Happy Veteran's Day!

Veterans are so near to my heart. My mom's dad served in the Air Force as a Brigadier General, and he has such a love for the military and our country.

In honor of this day, here is a recent picture of me, my mom, Evy and Kurt meeting a sweet, sweet man who served our country, Mr. Bill Barnes. You can read the story in this post.

Thank you, Mr. Barnes!

O beautiful for heroes proved

In liberating strife.

Who more than self their country loved,

And mercy more than life!

America! America!

May God thy gold refine

Till all success be nobleness

And every gain divine!

Thank you soooo very much for this post! My daddy passed away 2 1/2 years ago when Kelcee was 5 mths old and he was a Veteran! He served in the Air Force during Vietnam!
I visited his grave site today and I needed a little lift up! You totally just did that! Thanks so much! :0)
