0300. why? why couldnt you have told me this at 1200? because it is "funny" to wake people up at all hours when you arent the one doing watch. i clean from 0700 to 1400. clean the clean. thats what they say. you have no purpose but to serve us hahahahahahaha! please! on a working party now and i dont do that anymore. lol. it really wasnt that's just going from feeling accomplished and being challenged everyday to cleaning a spot on the floor for hours on end is a little more than disappointing. you think you are going to move forward and yet, you take a step back. but, im going to make the best of what i have while im on hold. i did get to experience a lot of things that not many people will in their lifetime. so i cant complain. my body is i wont.

i hope that everyone is doing well! hope to hear from some of ya! take care and have a wonderful day!!!!
