I had no clue that May was Military Appreciation month until I read it in one of my magazines.  

Here are a few things we can do to let the troops know we care.

*Fly the flag on your house, car or business the month of May.

*Send an e-mail or letter of thanks at

*Ship a care package to a soldier through

*Write an uplifting message at

*Hire a Veteran; visit for more information

On another note I am such a slack blogger!  My trip to China was great!  I was sick for a few weeks after I got home with a URI that really set me back.  I am getting caught up though and have taken some great trips one being to Colorado Springs!!  The one year anniversary of my Dads death was very hard, much harder than I thought it would be.  We really miss him a lot.  Mikee is traveling a lot and we are at the end of school which as you know if busy.  We will have graduation soon and then there is baseball baseball.  I promise to catch up and check in on all my favorite blogs soon.

Welcome back! You've been missed.

Thanks for the post about military appreciation month. My husband is a pilot in the Navy Reserves and I didn't even know that!

I remember the anniversary of my dad's death was harder than I thought it would be too. You never get over it, (it's been six years since my dad died) - you just learn to live with it.

Welcome back.
