Take a Moment

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  Before you smother your brat with the fixin's or pour yourself another cold one or take a plunge in the pool, remember to observe what this holiday is all about.  Seek out a soldier and say thank you.  Send up a prayer for the families at home who are running the show without their partner.  Visit a veteran. 

If you don't know anyone who fits any of the previous criteria, allow me to introduce you to Stephanie Howell.  Stephanie is a scrapbooking guru, doily junkie, and mom to four of the most gorgeous little girls you will ever lay eyes on.  She's also the wife of a Ranger who is currently on his 8th (or is it 9th?) deployment.  If you're looking for a way to take a tiny act of kidness this Memorial Day and turn it into something really special, take a couple minutes to visit Stephanie's blog and leave her a comment of encouragement.  Thank her for her husband's service and sacrifies.  Tell her she's doing a great job of raising those babies (because she really is).  Let her know we appreciate what she and her family, and all those like them, do for our country. 

P.S.  Project Life Tuesday will be taking a break this week.  After a couple days away from home, I've fallen a bit behind.  We'll see you next Tuesday!
