Friday Letters 11/16

I said yesterday life is going too fast these days.

Today, I feel that even more.

I lost a very close friend to cancer yeaterday.
It renewed my resolve to slow down, to enjoy every moment I have with my family.

Steve was a soldier and his wife was a fellow Army wife and close friend.
So, I dedicate today's letter to him.

Dear Steve,
You were such an example of humor, grace, and servanthood.
I cannot wait to see you again when I get to Heaven.
Keep the gates open for us.

Dear Veteran's Day,
I loved the parade. Especially all the kids and teenagers participating.
It gives me hope for our future.

Dear James,
I am so proud of you for honoring our country.

Dear USA,
I am so blessed to live here.
To have the freedoms for which brave men and women have fought and died.

 then, she {snapped}
