Just a quote for Friday

In honor of Veteran's Day
A photo of my father-in-law, Dave
Vietnam, 1968
He's the handsome guy standing up...

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen."

~ Elizabeth Kubler Ros

I think that might be one for discussion around our dinner table tonight as we remember family members who have been affected by war

I absolutely adore that photo. I can't believe your father in law was in Viet Nam when my dad was in WWII.
