Thank you....

Thank You! I would like to take the time today to thank every soldier who has put his/her life on the line for my freedom. Your sacrifices have allowed us all to enjoy this life which we hold most precious.... I am at a loss for words really...
So Thank You
You make me

Beautifully said - in pictures and in words. I'm here once again from Michele's.

If only we would all take a bit more time to recognize that freedom doesn't just happen. Rather, it is fought for by those who sacrifice it all on our behalf.

Thanks to you for reminding us of this. No matter where we live, we owe them a massive debt.

hi, thanks for visiting me yesterday! i have a friend who recently came back from a year serving in iraq. and he is having a hard time adjusting back to life here...the little tiny things that people obsess about is hard for him to grasp now. it's nice that you took the time to thank the soldiers! have a happy memorial day weekend!

What a great tribute! Thanks for putting it up on your blog for all of us bloggers to see! :o) I'm here via Michele and I think you are at my blog right now visiting!
By the way, I grew up outside of Houston, TX and I noticed that's where you live. My husband grew up in Richmond, TX and I grew up in Katy, TX. Are you anywhere close to either towns?
I'll be back to visit on my own!

G'day guppyman,

Respect and value your Memorial Day from afar. We have Anzac day in Australia.

A time to reflect and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Take care

Exactly. A three day weekend is nice, but I think people forget the purpose of the day. I am off to our town parade!

Visiting from Michele's.
