Today is Veterans Day. In an attempt to find a representative quote, I found this from Winston Churchill. It is relevant but not just for those who have served their countries. It speaks to me, and I suspect it will speak to most of you as well.

With that said, I want to thank all of the veterans who have served the U.S. and fought for our freedom. That includes both my dad and Tom’s.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie has been taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Unfortunately, during this break, Annie has been the victim of a hacker. This has continued to keep her off-line and caused her much distress. Please continue to send prayers to Annie and her family as they work to get their lives back to normal.

Many of us believe in Annie’s vision: “If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”

Please join us tomorrow for the next installment in “The Adventures of Periwinkle and Stinky.” These two spunky tabbies surely have something exciting planned, and you won’t want to miss out on the fun.

I am grateful now, more than ever for our Veterans and their service to the Country and we who live in it, thanks to them.

Winston Churchill is a top favorite with me. I have read several books devoted to his life throughout, and certainly the war years.
