The latter half of Psalm 30:5 says "crying may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning."
Last night was bittersweet. I am an incredibly lucky man. Claire cooked New York Strip steak, scalloped potatoes with prosciutto, green beans almondine, scallops, and freshly whipped cream and berries for dessert. At the risk of leaving myself open for all kinds of jokes, I felt very special.
This morning, I was treated to excellent French toast.
I'll be leaving VA in about half an hour. Leaving won't be easy, but I have seen the promised land. I can go until I come back.
