Hi everyone! I wanted to participate in the OWH blog hophttp://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/ but my daughter is here for a visit! I am writing this quick note so I can also post my card! This card is made for my brother. He is now in Afghanastan and I miss him very much. He has an 8 year old daughter that just lights up my life. I know its hard on the both of them when daddy is deployed. My son is also in the army and is back from his first tour in Iraq. He will be deployed again by the end of the year.
I never thought much about Memorial day until my son joined the army and I joined the proud band of Military Moms and dads. When I knew my baby was in harms way I just was so terrified and proud at the same time. I knew what he was doing and what it was for. I have never been so proud in my life. Then my brother followed in line and joined and now I am just so proud of them both. No words will ever be able to tell them how much I appreciate everything they do. Now when I see a soldier out someplace I try to make a point to walk up to him or her and tell them Thank you for all they do!
So with that said and before I start crying here is my card and a picture of my son! Enjoy!!
