In loving memory of all those lost serving our country.  We should all remember their sacrifice and always keep them in our thoughts  not only on Memorial Day but every day.  God bless America.

To day is Armed Forces Day.   Let's remember the men and women who have served in time of war or peace.  God bless them all.   God  bless America. 

In my family many served:
my dad was a WW1 veteran, his brother was a WW11 veteran, my husband was a Korean veteran, my brother was in the navy and I had many cousins who also served and were all in the navy.  Most of  them  are no longer with us but I am so proud that they saw their duty to serve their country and they did it without question.  They all came home safe and lived a full and happy life. My brother and one cousin are still with us the others have gone on to a better place.  God bless them all.

                                      How God created mother

God took the fragrance of a flower, the majesty of a tree, the gentleness of morning dew, the calm of a quiet sea, the beauty of a twilight hour, the soul of a starry night, the laughter of the rippling brook, the grace of a bird in flight.   Then God fashioned from these things a creation like no other, and when his masterpiece was through he called it simply....MOTHER

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts.  A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.
                            ~Sophia Loren~

The bond between mothers and their children is one defined by love.  As a mother's prayers for her children are unending, so are the wisdom, grace and strength they provide to their children.
                      ~President George W. Bush~

Any women can be a mother but it takes someone special to be called "MOM".

"It's May!  It's  May! The lusty month of May!   Those dreary vows that everyone makes, everyone breaks.  Everyone makes divine mistakes!   The lusty month of May!"
        ~Lerner and Lowe~

"Hebe's here, May is here!  The air is fresh and sunny; and the miser-bees are busy hoarding golden honey."
   ~Thomas Bailey Aldrich~

"When April steps aside for May, like diamonds all the rain-drops glisten; fresh violets open every day.  To some new bird each hour we listen."
       ~Lucy Larcom~

"Sweet May hath come to love us, flowers, trees, their blossoms don; and though the blue heavens above us the very clouds move on."
