Thanking those that serve here and abroad

This is a canvas that I did some time ago. The picture is of my son home on leave. He went to his nephews school to talk to the children.
Afterwards one of his nephews asked him to teach him to salute. I loved this picture. It was just a candid shot of a real moment.

As for the canvas. I layered three sheets of paper. On the right side are three little tags. They have little stamps, family and hope. The tag on the left is where I journaled. (short and sweet, the picture tells the story) The flag is a Jolee. (sorry not sure of the sp.)
Above that is the coin that my son gave me when he returned from

It is so hard to have a son/daughter in the military esp. when they are in the Middle East. Mine did two tours. Each one lasting a year. It seemed like my world shut down during those times. So much to worry about. I know several of my blogging friends have loved ones overseas. I wish I could reach through the screen and give you a big (((((HUG))))) but I can't. I will pray for you and your soldier.

Happy Memorial Day.

Dear Debby, You took the words right out of my mouth. My dear son is in Afghanistan right now. I posted an email describing the exhausting conditions in his camp as my tribute. I would love for you to link this up to my tea party so friends could visit your post.

What a heartwarming photo! How precious.
