remembrance..


as we all enjoy our holiday weekend, let us remember why this weekend exists.
my wonderful father sent me a lovely email yesterday that truly creates awareness
to remember the veterans who have lost their lives for our freedom.
thank you to all of those in service and let us honor each and every one of them.

have a great weekend... xx

I am always reminded of their sacrifice... being that my father gave his life in the Korean War. He was just 19 years old and my mother was still carrying me.

We owe our soldiers so much appreciation and thanks for all their sacrifices... ~Terri

I'm a military brat, and this weekend was always a big deal in our lives. Parades, paper poppies on lapels and stories told of fallen comrades.

God bless the troops, alive and dead.

Amen Sister!
Pam, I am so sorry I didn't make it into your store while in Seattle. I flew so long on Thurs, my future DIL that I stayed with lives in Tumwater and I honestly didn't want to drive that far. NEXT TIME for sure!
Blessings,

It is so vital that we remember the meaning of a holiday....In my business, it is always such a stressful time as our clients become obsessed with having their houses ready for Memorial Week End...We need to take the time to absorb the meaning of the losses and pray for the ones that faces death every day. Thank you for the beautiful meaningful tribute
