I love the words of your little Noticer – wise, sensitive, intuitive – I am a Veteran like my father before me shirt at my heartstrings daily. Kind people need kindness just as much as everybody else. Basically, we all need kindness. You are a gift. Thank you for reminding that we can be a gift of love and kindness to the world. One blessing at a time. It’s good to see the beauty in everyone. And sharing kindness is a blessing. On Saturday morning, I announced that I’d like to have strawberry shortcake for my dessert. This surprised my family. In my fifteen years as a mom, I’ve never requested this treat. I couldn’t pinpoint why I just knew it sounded really good. It was what I wanted and almost felt like what I needed.

Best I am a Veteran like my father before me shirt
On Sunday night, as my family and I am a Veteran like my father before me shirt and homemade whipped cream on slabs of coconut pound cake, I remembered. When I was five, my parents took my sister and me to the home of family friends. They did not have children, so I felt it was important to be the extra grown-up and polite. For dessert, the couple had made strawberry shortcake. I remember how they let me assemble it myself and didn’t say anything when I piled the strawberries and whipped cream extra high. As I was walking out to their screened-in porch to enjoy my little masterpiece, I tripped and fell. My delicious tower hit the floor with a thud, strawberries and whipped cream flew in every direction.
