Military site for casualties
Another military mom in my neighbourhood just had a two week holiday with her son who had to go back about 11 days ago. She's been so worried as she and him had heard of some his military buddies having died in the course of duty while he was home. She's been so depressed and sad. I wonder how parents can live 'normally' while they worry so deeply with their children in Iraq or Afghanistan. My heart goes out to them. This fourth of july, I have been assigned (volunteered by fellow board members of our neighbourhood association, thank you) to organize the annual social bbq/picnic. Actually, it was for Memorial Day but we got rained out so I figured I'd combine Memorial Day and the Fourth. We are still having high chances of rain so cross your fingers.
My plan is to have people bring things for a care package for that ladies' son as a gesture of community support. Let's hope for a good turn out..
and let's hope I will get back in the swing of posting.. Mary just tagged me for
a 'Rockin' Girl Blogger' award.. I guess in my case, sometimes I rock, and sometimes I gotta roll with the punches.. that's what I've been doing lately..
Sure gotta get back to that 'rockin' state!!
I have to tag 5 other rockin' girl bloggers but I'll have to do that later today..I am being 'tugged' by my brood for breakfast.. rock on y'all!
