Gabe just called.  It was short, and we got cut off once, but it was so good to hear his voice.  He's already got some crazy tales to tell and he hasn't even made it out of Kuwait yet.  That will change within a few hours though.

Its so good to hear him laugh.  I needed to hear him laugh.  It was so reassuring.  It was good to laugh with him.  I miss that already.

International phonecalls just chew up those phonecards.  I didn't even get to tell him that I loved him before his phone card ran out and we were cut off once more.  I still said it to the phone, but I was okay with it because I knew he knew.

I feel wonderful now.

Except... my telekenetic experiment still hasn't produced the desired results.  Dang, I guess I'll have to wash the dishes by hand.

I am so happy that you and Gabe got to talk!  YAY!!!  

Can't you get one of the oompa loompas to do those dishes?  Almost as good as telekinesis!

Be well,

Dang, I was so hoping you would figure out that telekinetic thingy and pass it on to me.  Guess I need to go wash mine too then.  ::sigh::

So glad you heard from Gabe.  I am woohooing with ya, girlfriend!



We pray that you put a hedge of protection around Gabe and his comrades.  We ask this in the name of Jesus.

I'm so glad you got to talk to him. I know you must feel much better.
When you figure out how to make the dishes wash themselves, please let me know it seems like that's all I ever do.
Hugs, R.C.
