Good Friday Morning, and remember VETERAN's DAY

Wishing all a great day and a beautiful Friday. With the weather changing it seems to bring all of us a little more (great deal) more pain. As I sit here with my fingerless gloves (bless who ever designed them), my socks and covers writing my post, I am snuggled in warmth. Knowing soon I will have to move, but at least for a moment or two I have this comfort. I will get TOO warm and all of it will have to come off LOL. In contemplation, I am as always very grateful to be part of the community. May all enjoy your Friday and much love. In remembrance of All Veterans that have kept our world safe.

  • Wouldn't it be nice if we all had a temperature control.....I am the same...too hot, too cold but never just right!! I hope we all remembered the 2 minutes silence at 11.00a.m. this morning....if not...just spend a couple of minutes now reflecting on what it meant to us!!

  • Good morning DogMamma You are making me very jealous, Iv'e had to get up & go out in the cold & boy it was white this morning, looked like it had been snowing. Had to go to doctors to get bloods done again and the sun was pouring through the window & lovely blue skies & when I drove along the seafront, the bay looked like a huge pond, so still but my car heater was on full blast & my hands were like little blocks of ice lol..

    Peace, luv n light

  • Janet28. Ooo! Does sound cold. But what beautiful scenery you described. Hoping your labs come back good. Blessings

  • Yes when you think of what these soldiers went through for our freedom it puts things into perspective doesn't it , wear your poppy with pride

  • Hi DogMamma

    Please excuse my ignorance, I didn't realise you have a Veterans Day on the same day we have Remembrance Day in the UK. Do you wear the Poppy too?

    It is a very poignant time, particularly when you consider how many gave their lives.

    Did you hear about all the poppies last year at the Tower of London, one for each soldier, sailor or airmen killed in WW1? It was breathtakingly sad, but also beautiful.

    Today I saw an artist in Bristol had made a small figurine of each soldier killed in the Battle of the Somme, the sheer number of little figurines lying on the grass was very thought provoking.

    The numbers of people who fought in WW2 and survived are reducing all the time, and yet it was not too long ago that nobody would talk about the World Wars, as if it was something to be ashamed of and embarrassed about. I am glad times have changed now and more is known of their sacrifice, as it should be.

    Of course you have Veterans from Vietnam and we share casualties from Korea and the Gulf Wars too, we also Remember the fallen in the Falklands War.

    If ever there was a day of reflecting on the stupidity of wars, it is today.

    May Peace Live Long.

  • Yes, we used to have red poppies every where when I was a little girl. I remember standing on the street corner with my Grandmother handing out poppies with little pins to passersbys . It was cold, couldy and windy. We were all bundled up. Back in early 1950's . Do not see poppies so much now in my area.

    YES! I saw and remember last year the videos, etc on TV and social media about the Poppies, etc in London. It was beautiful, touching. All my uncle's and Father fought in WWII. Many cousins, too. Hopefully, we (the people of this world) will never forget. 😪 But, then again, there always seems to be another war created. After Nam, I hoped and prayed we would NEVER, but here we are again, heartbreaking

    God Bless this world and all the men and women who have fault regression and suppression.

    When will we learn to love each other? HUM! Sorry about the soap box. I do tend to run on at times. Gentle hugs. ❤

  • Thank you so much for a genuinely kind and thoughtful post my friend.

    All my hopes and dreams for you
