Even One Lift is Too Many




Even one life is too many to lose. 
While we should do this daily, I encourage you on the 22nd of every month to call and check your battle buddy. It takes just a moment. Military or not, we deserve to see each other tomorrow.

Even One Life is Too Many

There is something so wonderful and comforting about good friends. To be honest, I have a lot of acquaintances but very few true friends. Maybe it is the introvert side of me, but it is my reality. I am so thankful for the patience and persistence of my friends. They have gotten me through some really rough times of my life. The words "thank you" will never be enough.

Escaping to the Snow

There was a medical conference that I have been wanting to attend. It is one of those conferences that would be fun but I was not planning on going out of my way for it. This year, it lined up perfectly with a snow trip that was already planned with some friends.
 
We attended lecture in the mornings and evenings which left the afternoon wide open for snow time! What a great way to schedule a conference.

Even One Life is Too Many

So much has happened this year.

But there is only thing we cannot live without. Life. We need life.

There are wonderful things happening in the world for some people. And there are horrendous things happening in the world for other people. We need to care. We need to put people first. Age, race, gender, ethnicity, country of origin, religion…it does not matter. People are people. We need to take care of people.

The holidays can be a difficult time for many people. You know that one co-worker who recently moved to town for the job. What are they doing this holiday weekend? I challenge you to invite them to dinner, or even just coffee. Their life matters.

Amy Was In Town


Amy was in town for the 75th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The annual festivities were much grander this year to include a "community" band composed of kids throughout the US. She is a band director and brought a handful of her students to participate. 
The powerful sound that the group had was amazing. There were speakers, dancers, and singers as well. But the 1,200+ group of kids was incredible. What a sound!

Opt Outside

We opted to be outside today. On one of the busiest retail days of the year, rainBeau and I decided that we did not want to be a part of that. We wanted to be away from all the noise and hustle that is associated with Black Friday. We chose to enjoy the partly cloudy skies and amazing views of where my job has taken me.
