Today is Veteran's Day!
A day to thank to all those who have fought to defend and maintain America's many freedoms. These people are blessings, every one of them.
Here's a photo of my favorite vet, my father-in-law, may he rest in peace.Freedom isn't free :)
Dying for your country is huge; the ultimate sacrifice.
Speaking of death.....
Attending a funeral yesterday was a wonderful reminder that:
A) This life is temporary.
B) I want to die when I am old. By that, I mean, not young.
C) The greatest blessings in life are health, family and love.
Esther's eternal life of peace has begun, her earthly life officially ended.
Can I share something that has not ended yet?
Lucas's callback audition in Hollywood.
These things are always a long shot, but dreams are free! Dream Big, I say! Until there is a definite NO involved, let's have fun with it...
let's dream "the call" arrives!
Commercial or not, memories were made and Lucas survived the ride to/from Los Angeles with a male-seventeen-year-old driver at the wheel. That is something we've purposely avoided because big-city drivers are crazy and unpredictable ... AND SO ARE male teen drivers. Bad mix!
This knowledge is backed by statistics and gained from personal experience!
As I enjoy this day off from work, I am thankful for all of our Veterans, the life of Grandma Esther and fact that Dreams are Free!
