Ah yes, My eldest is in senior high school here in Australia, also supposedly studying hard (big exams next week).

Blink and they have grown into men.

Off to look at more of your lovely blog,



Wonderful post, Marie ... heartfelt and thoughtful. These boys, they grow up to be men so fast. Mine will be 27 in July and I just don't know where the time has gone! I hope James has a wonderful birthday ... and I hope Ryan comes home soon :-)

although, I really wanted the baby pictures

This is the real deal.
I thought of Ryan and all those who are working so hard and sacrificing their own safety, comfort and family time to secure our freedom and security. Thank you for expressing this so well.

Hey! Nice Bridge!

Happy Happy Birthday James! Marie, what a fabulous image you crafted. Perfect. It is filled with light and hope and the beginning of life! Just glorious. **kisskiss** Deb

Can I just say, that was beautifully expressed. Your words moved me and I thank you for sharing your heart so openly. I am grateful to your son for doing what he does that people might be free from oppression.
