And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
I think I will dedicate today's post to the family members that I am missing. I am coming to a new chapter in my life....the mid-point (arrrh!), and it's a good time to reassess and take note of everything (good & bad) I do pray that whatever I do, I can influence others for good. Maybe this blog will be a good way to do this....I hope so & I've said before....I would appreciate any thoughts or feedback. I'm not one to make new year's resolutions, but I do think we should strive to do better everyday. As I dedicate this post to two important people in my life, I hope you will take time to reflect on those you love....Speaking for myself, I don't always show and express my love as I should, but....we can always strive to improve...Also, remember love is not only a concept but an action. You don't just say you love, you show your love in everything that you do!!!
School starts tomorrow....so that means I'll be jumping back on the hamster wheel and I probably won't be having as many deep thoughts or time to reflect on them!!! :D
Something that dawned on me on my father's birthday, December 30th, when we lose a parent, we have one less person in our life who loves us unconditionally!!! (sigh)

|My Dad & brother sharing Bday cake. Their bdays were one day apart. It was the last one my dad celebrated.|
|Right before my son left for Afghanistan (Trying to look cheerful)|
|I believe this is the last picture I took of my dad. It was the last day my son spent with him. This was about a week and half before he died.|
