In Honor

6 panels of the flag $1/panel, 2 grommets and 2 nails

of those who lost their lives 8 years ago. Divine was just a couple of weeks old and very colicky. I remember having just moved to Texas with this brand new baby, not knowing how to be a mother, not knowing this new city. We were at the grocery store just a few days after 9/11 when an older gentleman came up to us and our incessantly crying infant. "That," referring to the crying, "is a beautiful sound after all that has happened to this nation." May we remember those who gave their lives and pray for those willing to do so serving this country now.


  1. Thanks for the beautiful reminder. I absolutely love what the older gentleman said to you and Divine.

  2. This is so poignant I love that you are showing your faith in our country.
    And teaching your children the same.

  3. Thank you Katy, from a daughter of a father who has served this country in WWII and a mother of a son who has served this country in Bosnia and Iraq. Hugs, Tina Jones, Brendon's mom

  4. what a beautiful tribute...we will never forget!

  5. How wonderful to see you show pride in your country!


Be a lamb & tell me what's on your mind.
