Pearl Harbor Day

December 7th isn't a day that we celebrate, but it is a day that will live in our history. When Pearl Harbor was bombed on that Sunday morning by the Japanese it marked a turning point in the war, but also a turning point in the minds of Americans. We were no longer able to sit back, an attack had occurred on our soil and something had to be done about it. In my family's recent trip to Oahu we went to Pearl Harbor and visited the Missouri and gazed upon the Arizona Memorial. The sight is truly humbling as the lives that were lost are counted. To hear the stories and wonder what life on the islands must have been like at that time. To imagine what that day meant to the soon to be written history that is World War II. Take a minute of your time today to remember those soldiers and their families. Be thankful for what you have and what has been given to protect it.

It's December 6th...Already

Where is the time going? Not only is it time to decorate for the holidays again, but it is time to start setting our goals for 2011. I always seem to think that next week, next month, next...my life will calm down then. I guess it is time to realize if you are living, then your life is not calming down anytime soon and it is time to just embrace it. Time flies by, but as long as we make the most of it, it will be worth it! Have a great day!
