Surprising recovery

I received an email today from a relative of Seif Benkailly Mahssen, who held the distinction of being the oldest family abduction case profiled on the Charley Project. He was less than a year old when his Yemeni father ran off with him back in 1958. Frankly, I didn’t expect they would ever find him. But Seif’s relative says he’s been found alive and well in Yemen! I’m sure his mother must be so glad. I hope Seif is willing to reconnect with her.

I know I’ve been awfully quiet lately…

…not blogging much, or updating much, these days. In truth I haven’t felt much like doing it, or doing anything. Work has been rough lately due to the Christmas rush and they’ve kept us late a lot. I’ve come home just wanting to sleep all day, and often I do. However, the Christmas rush is almost over and hopefully things will pick up around here again.

I certainly hope 2010 is a better year for me than 2009 or 2008. The last few years of my life have been difficult: health problems, personal problems, financial problems. But I see light up ahead. I’ve already thought up a few New Years’ resolutions. I was actually able to keep two of mine for this year.
