just sharing

So tonight my husband and I watched the extreme home make over show. I turned to Rusty and said " do do not know if I could leave the safety of my home, and leave my children to go into harms way"

Rusty said " Marines do it all the time so that you do not have to"

Wow how true is that! So to all of our service men and women out there I would like to say thank you. To everyone else I would like to say that the next time you see a veteran, you should say thank you. That left home so that you did not have to.

Well first thing in the morning I have to take the car down to get new tires put on it. I so hate having to go and do things like this! But I guess I do not have a choice.

Did everyone see the pictures of the quilt! I am so happy that I got it finished today. I must say that it is bigger then it looks, my daughter just is not tall enough to hold it!

It is time to head to bed!

Dear Kelli,
hugs! I'm totally with you on this one!
They are awesome individuals! I know one or tow. Whenever I see someone witha veterans' cap on I go over and thank them for all that they have done and shake their hand. Gee it's hard to tell who is more moved, me or them!
Great entry Kelli!
I love the quilt too!

My cousin is a marine who served in Iraq.  He is an awesome individual who joined the marines because of 9/11.  He would have done the same thing that marine did had he been one at that time.  I believe marines are a special breed and I keep bugging him to introduce me to some of his single marine friends, j/k...or am i?
