windshield notes...

how many times have you been to a store or mall and come back to find that people have left flyers to promote their business under the blade of your windshield wiper...or (gasp...that they "accidentally" bumped into your car..and it had relayed their you after they couldn't find you...does that happen?) well shannon and kevin were at the mall...and they came back to find a yellow blockbuster ad under the windshield wiper...but they noticed that something had been scrawled on the back of it...

They have a iraq veteran flag on the back of their van and a "proud wife of a soldier" ribbon also...several times we have been stopped by people in parking lots to thank us for kevins service..but to have someone stop and leave a note...was really a wonderful moment!

big hugz and thanks to all the veterans...and their families!

hugz and love til next time

Thank goodness there really are people out there who can appreciate what Kevin does and how much Shannon sacrifices. I wish everyone could be that cognizant of what is truly happening in our world!

That is so awesome...!

I've been trying to listen to your whole message for days but get too emotional because of those sweet voices! Just know I love you and adore you and all the happiness just makes my heart spingle all over! And all of it, everything, happened because YOU are a beautiful, giving, loving, generous and wonderful woman!!!

Here's to 2009 being the most fantastic year yet! It can only get better, right?! :)
