Happy Veterans Day! For Beth, Lori and Elisabeth!

To my sweet blog Veteran's and all those men and women who have offered their lives to protect our country I offered my deepest heartfelt gratitude and thanks! You are the ones I admire the most for your love of this country and desire to protect us all.  I am the granddaughter of a WWII veteran and lucky enough to have had the opportunity to know him and love him for many years.  My sweet Gramps passed away earlier this year and I was unable to attend his funeral but over the years on Veteran's Day and Memorial Days I called him to thank him and let him know how much I love him.  Now that he is no longer here I am passing that love and respect to you my sweet blogger friends.  I know of three of you that have served our country and that I have had the pleasure to connect with you so I ask that any of you who read this today please go and wish these wonderful ladies a glorious day and thank them for their service!

Thank you again ladies for your service and giving me the opportunity to get to know you!

Hugs and Blessings

UPDATE: Here are others who have let me know that they have also served our country proudly and if I have the pleasure of finding more I will link them!


  1. What a special Grandfather you had - and a true blessing that you got to know him. Unfortunately I never knew either of my Grandfathers...a true tragedy. How sweet of you to give a shout out to our blog friends who have/are serving our country!

  2. Thank you so much for posting your memories and your thanks. I had the privilege of serving in the Army alongside my dad. That created a bond that will never be broken.

  3. Aw, thank you so much, Kirsten! What a kind thing to do!!
    I wish I could have known your grandfather.. those WWII vets truly are the greatest generation.. love them soooo much!

    Hugs to you and yours.. it was an honor to serve people just like you!!

  4. Oh Cindy I am sorry you didn't get to know your grandfathers and to be perfectly honest and give a little more background my Gramps was my mothers stepfather and he never had to be the grandfather he was for me and I am so blessed that he was. He was the only one I ever had and I know I couldn't have had any better!

    Sharon~ That is a treasure in itself to be able to serve with your dad how awesome for you!

    Kallen~ He was a hoot too! You are right there was something truly unique about that generation of men and we are all blessed to have known them!


I so love visitors so please let me know you were here so I don't get lonely! Cyber Hugs!
