November was quite a month in many respects.   As I had worked away on commitments to the Daily Outsider, finished off some Random Thoughts which was released yesterday, I decided to begin the new Month with some thoughts on the passing of our 41st President, George H.W. Bush.

As I reflected upon his life, I remember the first time he reflected upon the Thousands Points of Light that epitomized a life of service that spanned over 70 years.    I noted when I was on Twitter last night how he in many respects influenced a life of service that I have tried to lead--and what a life it has been in many ways.   I have had the good fortune to share my adventures (and sometimes misadventures) here over the past 12 months and I am grateful to the Almighty to have granted me this privilege to do so.

I almost broke down in tears when I received this last night and released it to my Personal Social Media Feed as a very small token of thanks to our Home Town Mayor, Elaine Geneaway and my hometown:  

It is humbling that a simple ordinary face in the crowd gets such recognition.    I can only pray that the almighty grants me the privilege to do what I can to make a difference.
