Thankful Thursday ~ For Our Veterans

The more we sweat in peace the less we bleed in war.
-Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit-
This is our Grandaddy bean.
Our Mom is so thankful that he came back from the war,
when so many others did not.
We honor all Veterans today!

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.
