Memorial Day Thoughts 4

I went to a funeral yesterday for a friend I’ve known for almost 20 years. I first met him when his son and mine were on the same soccer team. Later,  he listed a rental property for me when he was in real estate. Most recently, his wife  worked for the same company I do. In many small ways, I shared his life.

Monday is Memorial day. I count among my friends many Veterans, including my father who was a first Lieutenant in the US Army. During this holiday weekend, I plan to thank every person in uniform I see, to share a small moment of their life.

As we remember the dead, let us also honor the living, sharing the small things with others.
