Pictures coming tomorrow, I hope... But I wanted to give you a heads up on this weekend's bloghop for in which I'll be participating. This is a wonderful organization and I found them by accident but I'm so glad I did. I'm that person who thanks every soldier she sees even though I'm often nervous and somewhat embarrassed to do so. I say the same thing everytime... "You can't possibly hear this enough and we can't possibly say it enough but thanks for serving." I'm just old enough to remember the trauma of Vietnam and lucky enough to have been mostly unaffected by it (a dear friend of my mother's was killed there). I'm just young enough to have always been afraid of Nuclear War. I'm just lucky enough (or perhaps even just uninformed enough) to have never lost anyone I know personally who has served. I have a deep and abiding respect for only a very few professions-- for those who answer what I can think of as a calling to do something greater than any single (wo)man could ever be. Teachers, Clergy, and Armed Forces Personell are the ones that are right at the top of that list. Those who choose to minister, foster and aid the growth of our psyches and protect us inspire a sense of awe in me. So I'm participating in this bloghop to help promote and hopefully encourage all of you to make some cards for our armed forces serving overseas. I especially like that anyone can make a card. You can be brand new at crafting or you can be one of those card making godesses like or . The bloghop is Saturday, may 23rd and for a change, I'll have to post early in the day. I have to work that afternoon and evening, so I won't see alot of your comments or creations until later that night.
