“All Gave Some, But Some Gave All”
When I ask my son, “What do you do when you see a soldier?” he does a little four-year-old salute and says, “Thank you for your service.” For him to do so is important to me on a personal level, because my grandfather, the blue-eyed gentleman he was named for, served his country for most … Continue reading

I am one of those people who attempts 9,000 things at once, never completely knowing if I’m doing any of them well. It is who I am. Being still is difficult for me. For that reason, I hate manicures. I find it nearly impossible to just sit and do nothing while someone has hijacked my … Continue reading
