I should be working now but ...
I'm still thawing out. The Assistant Fire Chief for Fairfield Township (where I live) passed away on Monday and the funeral was today. We have friends in the fire department and I have a huge respect for anyone who serves as a Firefighter or Police Officer so I really wanted to do something to pay respects. So this morning I bundled up and walked over to the funeral home to stand along the procession route ... just my way of saying thanks. It was the least I could do for a man who would willingly run into my burning house to save my family. It was something to see - the line of fire engines, the color guard, walking all the way from the funeral home to the church. I was proud of our friends on the fire department and proud that our church had a small part in offering shuttle service to the funeral.
There is another funeral going on today too. A friend who is a police officer is burying his father today down in Kentucky. That is where my husband and youngest son are. It will be a surprise for our friend who has no idea they are making the 3 hour trip.
Today I have the house to myself (I LOVE that) and I really should be working. Tomorrow is a team meeting - a really important one, maybe the most important one of the year and here I am needing to prepare for it and I really just want to take a nap instead.
OK, well guess I'll put some coffee on and get busy. Better make it strong coffee. :)
