Yeah1 My brother in law is finally home. We have waited for this day for six months. I'm so happy for our whole family. I think after the newness has worn off, Paul will thrive in his familiar surroundings. Patty, you've been an absolute rock during this entire life changing event and held it together seamlessly. I know you are so relieved and thankful that Paul is finally home. Can't wait to see you guys for Christmas. Welcome Home, my friend. Love, Karen

I feel happy and grateful for you, Paul, that you are home. I KO'd my earlier comment 'cause I mistyped a word.

I was saying Miracles happen. YOU are a miracle, Paul. As a spiritual book I've read (not written -- a-ha!!) says, "The age of miracles is still with us!!!"

Patty -- I feel so happy for you and your family.

Much love and grace from a brother and friend of Willie's --

Grace and peace -- Joe

It is my first time i visit here. I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the leisure here! Keep up the excellent work.
