A complete change of pace tonight.
This topic is so far from being wedding-related, I almost feel guilty posting it. But you know what? This is my blog. So I guess I can post whatever I want to, huh?
I just hope no one is offended.
I saw this the other day on another blog. I was so moved by it that I want to share it with others. But be warned... it is sad. For me, I think it's good to take a step back once in a while. Something like this puts life in perspective.
It makes the stresses of wedding planning seem all too trivial. Of course we all know that wedding planning isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of life. But we do allow ourselves to get quite caught up in it from time to time.
And given my recent post about my brother and the military, this hit very close to home for me.
First, read the story here. Then decide if you want to watch this (if you aren't able to watch it with sound, believe me--wait until you can to watch it).
God bless all the men and women in the armed services.
