To Those Who Sacrificed

May a grateful country remember your service, today and always…

Kevin Freking writes about the challenges formerly homeless veteran, David Dyer, faces to support President Obama’s pledge to eliminate homelessness among veterans by the end of 2015. Formerly Homeless Vets Return To Streets To Help Others In Need.

Jose Antonio Vargas remembers immigrants who serve the military in Defining American on Memorial Day.

Sabrina Siddiqui reports, “Sen. John Walsh (D-Mont.) posed a question to his colleagues on Capitol Hill… If lawmakers are willing to spend billions of dollars on war, why are they less willing to invest in the welfare of veterans when they come home?” in John Walsh: Preventing Veteran Suicide Is ‘The Cost Of War’.

May a grateful country always remember the cost of war…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring!

We had fun at the park skipping pebbles by the stream. We made new friends. We shared our favorite things. We took turns.

skipping pebbles

The boys were 5 and 7-years-old. The younger had a speech delay. It didn’t bother Stephen. He was happy to have some company doing the things he loves most. I sat on the wall and picked up handfuls of pebbles from the stream bed. Each child held out his hand for a small handful at a time. Sometimes they would find a larger pebble, but mostly they were happy with the tiny handfuls…

We Made it to the Top!

enjoying the view

We made it to the top, taking breaks along the way and taking turns carrying the little guy. His low muscle tone and leg braces made it a work-out for everyone. It was a steep rocky hike, maybe a mile to the top of the mountain. The view is beautiful. Kids big and small love it!

One Word Photo Challenge: Red (Apple Picking with Great-Grandma)

One of our favorite family activities is apple picking at the local orchards. This photo reminds me of a time that was particularly special. It was one of our last family outings with Great-Grandma. She’s no longer with us and we miss her so much – her light-hearted humor, her stories, and her princess personality. She was always the princess – even in old age.

My grandma had Alzheimer’s. It seemed funny to me that even when she could no longer remember that my father was not my brother and her daughter was not her mother, she still remembered little Stephen had Autism and couldn’t talk. Stephen and Great-Grandma had a special silent connection that was beyond words! We love and miss you Grandma ❤

One Word Photo Challenge: Blue

For this week’s photo challenge, I didn’t want a cliché photo (water for the color blue.) I decided to try some symbolism…

I chose this photo because in this photo I see
