On this Memorial Day Weekend - My thoughts and Prayers go out to all Service Men and Women...past and present and to their families and loved ones. I also take this time to remember my Grandfather who served in the Coast Guard, my Father, the Navy, and my youngest sister Andrea, PFC Harden, who currently serves in the Army National Guard with the 29th BSB and is scheduled to be deployed to Afghanistan in 2013. Her husband is SSG with the 25th ID and just returned from his deployment to Afghanistan.

They are such a charming couple, aren't they.
This quote is pertinent today as is describes not only our service men and women, but their families, too. "Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perserverance". This quote was typed on a piece of white paper and taped to a column in my sisters' barracks when I attended her boot camp at Fort Jackson, S.C. several years ago. This describes so simply how we meet our many challenges in life. As artists - we preservere in creating...it's an ongoing process.

And I also have a special Amazing Crafting Products coupon for you too! CLICK HERE to view this fun project! Have a wonderful day : ) Sb
