...Veteran's Day...........2012



Hello sunshines................so......as I sit to type this special post..........in honor............I realize that................not a day goes by that I do not think of our military men and women, wherever they may be.......... and their families that must miss them so very much!

...............as you can see by my sidebar......I am always remembering them......daily.....and I wish that for each and every one of you as well.....to please keep them in your thoughts and prayers..............

....having worked with the United States Air Force for many decades........you come to realize so very much about these unsung hero's..............their families..........their hopes and dreams!

..................we are free to be................free to be.......do.......say............live.........as we wish..............only because of them....they fight for our freedom.............

................please take time this weekend...the long holiday of celebration....as you BBQ and have your family get-together..............................to remember them.......the ones that served and are currently serving........as........they are fighting for us..........and their own families...................

............as you celebrate.......please say a little prayer  for our fallen hero's and the ones serving......that they come home to their own....in one piece.......because the harsh reality is.............some do not................

...........to my "other family"................I honor each and every one of you every day and thank you for your undying  dedication to our great country, these United States,  and the "gift" you give us each day!.......thank you........

.........God Bless America and the courageous men and women of all our military branches......


................with love....................Kat
