Happy 4th Of July

3669546092_53e7b3d783_zWishing you all the best for the Fourth Of July – surrounded by family and friends. I also wish to thank all of the service embers who gave us their all and to those service members who are fighting for our liberties and freedoms as we speak. As we still to this day vow to defeat our country’s flag, our liberties and freedoms we must face all those who oppose as a united front. So while you are enjoying your cookouts and parties – take a moment to just think why you are here today with the right to have such festivities.

One Nation Under God we live
Think about all some had to give

We the people share freedom’s life
In a world of ever present strife

Be grateful to those who keep this true
Warriors of our red, white, and blue

They’re trained by those of great skill
Honed to perform, so strong their will

They show what love is all about
They’ll fight for us, there is no doubt

Defending bravely what we are
No holding back each heartfelt star

Highly praise these men and women
Giving thanks time and again

Those in uniform will always be
The golden pride of this country

To A Father – Walk With Me, Daddy

424582_642467572450001_711189573_nThis poem has been circulating for sometime now around the internet. Retype and print onto a white card stock from your desk top publishing system. Use multicolored ink pads to put impressions of baby’s feet to make a background. I found that paint won’t work as well for a project like this as it tends to be too dark unless you put the foot prints off to each side. Use poster paints or watercolor straight from the tube and rinse feet well. Frame after in dries thoroughly and Dad will enjoy it in a special place in the home or on his desk in his office.
