Veterans Day 2014

veteransday_usa
Today is the day we honor,
the noble and the brave,
the men and woman who dedicated their lives,
and the sacrifices that they have made.

When America had an urgent need,
they were the first to raise their hand,
without thinking twice about it,
they were proud to take a stand.

Some came back from war with battle scars,
others in flagged draped coffins,
even though their flesh may have left,
their spirits will never be forgotten.

They unselfishly and knowingly,
put their lives on the line,
so when you see a veteran, thank them,
cause without them, freedom would have died.

Happy Birthday to my son, Colt!  I can’t believe you are 22 already. Twenty-two years ago I held you in my arms as a newborn baby.   Now, distance may physically separate us but you are always in my thoughts and forever in my heart!

I love you very much. You are the best son any mother could ask for. I am very proud of you forever and always.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLT!!!!  I LOVE YOU!
