Mosaic Monday

Memorial Day



oday is Mosaic Monday, and Mary from Little Red House, is hosting this lovely day.





My creationThanks to all the men and women who have served in the armed forces and those who are serving today, who are away from their loved ones.

My creation

My Grandfather was in the army during WWI and my Father was in the Navy during WWII. I remember my Grandmother and my Mom telling me how difficult it was for the family while they were away. Today I am remembering all the young women and men who are serving our country, and the families that wait for their return.

Happy Memorial Day

My creationThe song for this post is Home To Stay. Wish our troops were back home to stay.
