Brighter days

Later today I have to go to a counseling meeting at the High School with my son who is a sophomore.  It is interesting to hear an almost 16 year old plan out his life goals, especially when they are not the same as what I had in mind.  His plans are to go in the military which scare me as a mother since we always think of them as our babies and never want to see them get hurt or even worse.  I am thankful for those who do serve and prayer for them and their parents who worry about them each day.  My godson is abroad right now and so is his wife.  Their daughter is being cared for by her mother since they are gone in active duty for a year.  The world is a scary place sometimes.
I made a card using this week's color palette from Play Date Cafe for a friend of mine that is going through some difficult times.  I thought these colors were a lot of fun.
