Veterans Day

 I admired the way the Quilty Pleasures blog is remembering veterans today and want to follow their lead on my blog.  These are the initials of veterans in my life.

AEP, my dad; MEP, by brother; EP, my brother-in-law; JO, TO, JP, AO, all uncles; AL, a cousin;  JL, a young man who gave his life in Viet Nam; VB, a young woman in my parish; and many more.

I know there was no victory after WWI only the end of war, but today we at least remember all the vets who have served in any war. 
God Bless Them.

A beautiful block to honor those that have served.
