Lest We Forget

Chilling winds, rain on the verge of sleet. 45 minutes of my life to be thankful and remember those who have offered up the ultimate sacrifice for our country’s freedom. Time well spent. Not one minute felt wasted.

The bugler solemnly playing The Last Post. The bagpipes and Amazing Grace. My throat aches and tears spring to my eyes every time I hear it. Today was a proud day for me as a wife, a mother. My wee soldiers on parade in their cadet uniforms with their hero, Sgt. As I said, Proud.

My friend sent me a link this morning, an article in the London Free Press about her grandparents. Makes me proud to call myself a military wife.

How did you remember today?

Who’s that girl?

Me: 36, army wife and mother of two boys. Hoping for "one more miracle". We have tried the adoption route for almost 7 years and have recently changed directions. We are now down this road travelled by many, IF Blvd. 3 diui's, one BFN, two BFP and two heatbreaking miscarriages later we are at a crossroad ... do we try just one more time? Come along for the ride, be sure to have your tables in the upright position and your seatbelt firmly secured ... it is sure to be a bumpy ride.
