dream....

Just a moment today to say Thank You to all the Heroes who have served our country and to those who gave their life protecting it....

Heroes
By Jared Jenkins


In war, there are lives risked and lives taken
Men and women giving their best to defend what they love
They defend their country
Their honor
Their people
Some call them soldiers
Others call them heroes
Our veterans have risked their lives for us
They have lived through hell and fought with honor
Many have killed
And regret doing so
For every life, there is a soul
For every soul, there is a life
For those who have died, we show great appreciation and remembrance
For those who live, along with them live the horrific memories of battle
Some, memories of defeat
Some, memories of victory
Our veterans were more than soldiers
They were, and still are heroes.
Today is reveal day at Sketches in Thyme. The sketch this week is from Creative Scrappers.

I did a fun band page using some Lucky Girl August Old School kit. This is my niece Samantha while in one of her many fall competitions this year.

Don't forget that the winner in November will receive a $25 Michael's gift card.

Stop by Sketches in Thyme to see what the Mavens have to inspire you this week!
