The Kindness of Strangers

heiberg-ii_usma_3dec16The small acts of so many made my job as a caregiver so much easier. Humanity includes many wonderful components we sometimes forget.

I just received a picture of the wreath that was laid in honor of my grandfather at West Point Cemetery. Not only do volunteers gently deposit it, they also take the time to take a picture and have it sent back to me so I can share it with the family.

Best wishes to all of us who are missing a loved on on this holiday.

I am grateful to all of those who helped me on my care-giving journey. Some of you stepped in to help when I needed to step back, or encouraged me on when I wasn’t sure I was able to continue. Many thanks. Remembered. 

 

Thank you for your service

vetsthankyouOn this Memorial Day, I want to say “thank you” to all of those who are serving or have served our country. My father, grandfather and great-grandfather served in the U.S. Army. I’m proud of the legacy each of them left behind. There are millions more that deserve our appreciation.

For all the men and women who have served our country “Thank you for your service.” Appreciated.
