Wreaths Across America

Wreaths Across America welcomes you to participate in our annual laying of the wreaths effort at Arlington National Cemetery on December 12, 2009 and over 380 Remembrance Ceremonies world wide. Ceremonial wreaths for each branch of the military will be sent to all of the participating State and National cemeteries along with many local town cemeteries. Wreaths will also be provided for 24 offshore cemeteries, including Normandy Beach and a large Veteran’s commemorative wreath will be sent to each state’s State House.

Please take a few moments and visit their website: and join me in sponsoring a wreath!

I plan on attending (the only thing that will prevent me is if they send Matt home early!) the one in Arlington -- thank you for letting me know about this opportunity!

The wreaths at Arlington are so pretty when they're laid. It is an awesome sight.

Sorry I haven't been over lately. Hubby had a stroke and then I got really sick with sinusitis. After that the boys got sick with a touch of the flu. It's been quite a month.

Congratulations on the birth of Belle. I have added her and her parents to my prayer list. And yes, we should all count our blessings on a daily basis. Things could be so much worse.

Thinking of you and your family.
