Fight the Good Fight

If I’ve learned anything it’s that a service member’s fight doesn’t end when they return home from war or are even when they are discharged all together from active duty.  A battle still rages, on multiple fronts.  Most everyone is familiar with or at least heard of the PTSD battle and the coinciding battle for … Continue reading Fight the Good Fight

Take Care of Yourself

Is it just me or is it hard to believe February is already upon us?!?!?!?!  It seems as though each year passes more quickly than the previous.  The saying, “Time flies,” becomes truer a statement the older I get.

THE POWER OF A DREAM

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is around the corner.  Hard to believe it’s here again so quickly.  Seems like it arrives a little faster with each passing year.  When I was a child it seemed FOREVER before Christmas arrived, but now, I blink and it’s upon me again. Although I’ve always enjoyed Christmas, its significance and meaning to me … Continue reading Merry Christmas!

WAKE UP, STAND UP, STEP UP

Step up..... That phrase kept rolling around in my thoughts and heart today.  It comes from watching the apathy of the world around me.  It saddens my heart to see the state our country is in these days.  We are governed by a President who seems to take ISIS and threats against Americans as seriously … Continue reading WAKE UP, STAND UP, STEP UP
