Blonde moment

And the silver spoon.

Thank God for...

Thank God for Lyndon on this Memorial Day, and others like him who paid the ultimate price in Armed Service.

I never met Lyndon... he was Josh's brother's best friend; and our paths just never happened to cross when I visited California. He joined the Army after high school; and died in Iraq shortly after his 21st birthday. While Josh was there, he happened to find out that Lyndon died not far from the base where Josh was stationed, and that was hard for him.

Eventually, people forget specific individuals who paid such a price; so I have resolved not to forget Lyndon.

Don't forget blood shed for you.

    Last year at this time, Josh wasn't even home yet. My, how things have changed! Wish him a very happy Memorial Day and a huge thank you from us for his service.

    I know! Isn't it the greatest that Josh is home! LOVE IT! And he wore his dress greens to church yesterday. He looked prettier then everyone else there!
