I stopped at Big Al's Army Life this morning and read this.....Why hadn't I posted this before, or something similar?
It is not simply about lessons of learned while your loved one is deployed. It is so much more than that. It is about a way of thinking. Realizing the life is not random, it is filled with choice and lessons, and teachers.....
It is a great post about lessons learned. What great things we can learn when we listen and think. Especially when we are uncomfortable. Those lessons always seem to happen when we need them most.
The most spiritual human beings, assuming they are the most courageous, also experience by far the most painful tragedies: but it is precisely for this reason that they honor life, because it brings against them its most formidable weapons.
Without change, something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.
They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.
