Veterans! Thanks and prayers
Dear Wonderful Community – as tomorrow is Veteran’s Day, and as a veteran suffering with pulmonary disease/illness/injury (not all service-related), I wished to send my love, prayers, and thanks to anyone reading this who has served, or anyone with a loved one who did. I spend my day out at Fort Snelling Cemetery tomorrow with an armful of flags, and a long list of sites to visit and say prayers over. I have cardiac issues and pulmonary distress, but our warm days in Minnesota are a Godsend. I have to park and walk to each site, and used to walk miles across the cemetery. If anyone has a loved one who served, is laid to rest there, and does not have a visitor coming, simply give me their name and I will look up and stop at their site. I can’t imagine offering this on the site is an issue, and as a ‘Christian, the longer my list is, the better! I think you can easily respond privately to this post if you wish. Semper ‘Fi and God Bless America Always!!!

Hello, @jms7! Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts and your love. I am grateful for the nice weather these days in Minnesota too. It is very nice of you giving a kind offer to the families whose loved ones rest at the Fort Snelling. I hope your day was peaceful.
Hello Hirono! And thank you for your lovely note. My day at Fort Snelling National was very beautiful indeed. It is a powerful thing to be of service to others. The day was exquisite so my time was wonderful. The sunshine allowed many to gather at the stones of veterans. It is a reminder that even with serious health issues, if one is still alive, it is a gift. I am happy to add any veteran to my list for next year! Don’t we all know that having something planned, even with Winter harshness on lungs, keeps one going! God Bless America! : )
May God bless you, @jms7. May God bless all of our Veterans. May God continue to bless America. Amen
@jms7 Thank you and all Veterans for your service to our country.
Peace and Strength,
Dear Rosemary, I’ve been meaning to write and thank you for your beauiful note. You can’t imagine how good it made me feel. I had walked down to my car that morning and after my wonderful day visiting Veteran sites, my car had been broken into, window smashed, everything ransacked, including the flags displayed in my rear window. It was so stressful. I have health issues and injuries, so this was awful. But then I got your lovely note that evening, and it changed everything. God Bless You for who you are – keep uplifting others, it means more than you know. And yes, God Bless America and all those who Love it!!!! : )
