    I am so proud of myself tonight :)

    I made a quilt for Quilts of Valor for my BIL who was injured and blinded in Afghanistan. It was presented to him tonight and he loves it. My SIL has been telling him all about it. They put a tear in my eye when they called. It is so worth it to make these charity quilts.

    what a blessing you are to one of Americas heroes....please thank him from us for his service
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    Thank you feels like such an inadequate way to say to your brother-in-law how much his service to our country means. I'm saddened that he has to pay such a tremendous price to ensure our freedoms, but please let him know I appreciate him from the bottom of my heart and wish him well in the coming years.

    Your quilt, I'm sure, brought a little ray of sunshine in his life. Bless you.
    When a dying man asked his pastor "How long does it take to die?" his pastor's heartfelt reply was "A lifetime." Live life to the fullest, but stop now and then to enjoy the sunset.

    Please give him a long and heartfelt hug from the U.S. of A. These soldiers sacrifice so much... I cannot begin to comprehend what all they do.
    My mother lost her first husband in WWll, I have watched my oldest sister and brother angst throughout their lifetime wondering/missing their dad.
    So glad he and all others make it home!

    As the mom of 2 active duty military guys, I want to thank your precious BIL for his service. Thank you for making something comforting for him, as well. No one knows what kind of traumas these guys go through, and the news media wants to keep it secret. Praying that we will pull out of the middle east and just let them deal with their own issues.

    Thank your for honoring one of America's heroes. Please tell him that a grateful America says thanks. We can never repay our service men and women for the sacrifices they make to protect us and keep us free. God Bless your BIL and his family.

    We must never forget that freedom doesn't come free. There will always be a price for freedom. God Bless your BIL! Words will never adequately express the debt this nation (and all its people) owe to those who fight for our freedom all around the world.

    Remember them in your prayers, always!
