On a different note, on this Veteran's Day, I want to express my Thanks to our men and women who have served or are serving in the Armed Forces. Thank You for your service! Thanks to those wives/husbands/kids/parents/siblings/grandparents who are standing strong on the home front in support of their loved ones overseas! I want to personally express my gratitude to my father (Army - Vietnam), my father-in-law (an immigrant to America who served in the Navy during Vietnam), my brother (Navy), and various family members and friends who have served our country during peacetime and war. I'll close with this picture of my brother - who later served in the Navy - saluting the flag while my father was serving as an Army Flight Surgeon in Vietnam. I honor my dad today for his service, and my mom for standing strong at home while raising three kids and giving birth to a fourth while Dad was overseas. They are some of the millions of people who have served our country, kept us safe, and defended our freedom. Thank You!
Another week, another You Capture assignment over @I Should Be Folding Laundry. The theme this week was "serene" and I was very excited because I captured some rain shots that were very "serene" to my eyes. I love rainy days, and some of my favorite pictures have been taken in the rain. This last week, while talking on the phone, my eyes suddenly focused on the raindrops that were hanging on our crab apple tree in the front yard - stunning beauty. I hope you see what I was trying to capture.
C.S. Lewis once said, “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." Dream BIG. After going "there and back again," The Hubs & I have created a home that is full of books, stimulating conversation, and the laughter of our five kids. We have been the recipients of Amazing Grace, and our life goals can be summed up in four words: Love God, love people.
