Happy Memorial Day

Home of the Brave
by Roger Robicheau

Through the feel of war they brave this day
How proud they stand, their unselfish way

Our soldiers bear what we cannot see
They assure our right to live life free

Each trained will face an unknown fate
Our support they need, don’t hesitate

Just imagine how this land would be
Without their courage - catastrophe

All the liberties we have grown to know
Would not exist, this life would go

Find a thankfulness within your mind
Speak gratitude for our bravest kind

Have the willingness to show you care
For fallen heroes, hold back no tear

Reach out to God with his guiding light
For our troops do pray, both day and night

America raise your flags to wave
For we truly are 'home of the brave'

Happy Mother's Day

I am lucky enough to be spending Mother's Day in Las Vegas visiting my boyfriend's lovely mother. The weather is beautiful here right now. I plan on spending the next few days laying by the pool with a good book, and maybe I'll do a little gambling. Here is a pretty poem I found about mothers. Happy Mother's Day to everyone!

Wonderful Mother
God made a wonderful mother,
A mother who never grows old;
He made her smile of the sunshine,
And He moulded her heart of pure gold;
In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks fair roses you see;
God made a wonderful mother,
And He gave that dear mother to me.

May Day

I just realized it was May Day.I remember when I was a little girl we celebrated by leaving a little basket of flowers on our neighbor's porches and ringing their doorbell. Such a sweet custom. I wonder why people don't do that anymore. Next year I most certainly will. Happy May Day to everybody!
