Memorial Day-A Time to Remember


Today, we celebrate Memorial Day. The picture above are remembrances of a time so many years ago, when as a young girl, my boyfriend was drafted into the Army and five months later was in Vietnam.(we married 15 days before he left, we were 20 years old) Thankfully, he returned safe and sound. But, for all of us he left behind who loved him, a black cloud hung over us for the entire time he was gone. Both my Dad and his father who both served during WWII had an especially hard time. I was lonely and scared.
So, today, amidst the hustle and bustle of the first holiday of the season. take a moment to remember all those families that are separated today. How they must go about their everyday lives with the added strain of constant worry. Remember too, those that did not come home, or who are badly injured and struggling to survive, and their families.
Today's card is a Tri Shutter Card. I got the tutorial at http://craftiblog.wordpress.com/2009/05/05/2009-05-05-tri-shutter-card-tutorial-full-card-front/. It's a great card to put together, and it's easy to make. It folds flat for mailing.
In honor of Memorial Day.................Until later......

Hi Sue,

What a beautiful, meaningful card. I can only hope and pray that our country can remain the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Thanks to you and Riok for your service and sacrifice. And there are so many other loved ones who gave and many are still giving.

God bless America! Terry
