Perspective

I realize I have been bitching and moaning about all sorts of things recently: mortgage drama, lack of snow, blah blah blah. A quick glance at the calendar gives me a bit of perspective and I’ve really got nothing to complain about compared to what people had to deal with 70 years ago today. I certainly wouldn’t have the luxury of my petty little problems without the hard work and sacrifice of the Greatest Generation.
