Heroes and other Regular People

Every morning I get up, get going and read my blog list. This morning, one of the blogs had me in tears. I'm not sure why, it's a happy post. Yet here I sit, bawling my eyes out.

I never met the person who write the blog, never talked to her in real life. I'm not sure, but I don't think I've even exchanged e-mails with her. Yet the fact her "baby" girl made it home safely from her tour of duty in Iraq has me tearing up again as I type this. (If you'd like to read her blog it's www.dylnz.com)

For those of you who don't know, there's a group I found through facebook called "Hats 4 Heroes". They make hats, scarves, slippers, and other homemade items to send to our troops overseas. There are guidelines of course. I support them, and when (if) I ever learn to knit well enough I'll be sending stuff over there. www.hats4heroes.org Take a look at their website. Perhaps you can't knit or crochet or anything, but they could also use help with postage etc....

As a last thought, I leave you with John 15:13;
"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends."

That is wonderful! Megan, you are too fabulous. I know you will be knitting soon. I have a special pattern that I am going to make for you - you'll get it, I swear!! Even if you are afraid of seaming, I'll sew it closed for you, just to get you going. If you complete one, I know you will have the confidence to do more!

Thank you so much for mentioning us, hats4heroes.org, and hopefully we will gain some more wonderful members - just like you!

Thanks for this post Megan - she is a hero to us! And we don't have to meet to know each other. I love my bloggy buds!
