A Day of Gratitude

My old buddy, Bethe, posted this as her profile picture on Facebook.    So touching.

To all the military families that sacrifice so much for our freedom, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. Or my goodness that is a precious photograph, I think all our armed forces living and dead for what they have done for us.

  2. We just watched the Memorial Day Concert from DC. We both cried. This is a beautiful tribute post, Katie.
    Say a prayer for our troops and their families. Each and every one of us needs to do something tangible fo them!

  3. Amen...heart moving post..thank you!

  4. Knew of the term 'Memorial Day' but never knew what it was remembering. Thanks for informing. Should probably say that I m in the UK.

  5. Poignant and powerful! Thanks for sharing this.

  6. That is hard to see and yet so many peoples reality....may their lives not have been lost in vain, we need to honor them by making them proud and respecting each other and working hard to make our world a more peaceful place.

  7. So heart breaking when you think about all the lives lost in this never ending battle. ON another note you and your sista always look so well put together! Cheers!
