Always there to show what America is about. Freedom. We are so lucky to have the freedoms that we do in America. Everyone knows what I am talking about. We all stop to realize how fortunate we are to be Americans. Of course it wouldn't be possible if not for the men & women that have given the ultimate sacrifice for us. That is what today is about.

We get so caught up in our own everyday worlds that sometimes we tend to forget the sacrifices so many men, women and families have made in order to keep our country free for so many years. Today is about honoring those that have given everything they possibly could for freedom.

May God be with those that have lost loved ones and also with those who have loved ones still fighting for our freedoms. God be with those who are serving right now to maintain the freedom of the United States of America. There is no other place like it on Earth. I am proud to be an American.

I believe everyone who lives in a 'free' country feels the same way. I certainly do.

Beautiful post! I just "found" your blog again after reading through some comments on My Southern Heart...the Stories blog and I'm glad I did. I hope all is well you...

We started our "official" farm blog at: www.campbellkidsfarm.com which you might enjoy. No horses, but we are getting 5 little Boer goat doelings. I'm so excited!

Blessings,
Dianne
