I was tagged by sweet Kate over at Our Red House to participate in a MEME to take a photos of our views from our back and front doors. Ahem...share with the world our views, but honestly, looking out my back door is not so pretty these days as we recently had some horribly windy days and my garden is looking quite wind-whipped in the back.
My dear sweet husband has been tending to our front yard and this is the view of our front from our front door. Little flags are out for Memorial Day for a little touch of American spirit. As a military mother, my heart strings pull tightly on this day - as well as July 4th, however not a day goes by without thinking of our troops and to those who have given so unselfishly of themselves to serve our wonderful Country. I am so very, very proud of our son for his sacrifices, his bravery and his spirit. He told me this when he enlisted..."Mom, I need to serve our Country and to help others." I get tears in my eyes when I think about those words and miss him each and every day.
For all of the families who have loved ones in our military - be it friends or family - God Bless you. A gigantic THANK YOU and God Bless to all of you who are giving of yourselves to fight for our Freedom and to serve this Big Red, White and Blue!!!
