My Favorite Veteran

Bet you can't guess who that must be. :) I couldn't let another minute go by today without thanking those who have served and are serving this very moment so that I can be free. I have listened to Poppi so many times tell of the HORRIFIC things he went through for ME. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. He was interviewed just a couple of weeks ago by a middle school student, and I can't wait to see the video. He doesn't speak much anymore because even after more than 60 years, he STILL has nightmares when he goes through it all again. I just can't imagine!
This pic isn't the best, but it makes me smile.
Thank you PoPpI!

Today is also Ally's 9th birthday. Seems like just yesterday I remember thinking I could never love another child as much as I did you the day you were born! Happy Birthday my SWEET SWEET girl! :)
