We Gaze At The Same Silver Moon...



And The Same Big Sky Above...




As Our Soldiers In A Land Far Away...

Long to see the faces

of the one's they Love!

Back Home...


Old Oak Trees...

 

Dressed up in yellow ribbons

Door Frames...



Adorned with Love!

As We Pray and We Wait...

We Fly Our Flag...



And We Celebrate

This Great Land!

so perfectly said sweet bella....thank you to every single soldier who fights and has fought for our freedom, to the spouses and families who sacrifice so much along the way, and to all who have given the ultimate sacrifice, their very lives, for the freedoms we enjoy every single day. GOD BLESS AMERICA LAND THAT I LOVE!!!!!! Happy 4th of July sister
