Graduation is SUNDAY!!!! My baby boy is almost done with high school! I don't know what I'll do when he goes off to college in August!
My thoughts and prayers go out to all those who lost a friend or loved one while fighting for our country. This is the first Memorial Day since the end of the war in Iraq. It is sad to think that we lost 4,487 men and women during the war. I can't begin to imagine what it feels like to loose a son or daughter this way, as so many have. My heart goes out to you, also!
Sending my very best to you and your son - it is a very emotional momentous occasion. <3
Amen to your prayers for all the brave women and men who gave their all for our country.
