Weekend Reads: No-reading edition

This weekend I hope to be doing no reading. Ok, that's a lie. If I am reading though, I hope it's leisurely, with a cold beverage in my hand and warm sun on my shoulders. All long weekends should be so idealistically lounge-laden and relaxing.

While relaxing though, please take a moment to put those we've lost, their families and loved ones into your heart. No matter your stance on war, home-country or station in life, someone, somewhere has sacrificed for you. Gratitude for life and the moments in it, be it as small as a wave from your child, as great as an overwhelming expression of love, as quiet as holding a hand or as loud as screaming into the Grand Canyon, are all ways of saying thank you. Be wildly joyful about the life you've been afforded by the sacrifices, strength and support of others - it is the best thanks you can give.

Have a beautiful weekend!

Hi Tricia :) Thank you for stopping by and leaving a kind comment on my scare with Hubby. I actually haven't heard from him again since late Thursday night but I know he was surrounded with lots of help at that point so I just have to try and wait patiently for another update :)

We just finished having a three day weekend last week and I spent a lot of time lounging by the lake and reading for pleasure *grin*. I hope you have a wonderful weekend as well. Hugs.
