As the Christmas holiday draws near, I simply want to extend to all of you:
Hope Santa gets you all exactly what you wish for!
May you have the best holiday season yet!
Thanks for stopping by – have a great day!
In memory of my USAF Veteran Dad, and for all of the Veterans and active military who courageously put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms and serve our citizenship in times of peace, disaster, and need: Thank you!
Note about the photo:
This was taken in a cemetery nearby. It is a statue that marks the grave of this family’s only son (only child!) who was killed in WWII – and it is his likeness. What a beautiful (and sad) tribute.
Remember to shake the hand of a Veteran or active-duty Military person and thank them for their service — not just today but feel free to do it on any day…
And, since it’s getting to be that time of year, please remember service members when filling out your Christmas Card list:
Holiday Mail for Heroes Campaign (Christmas Letters)
Each year the American Red Cross provides assistance to more than 2 million service members and many of our nation’s 24 million veterans. We support military families, military and veterans hospitals and provide emergency communications across the globe. And once a year, we get the joy of delivering holiday cards to veterans, military families and active-duty service members at hospitals and installations around the world. The cards and personal messages, sent by tens of thousands of Americans, provide a welcome “touch of home” for our troops during the holiday season.
Thanks for stopping by – have a great day
Here’s to the new year…
May it bring more joy and success!
To our dreams…
May we never stop believing in them!
To our friends, loved ones, associates & colleagues…
May we take the time to let them know how much it means to us to have them in our lives!
And to new beginnings…
Let us start fresh ~ right now ~ to make this the very best year ever!
A very Happy New Year to all of us!
As 2013 comes to an end I want to take this time to thank you all for your support and encouragement!
You’ve all been right here with me as I have shared my journey through photographs and words over the past several months…
and I hope you stick around for many more!
May all of you be blessed with a 2014 filled with peace, prosperity and love.
Enjoy your New Years Eve, wherever and however you celebrate it!
Having said that:
Please don’t drink and drive — or let anyone else do it either!
