God bless America

Memorial Day is a special day that all Americans should observe.
I visited Normandy, France a few years ago.  Standing in that cemetery was a very moving experience.  In all directions for as far as you could see there were white crosses naming our American boys who gave their lives to help make our world a safe place. Each cross had the name and state of each one.  I cried as I walked through all those crosses.  I thought about all the families of most of the men buried there that never got to see their head stones.  Such a great sacrifice that everyone needs to remember!
God Bless America and those that keep it free!

I hope every American took the time to think about and pray for all the brave men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we can be free!

  1. Barbara, What a great post! We can't thank soldiers enough for their sacrifice. On a related American note, I've emailed you a couple times about participating in a blog tour with our new American Made Brand fabrics. I suspect my emails have gone to your junkmail, so thought I'd reach out here. Would love to hear from you! Take care!
