Tonight's post is going to be a quickie, as there is only one item on my Happy List for the week; this item supercedes all others in terms of importance. Today, I am happy and grateful for this:
I do not wish this post to be an invitation for debate; I am not blind to the fact that this is only the first step of many and I certainly don't believe this to be the absolute end all be all. But I AM choosing to celebrate in this moment: it's been a long eight and a half years of violence and unncessary loss - it's time.
My heart is happy and I am especially moved by this announcement because my little brother served 18 months in Iraq. I extend my deepest gratitude to all soldiers who have served our country. Thank you for your service and all you have done!
Happy Weekend-ing, friends!
