Veteran's Day

Honoring and thanking those who serve, as well as those who wait.
 
 
This is a photo of our son when he served in Ghana.  After returning home, he talked alot about the children there.
 
I met a remarkable veteran this week, James G. Littlepage.  It was a surprising interaction.  As our conversation was closing, he asked if he could recite a poem, then another, and just one more.  All three of the poems touched my heart.  Two brought tears to my eyes.
 
Jim has been honored with such awards as 1st Place - Patriotic Poetry, Veteran's Creative Arts Festival.  His book is titled Of Fire, Wind & Spirit.  If you are curious about this poet, visit his website by clicking  HERE .
 
Please pause in gratitude this week for our service men and women, as well as those who love them.  If there is a veteran close by, please remember to say "Thank You".

  1. Just signed Jim's page, and contacted him for a special Christmas present--his CD "Of Fire, Wind & Spirit." It will be given to my grandsons' great grandmother whose fireman husband passed away.
    Thank you for sharing your heart and Jim's. God bless, my friend!

  2. Just lovely. There is no veteran close by at the moment, so I say thank you to your son, and all those who waited for him to return. Blessings
