Happy New Year!

How beautiful the turning of the year!A moment artificial yet profound:Point upon an arbitrary chartPassing like a breath upon the heart,Yearning with anticipation wound,New hope new harbored in old-fashioned cheer.Even when the boundary line is clear,We recognize the oneness of the ground.Years, like circles, do not end or startExcept we lay across their truth our art,Adjusting dates as they go round and roundRevolving to a tune long sung and dear.

Wreaths Across America 2014

On Saturday, Dec.13, my husband and I were privileged to volunteer to help lay wreaths at
 Arlington National Cemetery as part of Wreaths Across America

It was an uplifting, awe-inspiring, and humbling experience. They had estimated 25,000 volunteers, but I think the number of people who showed up exceeded that! Their goal this year was to cover every headstone in the cemetery, and they achieved that goal. It was breathtaking to see the endless rows of the graves of our fallen heroes with the wreaths on them.
