I landed last night around 4 PM. When I arrived my heart was pounding. My mind was full of fear. I just wanted to get on the next plane home. This was truly the start of a new part of my life. The weather was hot and muggy. When I arrived at my hotel I went right to my room and I started to weep. I know this is what and where I should be. I spent the first night in my room trying to compose myself. With a lot of praying and understanding that what I was feeling is the loss of my family and friends. How lucky I am to have so many people in my life that love me. For it is this love that I have that made me feel the way I did. I would not give this pain of loss up for nothing. As it say's in the book The Art of Happiness (some pain is good pain) I had just forgotten and had to remind myself.
This morning was different. With prayer and a good meal I feel good. My God Bless all of family and friends.

A BETTER DAY
Steven I am glad to see that things are looking better for you today. I am sure after much praying and soul searching you knew you were in the right place. My concern would be that your feeling better might drive you off to the casino. LOL

Love ya

How Beatiful
You are so on the right path Steve - it feels so right. Just look at the people you've met and the lives you've touched in such a short period of time. You are truly blessed with the gift of giving and kindness. Feel the power of God Steve, you have been chosen. Look out Dominica - Steve Crovo is about to arrive!

God Bless - We Love You.

Stay strong
Remember when I went on my trip to Europe and I hid in the hotel room for three days scared! You guys got me through those first few days and I know you will get through this as well. Stay strong! Miss you!
