For the past several days I've been visiting my son who is in OSUT at Fort Benning, GA. This was the first time we had seen him since March 6th when he left. Friday was Family Day and we were able to be with him through Sunday. It was a FANTASTIC weekend!! The smiles on their faces tell how happy Brother and Sister were to be together again!

The true way to be humble is not to stoop until you are smaller than yourself, but to stand at your real height against some higher nature that will show you what the real smallness of your greatness is. ~ Phillips Brooks

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common - this is my symphony. ~ William Henry Channing
