Every Sunday lately has just been great. This past Sunday I got to see a friend that has been in Afghanistan for the last 9 months and who I haven't seen for about a year. It was a great reunion. We got to have lunch at his parents house and then go for a 3 hour drive in the beautiful back roads of our hometown. It really is a beautiful place, full of hills, rivers, changing trees, and just a sense of "home". It is hard letting go of someone and then having them back in your life for a short time only to lose them again in a couple of weeks.
