Christmas Wreaths



This will be my first Christmas without my mother, who was a veteran. I saw a piece on the news the other night about a wreath company in Maine that places wreaths on all headstones at Arlington Cemetery each Christmas. Such a daunting task to place wreaths on the thousands and thousands of headstones, but what a wonderful gesture of rememberance for those who sacrificed their lives. So, this Christmas, remember your loved ones and be thankful for family and friends. Find a live veteran who feels alone this Christmas and bless him or her.

This is one of the sweetest gestures anyone could do, and to think that my customers are more concerned over whether or not they will get that $500 Gucci purse they saw in some random store.

Have people forgotten how to give? Have they forgotten the lonely people in the world?

This picture is the ultimate in "giving" and "receiving" for the holidays. Give to those that don't already have and receive the inspiration it provides to so many others.
