On catnipoflife, I have been running a series of messages about inspiration. Today, I received something via email with a message that literally brought tears to my eyes for more reasons than simply the message itself. First, I must reflect on events of late in order to put everything in the proper perspective.
Background. . .
Since my husband Jim's admittance to the hospital my time for writing at the computer (laptop crashed a few months ago) has been minimal. I have, of course, kept my notebook in hand for times in which I can reflect on thoughts of the day as he briefly rests. I interject the descriptor briefly for I know it is only a minimal time away from discomfort and pain.
The day before the initial trip to the ER we were visited by a Navy buddy (Homer) of Jim's whom he had not seen in 53 years. This reuniting had been in the making for several months ever since the buddy was located. With him was his sister Annette. Enlightening camaraderie prevailed among the four of us. In fact, it was discovered that Annette at one time worked under the supervision of my brother when she was teaching and he was the school principal. Such a small world:)
Today. . .
Each night when I return home I have been seeking my next inspiration for Awakenings. It came this morning from Annette within an email message. The author is unknown but the message is truly awakening. . .
If it weren't for the United States military, there would be NO United States of America. Click the link Without Regret or view the video clip The Final Inspection, but before you do, you had better go grab a box of Kleenex.
