I hope you have friends and family you can spend time with today. If not, perhaps this is the day to pick up the phone and reach out to someone you haven’t talked to in a long time. Yeah, maybe it’s not an easy call to make, but sometimes it leads to a rich and rewarding relationship you would have otherwise thought would never happen.
Much love and warm thoughts go out to those who can’t be with their loved ones, especially those in uniform. Consider this a raincheck to be cashed in at a more appropriate time.
Perhaps you, like me, are lucky enough to wake up each day not wanting for food or shelter or the simple basic needs of daily life. Be humbled by and appreciative of your good fortune; why not do something for those in need? Perhaps your kindness will inspire someone else’s. Maybe someday it won’t take the focus of a national holiday to help most people feel that spirit of generosity.
And thank you for continuing to stop by, whether it’s daily or occasionally.
