    Welcome to this new month of June.

    What brings you joy? We all have different things that trigger thoughts and feelings of happiness or joy. What is most important in being able to find and feel the happiness or joy in our lives is being present to recognize it in the moment. Mindfulness. By doing this, you turn off all the extraneous stuff that is distracting, and constantly vying for your attention.

    Why not open yourself up to your happiness and joy? Let's use this new month of June to consciously be mindful and present. Let's be willing to open ourselves up to all the happiness our heart can hold! Actively seek out the things that bring you pleasure, happiness, peace, contentment, or better yet - pure joy. Allow life to bring you the spontaneity it has been waiting to give to you. As they come to you, and you begin to notice them, and absorb them into your heart and soul, thankfully allow yourself to sit and soak in the sunshine of each of those moments so lovingly sent to refuel your body, mind, spirit, and soul.

    Have a good week and an even better month!

    In honor of this Memorial Day weekend, here’s a little military humor:

    You would think that being a submarine captain would pay well - but I hear they can't keep their heads above water.

    Trench warfare should always be a last ditch effort.

    Paratroopers pull strings to stay on the job.

    When the sailor failed to report for duty, he really missed the boat.

    The soldier who survived mustard gas and pepper spray is now a seasoned veteran.

    Where do rabbits learn to fly?
    In the hare force.


    One Sunday morning, the minister noticed a little boy staring up at the large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church. It was covered with names, and small American flags were mounted on either side of it.

    The seven-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the minister walked up, stood beside the boy, and said quietly, "Good morning, son."
    "Good morning, Father," replied the young man, still focused on the plaque.
    "Father Scott, what is this?" the young boy asked.
    "Well, son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service." Soberly, they stood together, staring at the large plaque.
    The small boy's voice was barely audible when he asked, "Which service, the 9:45 or the 11:15?"

    Please remember to display your flag this weekend in memory of those who gave their all!
