Akin to a Picture

It's Memorial Day.... And I began my morning talking with a coworker who lost her 4 years ago in Iraq. I knew, when I popped on to FB and saw all her pictures posted, she just needed an ear.

Losing a is never easy, no matter what the circumstance, no matter what the age.

It was an emotional talk, and I needed to break free... So I headed to Lake Michigan, my happy place.

Every year a different beach, a different water level, a different set of new experiences.

I have to say, I am happy to see some beach again!

I had walked quite a way down the beach when I saw this....



It spoke to me.

Clinging to life, trying to make the best of it's current situation.... Hanging on by threads. Tough enough to remain upright, with it's branches held high, very much like myself and a lot of people I know.

To all you veterans out there... Thank you for your service. I do know that it is you and your families who make the ultimate sacrifice.

And, because I thought you might like them... A few pics from my journey.

Thank you, and, you're right. We're all hanging on by a thread. Sometimes, just knowing you are not alone, is the best therapy in the world. There is strength in knowing you are not alone.

    The stories that tree could tell must be so compelling.
I have another picture of a really old tree on the beach.... Now THAT tree must have stories! I'll make sure to get a pic when it gets leaves and post it.

When my middle son told me he was thinking about joining the military when he turned 18... My anxiety kicked into overdrive. It's his choice to make, I do want him to be happy, but I can't help but worry.

    What a nice thing to do for your colleague!

    And Lake Michigan looks stunning! Gotta go there some time......
Her son was my age.... Career military man. He left behind a son and a pregnant wife. My coworker and friend is just devastated to this day at his loss and she carries a huge burden of guilt as a parent who outlived their child.

    all of us know some one that could be replicated in the first photo, just hanging on by a thread.

    The other photos look nice, glad you were able to get out, It was a stormy day here showers all day till dark, so am inside day here..No sun for several days here, the weather has to change, have a good evening be safe..
I left when the biting bugs came out... I guess it was a warning sign that it was about to storm. It started to thunderstorm around 4pm, but I had gotten a bunch of really cool pictures already.

It was. I wasn't able to explore this section of beach at all last summer because the water level was so high.... Felt good to get back to it.

    I think most of the world is like that tree right now. Some more than others. Very good analogy!
All along that section of beach there are toppled trees... Some really big and very established. This one I was amazed by, the sand beneath it is completely washed away. I'm sure the next time I go there he'll be toppled over too...
