Memorial Day

"He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has." ~ Epictetus ~

”Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.” ~ Thomas Jefferson ~

”The greatest homage we can pay to truth is to use it.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

”Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody's going to know whether you did it or not.” ~ Oprah Winfrey ~

I wanted to write something today emphasising honesty, truthfulness and love for others, in relation as to what is going on in my life at the moment and - especially - as it is was memorial day in the USA yesterday. I am not great with words, hence the above borrowed quotations from here and here but on Queen Kats blog Penny has placed this right after my honourary Princess of the Day and Thanks to our family for all we do - and believe me, in the RAF and indeed any service, the family doesn't aways come first as we have ourselves experienced many times in the past 14 years, anyway, here it is:

Memorial Day
All of us at Queen Kat Designs want to remember the fallen soldiers around the world today. The sacrifices that these men and women have made for this country and for their own countries deserve more than just a day, but with this day, we do honor the soldiers who have gone before and those who continue to fight. May God Bless each and everyone of you and your families as you give your all, sometimes, even the ultimate gift, to protect others.Thank you.

There you go, I cannot say much more. There are so many more important things in life than ego and petty squabbles.
Pause today, think about what is going on around you - does it really matter, really at the end of the day? No? Discard it. Move on with your life.
Take in what is happening in the big wide world and the scheme of things, somethings really don't matter. But things like memorial day do. Love, family and living a good life do.
Take a moment. Open your heart. Be truthful. Be honest. Discard trivialities and live a good life today and every day.
May whatever your beliefs are, bless you and people who are laying their lives on the line for us every day.

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy ~

Wonderful sentiments Sally. I dont know what has been going on in your life but I appreciate the time you took for writing. I have a young Gandson who is 18 on July 4th and goes to Afghanistan the day after, so your words meant a lot to me xxx
