Mid sentence I stop... it's the end of a long training day: energy's down, and thought processes are slowing. I've just caught myself complaining about the length of time that it takes the wreath laying procession at the Remembrance Day ceremony.
"You ungrateful ass!!"
Embarrassed and saddened, I scoffed at my gripes and made note to my client that I have absolutely NOTHING to be moaning about and recalled the reality of what it is that we commemorate on November 11th.
Selflessness. Bravery. Sacrifice.
This was just the reminder that I needed. That gut check that MY life is pretty effin' cushy. That my "bad days" and "trials" are fleeting moments. My only struggle is to keep this reminder close to heart... not just today, November 11th but EVERY day!
All I can say is Thank You!
