I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

In war, there are no unwounded soldiers. ~ José Narosky
saw something so precious today. As I was standing in line at the
store, an elderly gentleman was standing in front of me and as the
checker scanned his food she said, "I see you're a Veteran. Which War
did you serve in?" and he said, "Korean." She said, "Well, thank you
for serving our country!" and I said, "God bless you, sir!" I told him
my dad had been a Veteran of WWII. The lady told him, "You know, I'm
going to give you a hug!" and she stepped around the counter and just
enveloped him in her arms in such a heartfelt way and kissed him on the
cheek. Now, THAT made my day! I've been smiling every time I think of
it ever since.
