Proecthesis (pro-ek’-the-sis): When, in conclusion, a justifying reason is provided.

Ok, so I’ve been missing for seven years. No, I haven’t been in prison. I didn’t remarry or even have any kind of relationship with anybody for all those years. I just got stuck in the “grass is always greener” syndrome. Every time I thought about coming back, I got a glimpse of the other side and just kept on going. Finally, I got to a place in Nevada where there was no grass. I decided to come home right then and there. Now, I’m mowing lawns for a living and it keeps me satisfied. Can we start over?
