Veterans Day Tribute

Lace Highlights_edited-1

A humble tribute and thank you to all those of you who served or are serving now.

 No words adequately THANK YOU for the ultimate sacrifice.

Can not convey my deep admiration for your courage.

(One of our finest, a serviceman, shared his poem about being in the service with me in commenting on this post and I want to share it with you.  It is as beautiful as its author.  Please read and have tissues in hand.)

      Dear Jason,

      It is such an honor that you visited my blog and sent me the link to your beautifully moving poem. It brought tears. I have nothing but admiration for you, and will add you and your family to my prayer list. Hope you will soon be home with your family, safe and sound!! I shared your poem on Twitter, Stumble Upon and Tumblr and, since I could not reblog your poem, I added a link to it on today’s post. If you want to see, here is the edited version:

      Blessings of safety to you and your family and a profound thank you for all you have done (and to your buddies, too), God bless you all,


      P.S. Please forgive me if this is a duplicate comment. I sent it yesterday but my blog says it was still awaiting approval so am sending again.

      • Ellen, can’t thank you enough for all your kind words. I’m a bit overwhelmed by the positive feedback. The easiest things to write are the ones that come straight from the heart. Thank you for sharing it.
