For January 5: I missed the most? That pat on the butt whenever we got close. No matter where we were. Just one soft pat.
Thankful the most? Sunshine. How good to see the sun after days of grey skies.
For today, January 6: I miss the most? Not having to defend myself against rude and hateful behavior. Thankful the most? Knowing that this too shall pass, hopefully.
A SOLDIER’S SUPRISE
by Gail Litrenti-Benedetto, Park Ridge, Illinois
It is spring of 1943 during World War II. Standing among hundreds of new soldiers at Camp Grant, in Illinois, my father, Sam, just 18 years old, waits as a truck slowly drives by. A full field pack is randomly tossed to each soldier. “How strange,” my father thinks, as he sees his last name, Litrenti, marked on each item in his pack. “How did they know it was me when they tossed the pack?” He was impressed! Beating all odds, my father was tossed a field pack from World War I—his own father’s.
Thank you to the one who shared this with me. I promise myself to think more like this on 2019. 💞
I’M SO IN LOVE with this BRAVE WOMAN. I’ve betrayed her. I’ve not loved her at full capacity. I’ve fed her lies & once told her she wasn’t good enough. I’ve allowed her to be broken. I’ve allowed her to run through brick walls & battle for others who won’t even stand for her. I couldn’t stop individuals from abandoning her, yet I’ve seen her still get up to be a light to the world & love others despite all. I’ve stood paralyzed by fear as she faced battles alone, watching her fight for those she loves. Forgive me for not going to war for you like you do for others. This QUEEN is a WARRIOR. She’s not perfect but the Gods call her WORTHY! She’s UNSTOPPABLE. Gracefully broken but beautifully standing. She is love. She is life. She is transformation. She is grace. She is BRAVE! She builds Arks before there is any rain. Who wouldn’t fall in love with her for a lifetime? #timetoputmyselffirstforonce #lovewhoyouare #iamenough 🙌🏽⭐️ Please Repost With A Picture Of Yourself.
Why this page?
I wanted a place to share coffee thoughts & memes. I use Facebook & Twitter to do just that, however, I realize that many people are getting fed up with all the drama that is on either, and both. So many that were using those 2 social medias to stay in touch, have taken a step back - yet they still want to know thoughts that go thru this scattered widow's brain. If you are interested, here it is :) - - without the drama.
