~With a Thankful Heart~

This handsome young man is my Cousin's Son Matthew, he lives in Georgia and is currently deployed.       This Sign stands in front of their family home. 
My Husband, Father, Sister, Brother, Nephew, Cousin, Father in law and many dear friends have and are serving our Country, I am so proud of you. Not a day goes by that I do not pray for their safety and the safety of your loved ones.
We are blessed to have these brave and strong soldiers in our live.

Dearest Elizabeth and Gary,

Thanks for putting this post on! You should read my post from yesterday, the 29th and also today's in that sequence.
There still are people that do appreciate our brave service men and women! We at least do and we pray and hope that the young generation will learn about what FREEDOM stands for! At schools and colleges they don't teach much about our proud history anymore, let alon patriotism.

Lots of love,

Mariette

I understand how they feel, as my son is a Marine too. They really band together! I'm so appreciative for all of our military and their families!

Miss Jean said...

Oh, I love that sign!!!!! Our son just got home from over "there." and we are so thankful for each and every one of our troops who serve.

I was a Marine Corp wife for over 20 years. A part of me will always be. This was such a nice post and thank you so much for you comment on mine. You always say the kindest things to me and I appreciate it. Sandy is doing alright. The worst is yet to come for her...and it frightens me.
She has so much support from our family (which is huge)but I wish very much I lived closer.
Much love,
Mona

Hi Elizabeth and Gary...
Been catching up with you both this Saturday Morning...Hoping my comments come through.
Blogger and I have been having a stand off!
Yeah to our service men.....
I stood up for my husband in Church last Sunday when our pastor asked all the service men Present and past to rise to their feet.
He was a Navy man...
Many people remarked afterwords that they loved how I stood in the gap for him and more widows should do that. (that's the first time I wrote the word widow...I don't care for that much)....
anyway, love the sign and God Bless our men and women who have our country in their hearts.
xoxo~Kathy @

Love this sign !! When my son was deployed I had a big yellow ribbon on my oak tree. Really, several neighbors would stop and ask me "what's that for" . I had people tell me they would send their kids to Canada first. Most did not even know about yellow ribbons. It makes me proud of all the young people that are serving. Its not an easy job. Please thank him for his service. Jules
