the gate

(This is a repost from Veteran's Day 2012)

The gate of life is always open



It beckons to us and where it will lead we never know



but we go through that gate, each day in our journey of life, and follow the twists and turns of the road ahead. Because we know that even as we travel over bumpy patches, there is so much surprise left on the road ahead.



Thinking this official Veteran's Day of my late father who kept on the road of life with dignity each and every day, until he passed through that final gate.

  7. My husband and I have been watching "The Pacific" on HBO all day. It's a back to back mini-series. It's hard to see the images of war played out in front of us like that. Your father appears to be in uniform so he deserves our respect for serving our country. That is a huge sacrifice.
