THANK YOU


*

Fire in your blood, wanting to serve

ripped from your surroundings and thrust into battle

you surprise yourself that you even have the nerve

never knowing when you will hear your own death rattle

*

many return home, whole in body, dead in spirit

some return in a box, while families mourn

some wanting to return, others not wanting to go near it

joy abounds in many homes, while others' hearts are torn

*

everyone's life is changed, when a soldier fights our wars

we are free to live as we choose because someone was brave

they went into battle, brave to their cores

but in the end, bravery wasn't enough, and their lives they gave

*

so i thank you, soldier, those dead and alive

for going forth to defend our freedom and homeland

your bravery has kept me from having to deprive

my children of a life worthy of them taking their own stand.

to those who survived, may peace follow you throughout the rest of your life

to the families of those who did not survive, may peace find its way into your hearts

but most of all......THANK YOU.

 ok, i just did something really stupid.....i had made some snickerdoodles a few days ago, and there were a bunch of crumbs left in the ziploc bag, and I WANTED THEM. ok, so i think..(my first mistake)...what is the best way to accomplish this TASK? of course, i should have gotten out a bowl and dumped them in and got a spoon and scooped them out....but noooooo....i didn't want another dish to wash....so i tried dumping them into my mouth from the top of the bag.....but immediately ceased that action as the crumbs approached the opening with a fierce ferocity. so, i put brain in high gear (stripped all the lower gears in the process) and decided to snip the corner of the bag, put the little hole in the bag over my mouth (hole was supposed to be smaller than mouth) and i tapped the bag to empty the contents into my waiting mouth........what could possibly go wrong? well, it has been about 30 minutes since the attempt was made, and i am still trying to get all the little itsy bitsy crumbs out of my nasal cavity. brings a whole new meaning to "picking your nose". sigh.
