hero

This blogger went to the memorial of a fallen Marine Saturday.
I will try to post about it soon.
it is very hard to find words for something
so sad and yet amazing; That a man would choose his
country and a cause over his own self.
I think I have a lot to learn from this sort of man.

----------------------Sunday AM transitions --------

sights and smells
maple sausage frying,
low angle sunlight slashing across the back yard
coffee brewing in the Melitta
the chirp of tiny birds in their cages greeting the day

It is going to be a big day.
I am meeting a client after church to propose building a concrete counter top for their kitchen.
the hitch: its a three hour drive each way!
The good part: I am an independent agent, so I can take jobs that would not make sense to others.
I get to have fun AND do incredibly beautiful things for my clients
Life is good in these mountains.

I think we can all learn a lot from that type of man. It's very hard to put yourself in the kind of mindset where you would truly give your own life for your country.

Michele sent me! It's been a while since I've stopped by. I should definitely come by more often.

I hope the client is paying for your gas!

As for the marine, I am in awe that people put their life in danger for me every day whether they want to or not. I hate that so many innocent men are losing their lives and their limbs.

It is sad to hear when a preson serving our country dies. I come from a military family. Though I am against war, I will always support the men and women that risks their lives for our freedom.

Thanks for stopping my blog. I appreciate that. :o)

I hope you can find a nearby place to stay while you work on that counter top.

BTW - I read below to your Feb 7 post that you switched to New Blogger. Feb 6 is the last day your feed showed up in Google reader for me. I had to re-enter you. I won't miss anymore postings now.
