Remembering Brave Hearts~

Red for brave hearts that burn for liberty
White for the peace they earn making men free
Stars for the heavens above; Blue for the deep,
Where, in their country's love
Heroes shall sleep. ~William Rice

Wishing you a safe and happy Memorial Day!

A lovely gift~

   I think of thee when soft and wide
   the evening spreads her robes of light.
   And like a young and timid bride
   sits blushing in the arms of night.
   And when the moon's sweet
   crescent springs
   It's light o'er heaven's deep
   waveless sea, and stars are forth
   like blessed things,
   I think of thee!  I think of thee!

   Hello sweet friends~ My I can't believe how the time is going by!  I've had quite a bit going on here these past weeks and still busy days to follow.  I just wanted to let you know that I'm still here and will be dropping by to visit you soon.  The poem I've posted is used with permission from a sweet friend...Susan, from Miss Maddies..please visit her blog, it is truly lovely.  I love this just speaks to me!  In the past week, we've lost a special uncle, a long time friend, and a young sheriff deputy here in our little town, who is leaving behind a wife and three very young children.  With a heavy heart I am reminded that each day is a gift and sweet memories too...
