Flag Pride

Josh got up at 6am this morning to make sure flags were put up in the area. I was so proud of him getting up and doing this. Flying the flag today is what I needed ~ to feel that pride, to quiet the lasting fears since 2001.

I have friends who have made beautiful expressions regarding Patriot Day, please check them out:

Thanks for the link-love! Speaking of flags, I remember in the weeks that followed the attacks, the flag factories couldn't keep up with orders. I remember buying a flag balloon because we didn't have one -to fly on our mailbox.

Thanks for visiting. :)

This was an emotional day for me to return to blogging when there are so many remembrances of what this day is all about. The photo you posted is a wordless reminder of how much this country means to me. Thanks for this post.
