Reality Check

Yesterday, I wrote a post about getting through your children’s teenage years and coming out the other end intact.

I prefer not to start my day with tears streaming down my face, but alas, today I do….and it’s David’s fault…but thank you and it is a little extra fitting that tomorrow is Veteran’s Day.

I cannot begin to fathom what it must have been like writing this Letter to my son. Nor can I appreciate the son’s perspective.

Interesting note: When I read the e-mail version of this, the video link did not show up, but when I went to the page to save the link, it was there….forget reading the letter, just watch the video.

Yes, children are capable of paying attention….Reality Check.

About Ray V.

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

    UH OH…..the waterworks have started! That was beautiful. As I have mentioned before, my daddy was Veterans Service Officer for York County and my life growing up was spent around activities for veterans. I will always have a special place in my heart for our veterans. Happy Veterans Day to all our military men and women. God bless them.



  2. Thank you Ray. I was similarly moved by the film…the words, the voice, the photos, all of it.
