2nd posting today-
I'm interrupting my regularly scheduled blog ...

Can someone please explain to me how, when you think things are about to turn for the worse you get something like this?

Then you go and read the comments and this is what is says:

Congratulations! You have touched people with your writing. You are a blue-ribbon blogger!

P.S. I'll be sending a special faerie to watch over Matt.

I got another letter from Matt today ... here is what is said...


Hey it's Sunday and I'm sitting here waiting to go to church. Things here are going ok, but I have to start pushing beyond the limits of my ability and improved or I'm getting dropped back, but don't worry I'm gonna make it. Me and Deason are working out during free time. That's why I haven't wrote as much because I've been trying to improve physically. Mentally I've got it figured out, SCREAM and you've got it made. My voice is gone. But the only thing hinduring me is running. I've lost 10 lbs since I've been here. My double chin is gone. Send me some pictures of everyone back home. Oh and send some envelopes and stamps. I gotta go now and get my stuff togethr for church. I'll try and write again tomorrow. I love y'all.


I called the recruiter and asked what this meant. He said that what this means that if he is having problems they will work with him and get him up to where he needs to be. If need be then they will put him in a platoon just for this. It's not a bad thing. He's more than likely not the only one struggling. What this does mean is that IF it happens then it would push his graduation date back.

I want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to the Blog Fairy. Sometimes things just come along when you least expect them to, don't they?

Now I'm going to ask everyone to say a special prayers for Matt. He has never really been much of a runner. He's always been a little slow with his running.

You may now return to today's regularly scheduled reading.

Proudly Brought to You by Dixie 3:37 PM
