Gold Star Family Day

Please click the image to learn more about this initiative.
All across this country, there are military families, families that have to let go of loved ones to help insure freedom for all of us.  We are the Blue Star families.  Our family is a Two Blue Star family.    Some of those loved ones never come home. Those families left behind are the Gold Star families.  There are many.

Today is Gold Star Family Day. Please light a luminary this evening in honor of those brave families that are enduring the honor of being a Gold Star family, for this honor means that they have lost someone very dear to them.  

May our Heavenly Father bless them all.

25. If you could go back in time to your childhood, would you? What would you want to change, if anything?

If it meant that I could have my daddy and my grandparents back, then, yes, I would do it. What I would change is the suffering that they endured, which would ultimately ease some of my own. Even if it had no effect on my own suffering, I would want theirs to be erased.

24. Is there another song that makes you reminiscent of your teenage years?

Are You Lonesome Tonight? and Endless Love are two that come to mind. Endless Love was the theme song from the movie that David and I saw on our first official date on my 16th birthday.  Are You Lonesome Tonight? was the theme song for our reunion after the most unfortunate break-up.

Hint for you girls out there: If you tell a guy that you don't want to break up with him, what he hears is, "I don't want to be with you anymore, but I don't want to be the one to break us up. You do it."   This is what they hear, even if you really, truly, definitely mean that you do NOT want to be broken up.  Spell it out for them, girls.  It can save a whole heap of heartache.

Hint for you guys out there:  Listen to what she is saying, not what you think she is saying or what you want her to be saying.
