While my husband was in Iraq a little over a year ago, his unit received cards from OWH. He was lucky and was able to grab 3 cards to send home to us. He sent one to each of our children and one to me. Even though we chatted via web cam and instant messenger, there was nothing like getting a card from him with his hand writing inside. So THANK YOU to everyone who has ever donated their time and talent to this group. I have experienced 1st hand how wonderful a simple card can make a soldier's family member feel.
Also, thank you to all the servicemen and women out there and the sacrifices you make and have made. And I wanted to take a moment to honor the 2 fallen soldiers of my husbands unit. Thank you for your ultimate sacrifice Sgt. Henry and Spec. Menke. You will never be forgotten.
Ok, enough jabbering... Let's get to the card! The theme for this hop was Red, White and Blue and "Missing You". Well...that was easy! I just received some of the new 4th of July themed papers from We R Memory Keepers. All I had to do was write in the sentiment on the flag banners with a black pen.
Now on to the next blog. Please jump on over to Brittany's beautiful blog. Thanks for stopping by and taking time this weekend to remember what it's all about.
Have a good one!
