About Me

I have lived in south Dakota, all of my life. My family is here, my roots are here. While I don't spend alot of time with "family", we always manage to bond together, when times get tough. Gunnar's death is more proof, of that.I also have a huge family of friends, and this "family"also pulls together, in a heart beat,when necessary. My parents live about 70 miles away, my husbands parents live about 7 miles from our house.

Cyber Friends & Memorial Day~~Do Not Forget....

(Below is a poem, written by a friend, I met, on a forum. I've asked her for permission, to post it here, for Memorial Day.)

Do Not Forget...
by PoconoProud

Do Not Forget
What We Lost For You ~
Our Lives and Limbs
Of We Proud and Few.

Do Not Forget
What We Gave Up For You ~
We Who Answered The Call
For The Red, White & Blue.

Do Not Forget
That We Bled For You ~
While Our Wives Wept
and Our Children Grew.

Do Not Forget,
For If You Do,
Our Sacrifice Means Nothing ~
and Chaos May Ensue.

Do Not Forget ~
It's Your Freedoms That We Fight For
,So Please, Do Remember
The Soldiers Of This War.

I will not forget...even though I don't have any family who serve in the military, I am grateful for the sacrifices of those who do. I pray that God will strengthen and protect our men and women who are in harm's way. Beth Uy
"He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:29-31
