|It is fitting that military appreciation month and Memorial Day fall in the same month. I am so grateful for the people like my son who devoted their lives to keep us safe. I always knew when my son was in the military that decisions with which he was involved would be of high integrity.|
Now we move into Memorial Day weekend: the time to remember all of the military who gave their lives for our freedom. The men and women over the centuries who have been willing to serve and put themselves in danger. Thank you and may you be resting in the arms of God.

|"I offer what has surprised me in my pain: that life is not fair, but unending in its capacity to change us; that compassion is fair and feeling is just; and that we are not responsible for all that befalls us, only for how we receive it and for how we hold each other up along the way." |
Since I have written about being sick the last few weeks, I want to share that I think Mark Nepo is right. Challenges befall us. Germs overtake us, a rock thrown cracks our windshield, the job we wanted we did not get. It is not personal, nor is it a matter of being punished. Things just happen. Let us be gentle with ourselves.

|Thank you, blog readers, for your wishes of good health and reminders to take care of myself. After two trips to the doctor and two antibiotics, I think I am on my way back to health. I appreciate you and your reminders that we must take care of our own well being.|
