There are a couple of things that have happened lately that have been rattling around in my head. They are of the deep and meaningful variety so I am trying to get to a point where I can convey them appropriately. I think I have a framework now, and will start posting about those in the next few days.
In the mean time, my promise to list my gratitudes needs a boost. Today I am grateful to all of you. I want to say thank you to all of you who read about our lives. I was just looking at the stats for this blog and there are over 50,000 page views since Blogger started tracking these in 2009. I know that's not all from my mother and I am grateful that people give us a little of their time. An old friend called me yesterday and told me that I make her laugh or cry when she reads this. I love it when I learn that someone is reading and knowing its having an effect on someone is even better.
And just so I don't forget tomorrow. Thank you to all the Veterans out there who have served and sacrificed so that I can have the freedoms I do.
