heroes among us...

Today is Pearl Harbor Day.
I am reminded of those who lost their lives on that fateful day
and the many days of war that followed.

Heroes comes in many guises. I am blessed to know
a few. My husband is one. He does more for others
in a week than most people do in a year.
And my son is a hero, too.
Here he is on the day he signed his
contract with the U.S. Navy.
He will leave for basic training in August, 10 days shy of his 19th birthday.
He is going into the Navy's highly regarded nuclear propulsion program.
I am so proud of his decision. He is a kind-hearted and determined young man
♥And he is a hero to me. ♥

Remember and hug the heroes in your life today.
