with heartfelt gratitude {Memorial Day 2011}

'Thank you' doesn't even begin to cover it. It seems like such a small word to express such strong feelings of gratitude for the men and women who put their lives on the line each and every day to protect our freedom. {Photograph taken at the Pink Palace Museum in Memphis, TN}

I am proud to be an American and I am forever grateful to the service men and women who have paid the ultimate price to keep our country safe.
Both my grandpa Pedro and Lance's grandpa Woodrow, who Hudson Rowe is named after, were members of our military. My grandpa was a soldier in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Lance's grandpa was an officer in the U.S. Air Force. Such a legacy of courage and honor... {Photo taken at the Pink Palace Museum in Memphis, TN}

To the families of our men and women in uniform, thank YOU, for the sacrifices you too make each and every day while your loved ones defend our country. I can not imagine how difficult it must be to have your loved ones away, especially away from little ones.
May God continue to protect our military as they protect our nation and the values of freedom and democracy that we often take for granted. Thank you for your courage, thank you for your dedication, Thank you for your loyalty, Thank you for your selflessness, Thank you for your strength, Thank you for your patriotism, Thank you for your faith...THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEGACY.

Praying over you...and remembering.
