Military Families: Check out Project Sanctuary

I remember when the yellow "Support Our Troops" stickers and magnets were so popuplar that it seemed like they were on every other vehicle on the road. It was great to see people rally behind the troops. Now, after more than 10 years of war, we still need to support our troops - at home, as well as abroad.

What a lot of people don't realize is that the impact of deployments lasts a long time. Having to carry on with life while separated from your loved one is difficult enough. Unfortunately, many military families are destroyed during the "reintegration" of the military member back into the family.

I found the follwoing transcript from CBS about Project Sanctuary. It is "a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide therapeutic, curative, supportive and recreational activities to veterans, active military personnel, their spouses and children in a leisure environment."

Great idea!

Quote of the day - Love and Move On

No matter what they have done to you and said to you, you cannot stop loving them. No matter how much they disappoint you, if you think you love them, you probably do. Do not tell yourself you don't love somebody if you do. What you might want to do is make a choice about whether you want this person to be a part of your life. You can love them in the deepest part of your being and choose to move on.

On the road to Branson, Missouri this time to visit Bass Pro Shops' Big Cedar Lodge. It should be about five hours to get there. Hoping for some great traveling weather and road conditions.

This is one of those deals where they are going to sell us a timeshare. So, we have to go to one of the "presentations" while we're there. Since Big Cedar Lodge sits on Table Rock Lake, I'm looking forward to some good fishing. Maybe I can catch a few bass!
