Someone to Love

My Grandfather served in WWI, and years later, when he was old and no longer well, was taken care of by kind nurses and doctors at our local VA hospital. It was there that he passed, blessed by a loving family that surrounded him in his final moments. Some years later, my Gramma and I made Valentine's for veterans to send to the local VA hospital. Now that she has made her home in Heaven, I plan to carry on with my own little one of making Valentine's for veterans for his first Valentine's Day. There are so many who have served and given their lives for our country that are unappreciated and unloved, spending their days in hospices or VA hospitals. Please join us in taking a few hours out of your day to love on someone that is unloved, even someone that may not deserve it. The above photos are of some folks I don't know, I just picked up their images the other day at a local antique store, I wonder what their stories are.

Baby Love

"We were given: Two hands to hold. Two legs to walk. Two eyes to see. Two ears to listen. But why only one heart? Because the other was given to someone else. For us to find." - Author Unknown



So, thanks to one of my wonderful sis-in-laws, I've started to become much more interested in the blog world. One of the blogs had a challenge going for the month of January to get organized.. well, I most certainly need that. I think I'm going to start it.. now, I can't promise any serious commitment, but I think I'm going to go through the 21 days and put a little effort into getting organized.. if you'd like to join me, here's the site.. If you have a favorite blog to share, or just one that's seemed interesting lately, post it! I'd love to see what interests you. Have a super day!
