April 16th, the day everything has been building for since Jan. So much has been happening lately. It is incredible how quickly life can change. Dreams fulfilled, burdens lifted; everything seemingly happening at once. Recently the importance of several character qualities has really become apparent. It is incredible how often life events make seemingly abstract ideas become concrete. How a slight words spoken in jest or actions required for advancement completely change our outlook.
On another note, a really cool quote I heard in a seminar has given me pause for thought.
“The enemy is in front of us. The enemy is behind us. The enemy is to the right and to the left of us. They can’t get away this time!” – Gen. Douglas MacArthur
