made of HONOR

"Bless you, my darling, and remember you are always in the heart - oh tucked so close there is no chance of escape - of your sister." -- Katherine Mansfield
First of all Happy Memorial Day. Remembering all the amazing people who have served or who continue to serve our country, I wanted to say a special thank you to two of my favorite officers in training: my cousins, Ashley and Nathan.

I planned on composing a very interesting/applicable blog entry this afternoon about a topic that I was going to come up with some time in the last few hours, but instead I was busy helping my baby sister do some last minute packing for her three month visit to Uganda. And while my sister is flying somewhere over the Atlantic right now, I am lying in my bed quite exhausted from all the running around we did in the past 24 hours. So alas, no thoughtful entry today. Instead, since I was talking about my sister, I thought it an appropriate time to introduce my Maid of Honor! Yes, my sister has the privilege/burden of being my MoH... how lucky that my best friend happens to be my kin?! Apparently the MoH has a lot of responsibilities, but I am confident my sister is up to the task. One such task happens to be serving as my "emotional lifeboat" (according to That being said, I hope I don't go too crazy while she's gone. To say the least, she will be missed, but I'm sure she'll be having a ball while doing her part to eradicate malaria in Africa.

And congrats again to my cousin Rachael, who got married over the weekend.

"Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, 'Here are my mother and my brothers!
Whoever does God's will is my brother and sister and mother.'" -- Mark 3:34-35
