With Gratitude

Grandpa Robert R. Greiner, 1921-2008. WWII Veteran
"The brave die never, though they sleep in dust:
Their courage nerves a thousand living men."

This long weekend is about more than just extra time off, BBQs with family, sun worship and DIY projects; though there is no problem with these activities, they would be impossible without the privileges we enjoy that have been earned by the fighting men and women of past and present.

When it comes to war we may not always agree with where or why or for how long, but everyone should be able to find common ground when it comes to honoring those who have served. 

So today- especially today- I will move through my day with gratitude and reverence for all that has been given so that I may have what I have.

Happy Monday.
