I am thankful Russ's job as the youth pastor at Castle Oaks Church ended.
It ended poorly.
I truly do not remember all the painful details today...I remember I broke several teeth in my sleep and spent all my free time at the dentist...but it also was the first step in getting us home to Omaha to our families, and ultimately to Gentle Doctor Animal Hospitals, and for that I am grateful.
In large part because of how painful leaving Castle Oaks Church was, Russ now is a carpenter. It is a perfect fit, and he loves it.
Now I can't imagine him doing anything else.
