Honoring our Veterans!!

Least us not forget Valor. Courage, bravory and strength!
What others have gone through to give each and every one of us the Freedom we enjoy each day. To what we will never realize the length.
Yes, that’s right!
They have been out on the lines many long days and nights.

What you see here are Quilts of Valor, Quilting Honor & Comfort for Our Wounded. The Mission of teh QOV Foundation is to cover ALL war wounded & injured servicemembers and veterans from the War on Terror whether it be physical and/or psycological wounds with Wartime Quilts called Quilts of Valor QOVS. For more information please visit www.qovf.org

Today October 4, 2008
I went to our local park which holds an annual celebration in the park, I was a little late.
I was relieved to get there and be able participate in this amazing project which is very dear to my heart.
We are less than 30 days from the election of our next president, so please everyone get out and vot do your part!
Please pray for our country, for those who have served are are serving now!
We need each and everyone to do what we can to keep our country strong and take care of all those who have made this country what it is and why we are who we are.. let your voices be heard, let them be LOUD!!

    Lori,
    Thank you!
    I am so delighted to have met these wonderful women. On the right there is a list of items you can to to locally to donate fabric, quilting items, etc.

    In the background people have actually donated squares.

    Some of the strips we have all donated and signed today were done by the guild and various donors for this occasion. I signed next ot a flag because of my Ribbons of Hope project and also because of my latest mission statement, “How many flags will it take”?

    This very young man sitting here next to his mother has a bump on his head from the bumps and falls of learning to walk.

    He was so patient as I had his mother sign the paperwork so I could post this on the site.

    I emailed her the photo. I know for sure she understands the importance of her making a mark for her young son for a soldier who will be warmed by their greeting when the quilt is finished.

    I’m thankful for her and the guild for giving me the opportunity to share the importance of the cause and the warmth they provide with the messages that go out to each of these soldiers.

    The future is in this young mans’ eyes. Today is my Brother in laws’ birthday. He is in Iraq. How coincidental that the little boy has the first name as my brother in laws Last Name. It is a strong bible name. I felt so strongly moved that I was sent this day to send a special message to my brother in law that he would be protected until he returns. He has 5 girls to come home to!
