In Honor of Memorial Day...

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.

~ Luke 2:14 ~

I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.

~ William Ernest Henley ~

My thanks and prayers to all that serve(d) in order for my family to live in peace. I found the following quote marked in my Dad's book... long after he passed away. He'd served in the Army.

Is there another life? Shall I awake and find this all a dream?
There must be; we cannot be created for this type of suffering.
~ John Keats ~

That always makes me stop and think about so many things. Mostly about how hard it must have been for him... and how scared he must have been... all without word or complaint to us kids. ~soft whispers toward Heaven~ I miss you, Daddy... and love you so much.

Please be safe, everyone... God bless.

Until another time... Pearl
