A Blessed Memorial Day

Of all of the reasons,     of all of the people,         of all of the pictures,              and all of the messages… Memorial Day is about this…           No caption,               no sentence,                   no title,                       can say it more appropriately                           than the feeling you feel in your heart,                               when you […]

Tomorrow will never arrive…

I’ll do it tomorrow. Tomorrow is only a day away. But by the time tomorrow gets here it is already today and so we have to wait for the next tomorrow which never gets here because again, it is today… it is an ever revolving cycle of spinning wheels if you always wait until tomorrow, […]
