This week is a very important time around the world has so many of us celebrate and honour the lives of those men and women who have fought during both World Wars, and for those of us from Newfoundland, Beaumont Hamel, and Vimey Ridge. Also for those who have been on Peace Keeping Missions, to Afghanistan, and in other countries abroad. There are others I am sure, and please forgive me for not listing them all, but my respect is for everyone who has played a part in war. To all of us paying Tribute this Remembrance Day, or to our American friends - Veteran's Day, we take this time to say "Thank You" for paying the price and standing in the gap to
provide many with freedom and security. To know that there will be numerous people shedding tears of sorrow for someone they lost in the war wither that be family, friend or even foe, is a heart breaking thing to think about. None the less, we shall Always Remember!
My prayers are with you all has you go about your daily duties and especially for those who may be deployed at any moment. May God's angels take charge over you and keep you out of harm's way. To the families left behind. I pray for you God's strength and mercy has you try your best to keep things together and make things so normal has can be for your families. You are my Heroes too!
Please check out the sidebar here to view some amazing footage of days gone bye and some not to long ago. Be ready to shed a tear or two. Really listen to these two songs. They are so powerful and true. They are indeed a great tribute to our military men and women.
I wanted to take this time to say a Big Thank You to my own family members who have been on several missions. Some just returning from Afganstan and others who are in the Reserves and getting ready to join the military later. They are more brave than what I could ever be and for this bravery I am honoured to call them my family. Below are a few photos of these great people. My brother-law has been in the Canadian Military for over 20 plus years and now is son and son-inlaw are following in his footsteps. Also my twin neice and nephew are in the Reserves and are in training for future military endevours.
Thanks so much for dropping bye. Your visit here is appreciated. Just want to encourage you this week to hug someone a little tighter, kiss someone a little longer. And always remember that a frown is a smile turned upside down. So keep smiling!
Love & Prayers Always
