My Thank You On Memorial Day

2016-05-27-1464360357-4886095-memorial_day_deals_and_freebies

I am not sure what the reason, but this year I feel more patriotic than ever before. I know I am more in tune with what is going on around the world and my country. Maybe that is why?

All I know is everything I have done today I thought of the fallen heroes. These might seem trivial or silly, but when you think about all the things we, as Americans, get to do because of freedom I don’t take them for granted.

  1. I woke up from a peaceful sleep this morning.
  2. I drove to the store to buy all the food and items I needed.
  3. I ate until I was full.
  4. I listened to my radio in the car.
  5. I got to go swimming.
  6. I was able to do yard work.
  7. I got to eat again.
  8. I worshiped God publicly without fear.
  9. I am doing my laundry.
  10. I am watching Nascar.
  11. I get to take a hot shower.

I am thankful for all the selfless men and women who loved me and my country enough to leave their families to defend mine. So many soldiers never made it back to their loved ones. That is an ultimate sacrifice.

Thank you, courageous men and woman. We are the land of the free because of the brave.

 

Life is tough my darling, but so are you

Life is tough my darling, but so are you. Stephanie Bennett-Henry

You never know how tough and strong you can be until you have a sick child. You want to run and hide. You get angry. You scream. You cry. You feel helpless. You feel fear. You don’t understand all the big medical words.

Confusion sets in. You feel small, helpless, weak.

You fall to your knees. You look to the sky. You pray.

You find strength. You find hope. You find understanding. You find peace.

Do you believe that you can have absolutely anything you want?

This is a post I read earlier today. Loved it and had to share. Click the link to read. You won’t be disappointed.

 

Do you believe that you can have absolutely anything you want? If not, then why is that? Give it some thought: why do you think that you cannot have anything you desire? Is it because it’s too hard, or impossible, or just not logical…? Or do you believe you’re not worthy? Ask yourself: why do…

Regret

Regret. Do you ever think about the things in your life you wish you hadn’t done? When I hear the word regret, I picture a black wall. I think of should have, would have, could have. I see a fork in the road. Do I take the left side or the right? What if I make the wrong decision. My ears hear moaning and sighs. I picture hands covering a face as the head moves back and forth.

I have things I regret. I regret chasing my sister through the house and busting through the glass door. I regret eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal when I had the stomach flu. I regret back talking my mom in the checkout line in Wal-Mart. I regret not studying for that math test in 6th grade. I regret hitting that classic Ford Mustang and driving off to tell my mom and the cops are looking for me because I technically did a thing called a “hit and run.”

I regret not pursuing acting. I love theater. I always wanted to live in New York and work on SNL. I regret that one night I drank too much Hot Damn. I regret not telling my grandmothers I loved them more before they passed away.

What do you regret doing or not doing? What do you think would have happened in your life if you did the thing you regret?
