    That is lovely. Thank you. My son is serving in Afghanistan this Christmas. He is now 47 years old but I still enjoy the memories of all the Christmas times together through the years. I pray daily for his safe return as well as all his peers serving and protecting us here at home. Merry Christmas to all.

Veterans Day - God Bless Our Armed Forces!

Monday, November 11, 2013




It is Veterans Day. We honor those who have so bravely served this country. America is founded on the principle of freedom, justice, and liberty for all. Our nation's soldiers serve every day to protect our country and its ideals. Take a sacred moment to remember those who sacrifice their lives every moment to achieve peace and democracy.





ďOn this Veterans Day, let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much so that we can live free." - Dan Lipinski





The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude." - Jeff Miller





Our veterans accepted the responsibility to defend America and uphold our values when duty called." - Bill Shuster





Honoring Our Veterans today and always! Make Every Day Veterans Day! God Bless Our Armed Forces (past, present and future)!

  Hi Monika,

I am with you on this one...I have succeeded in losing 80 pounds, sometimes
only a few tenths at a time but it is a pursuit of better health and I am sticking
like glue to my food plan...adding exercise as my back will allow....

Hope all is well with you and your family....

Lotsa hugs,
DarleneK
