Some days...

June 6, 2013 Photo of the day: "Perspective"

Yesterday, I blogged about thorns.
Although painful, without them,
today's exquisite rosebud would not exist.
.
It is often necessary to endure difficult situations
to rejoice in the triumph of one's accomplishments.

Today was one of those thorny days...
A day when a glass of wine after work 
might relieve stress and help gain some perspective:


Yet the worries and stresses of today (June 6, 2013)
pale in comparison to those of June 6, 1944:


Today, I look back on my stressful day
and give thanks to those who,  nearly 70 years ago, 
faced adversity with true faith and bravery,
and all I can say is "Thank you!"
