I’m shamelessly reblogging this because I added a little verse to the comments, and I rather like it. Also, if you haven’t ever read any of Colleen’s posts then you are missing out on some very wise words, some selfless, and often moving, observations, and the chance to get to know more about a lovely lady.

She served in the Army Reserve and did a tour in Afghanistan. I thought I would share the view, and her positive thought below.
The only thing she’s concerned about is what’s happening right now, in this moment.
