Lest We Forget

Let Freedom Ring
Large or small
Our flag stands for all of us
We are so fortunate to live here
In a country that has freedoms
That others still seek

Today my oldest son and I put flowers 
on his grandparents grave..... I had not
been there before and I found it amazing
that his Grandmother's grave just says
"His Wife" .... Really?
How about "Beloved wife, mother and blessed friend"? 

Thanks Mary for helping me raise my wonderful two sons.

Amen and Amen. If we ever forget to be grateful, we will lose what we have.

I will never forget all those who gave their life before me so that I may enjoy freedom...
