"I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day.
I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it. We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did. "
In memory and honor of those who have fought and died to keep our country free.
There are several ways to thank a soldier, but this is the first time I've heard about Emergen-C's Operation Gratitude.
What could be easier then to write a letter of thanks to a soldier who is serving far far away? Can you take a minute and do this one little thing? Emergen-C will add packets of their vitamin mix drink to the letters forwarded to this project.
Little bits of fabric sewn together with care ~ one is rough and ready the other dainty and fair. Seams are sewn together with love and tenderness ~ Mother's love surrounds them with prayers and hugs caress. The love and care of Mother leave footprints on the heart ~ of children that she nurtures until with wings depart. So many days and nights filled with love and care ~ one day released into the world she prays from her rocking chair.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands ~ Psalm 19:1
