Counting the Omer Day 40: Humility in Connection and Bonding

Today is Humility in Connection and Bonding

It’s Memorial Day weekend and not sure if I ever mentioned this before..Yep I have…I spent a good part of my young adult life serving in the United States Army. Serving my country. I don’t think that makes me more patriotic than the next person, but it does give me a unique perspective on our country….(Just thinking out loud)

As Memorial Day approaches I think of the many people that I met, worked with, loved all while serving my country. Some I still know but many I have lost contact with.

Being a member of the Armed Services requires a great deal of trust, bonding and connection, with others.  I often miss those days, miss my friends, miss those relationships, those connections…but life moves on, sometimes in ways that one would never expect, and we take those experiences and grow. Those experiences have helped to shape the person I am today, and today I am a stronger, kinder and gentler person and I am eternally grateful for my time serving my country.
